Should I ask for a raise?

I hope this doesn't seem insensitive because I know most of you are searching for work. Believe me, I was in your shoes not so long ago and I remember the agony and heartache but I need opinions. I can't post to Facebook because I broke my own rules about not friending people at work. So...

How to start a business

I have always enjoyed baking and cake decorating. Since 2014 I've made this my side hustle but I would like to get the ball rolling for this to be my main source of income. Can anyone let me know what are the main keys to get started. I have a current job that I am scared to leave due to security and benefits. The leap of faith scares the heck out of me though...

Concentrate with your job then the free times of your time then you can do your baking.

Private Transportation/Driver/Courier

It is difficult for a woman to get a business up and running. Well for me it seems impossible. I'm 47, going through a nasty divorce and trying to improve my credit score. My driving record is great. I'm an attentive listener and conversationalist. I believe in my business choice. Networking is a must and I'm not able to get out and do that much. Always thinking about alternatives to loans and grants since I've had no luck with…

I've been throwing around ideas about trying to open a business, or something like that to help the community in some type of way, in these areas or something…
