I have been in serious discussion with a mother of a professional photographer, and found out that there is a reason for all the closings of photography studios around the Country. The field is fairly well saturated, and most photographers freelance out of their own homes and have the developing done off-site. I support my wife’s dream of achieving her dream of being a freelance photojournalism photographer with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. However, I am now doubtful as to making a photography studio a success.
So I am back to square one, and researching something that I can do self-employed, that will be self-fulfilling. I filled out the DOL/O*Net Interest Profiler and the top two areas I was rated in were Artistic (26) and Conventional (19). The next thing I did was to select the Job Zone. I selected Job Zone 5 Extensive Preparation Needed, because I don’t want to fail at my goal. Lo and behold, self-employment was one of the options, and that is exactly what I need. So I am now at a point of trying to select a new self employment career path that is both artistic (creative) and conventional (run of the mill). I like to think ‘outside the box’ and I have a lot of outside the box thinking to do! I am expecting a call from the VR&E program sometime next week, and need to have a new feasible employment plan ready.
I am wide open to receive suggestions! (that was a subtle hint….)
went to college after i got out, dropped out within spittin distance of only a few months for 3rd semester to be done. And then, 7 years later, got medicated, went back to college. only made it 2 semesters and 3 weeks of classes........notice a pattern? some of us just can't be around other people. it's physically and emotionally exhausting to be on Red Alert all day. good luck to you, educating yourself i always believed was a process of continual growth, why is a "degree" necessary when you're thinking about your own business. do what fulfills you as a person, let it flow. we only live once
Hi Buck, I just got my appointment scheduled for my MH and it was so quick. I went to the VA Monday with all my paperwork and the VA rep uploaded all of it. I got a call from the VA today and scheduled my MH in 2 weeks, but I was wondering why was it so quick.
I appreciate your feedback. I noticed at the beginning of page one that he put the following information:
- Medication- noted Digoxin, Metoprolol, and Dilitiazem
