Hello Mrs. Pam
Had to answer a fellow NEW YORKER…
All previous suggestions are valid so I offer just this:
When I left home after 911 going south was like moving to the moon 4me @ least. I attracted interest from prospects and employers through my personal w/o. Your question is specific so I’ll tell you, you may have to be willing to lessen your stance a bit.
I don’t intend to mislead you or make you think it cant happen but, after YEARS in this industry as an employee or independent you have to fill a gap & the better you are @ it, the better your chances of securing what your after.
LET ME SAY THIS TOO – be prepared for business overhead expenses, that’s being realistic (in-home, parks & rec, renting space, ect.).
Try to build relationship’s w/mgr’s of training @ local places. Some of them should be physically active (haha). Be proactive luv, ask to train them to show case your skill. WHO WOULDN’T WANT FREE INSTRUCTION as long as it is of value.
It may take tunnel vision or persistence but I say this to you coming from the same starting position but, now sitting in the seat you crave…
