My SCSis called today. It seems when excrement decides to roll downhill, it picks up speed and becomes an avalanche. I havent gone into alot of detail in regards to her situation so I'll just say that everytime I hear from her, the situation's gotten even worse. Not only did her husband tell her ON THANKSGIVING DAY that he wanted a divorce, but due to events after that day she's managed to lose her job as well. I really feel for her because I was in somewhat the same position not just a few years ago (losing a job through no total fault of my own). The company boss has encouraged her to file for unemployment and he'll be certain it goes through (the firing wasnt due to poor performance). However, now she's facing a divorce and now no income. The call wasnt all bad though as she's driven to Georgia to pick up her sister and they're making plans to go to Louisiana to get their mom so they can all move to Georgia together after the divorce is final. She's needing a job now though. What she needs is a job that she can do from home online, something she'll be able to keep even after she moves. She is like me, only a high school education, but is quite bright and learns fast (she learned that web stuff faster than me!). In the job she was at, part of her duties was to revamp their website and make it easier to use for the customers to use. She even added the MSDS sheets so they are available to their clients online, just incase one was needed after hours. She'd be really good at web upkeep for a site (or even more than one site). If anyone has any ideas as to where she can at least start looking, it'd be appreciated.

*Wonders if Styxie even knows what MSDS's are? LOL*

I wish I had some ideas, but unfortunately I don't right now. If I think of anything, I'll let you know.

Material Safety Data Sheets :)

Yeah, we had em when I worked at WalMart. Told us how to best handle and dispose of the chemicals. As the claims (damages) associate, I needed to know where they were at all times.

If she's good at websites, she can maybe design custom blog layouts for a short time. She could start her own blog and then maybe design a button that we could all put on our blogs for advertising. If she started a blog, she could also be paid for advertising for google and other companies. She can also perform product reviews. It may not be much but she might have a great talent and make a ton of money. I saw one that was charging $40 + the price of the graphics. That $40 is all profit because it's her time.

It was just a thought.

I don't have any ideas. I do wish her luck though!

Wifey's idea sounds good though... Maybe suggest that to her?

Wow, talk about a double wammy! I wish her all the luck in the world. If I come up with any ideas, I'll be sure to let you know. *hugs*

Has she tried Elance? You have to bid on jobs, but it might be a good place to start, especially since she's good at that Web stuff.

I'm no help with the job situation - but I'd like to point one thing out...Your friend has a really good friend (YOU) in that your are doing everything you can to help...That is a blessing - it might not pay any bills, but it's sure worth something.
