Been there, done that. Tried to become a professional photographer. I was actually fortunate enough to be picked up as a stringer for a local metropolitan newspaper, and even wrote a few magazine articles and contributed all the photos. I proved I was capable doing the job, the problem is that the job did not pay well, and I was capable of doing other things that were far more profitable in the long run. Now photography is a hobby and engineering is my profession.

I'm currently on disability on can work a desk job. I have many yeas of experience in the bookkeeping field and was a former owner of, with my late husband, John Vines. We started John's Plumbing 32 years ago and it is now one of the largest plumbing companies in the State of Alabama. After my husband's untimely death, my son (Who is a pilot also) decided to take over the company and keep his father's good name and reputation going. He has now had it for almost fourteen years. His father and I worked very hard to make this company grow, but with a small time atmosphere; always being there to speak to the customer personally and put their plumbing needs at ease. I also enjoy coming up with little jingles like John's: "We Repair What Your Husband Fixed". This trademark is registered with the State of Alabama so that no one can use it in their business. I have also worked for many department stores and was top seller for many months in my department I have also worked in the medical field for many years; I was the supervisor for all 23 American Family Care Clinics here in Alabama and Mississippi. These positions were held in the 1990's.

I came across a great story about an ex-con who was having trouble finding work after his release from prison. He was not getting calls back after disclosing his criminal history, and decided to start his own business based on the fitness regiment he developed while in prison.

Most interestingly, the founder makes an effort to hire other former inmates for his company. Founding a business may not be right for everyone, but it's good to know that there are people out there who will relate to your situation and are willing to help give others a fresh start.

Here's an article about the founder and company: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/10/nyregion/at-a-gym-in-manhattan-fitness-tips-from-ex-convicts.html

To all seekers including myself. When you can find a Job, how about us creating a job, a business, our own business. Let's find someone with the qualifying skills that will enrich and or add to what we or you have and get a building and make people come to you. Create our own business. As you and I drive around and go in and out of businesses doing what we do, lets find away to bring out the best in ourselves and become business owners. Via a consulting firm, an Administrator where people hire you to do their work. Serena Fortenberry with all the years of work, maybe, just maybe you can open a client, something.....Powerful minds out there, right here. Dream and Dream big, this is America, build your name, your business, your company, your corporation, your LLC.. Can we do this? I can!... this is how I AM SEEING IT NOW. Change your thinking from Employee to Employer. Some of you have already been thinking like this, and have started, completed.. Some of you have been told, so Just Do it. Whose stopping you? Write your business plan, if you don't know how ask. Search. Help is out there for all of us..Faith without works is dead. Believe in yourself. I believe in you.

How I got hired at #AlanGraves'MathTutoringService

I started the business myself after a series of harassing employers in higher education which left me with no trustable colleagues or workplace benefits.
