An eternity ago I was sitting at my desk doing Autocad drafting work in the Minneapolis MN area. Then, I got blown out the door. My old boss said “Hey, it’s a temp layoff.” he would call every few weeks and say I had to wait.
Well, this went on for a couple of months. Finally I started looking for anything else and of course I didn’t find much. I saw an ad for that WindowAcademy course and bought that and I found some super cheap cleaning stuff on CriagsList, which is weird because I keep looking and I have never found anything like that since.
In any case I went out and got a job washing a woman’s windows and cleaning her yard. Then I found a second situation like that. Unfortunately winter hit and I can’t seem to find any window washing stuff. Part of it is that I have only worked a couple of jobs.
I am willing to hustle. In fact I out an add on CL asking if someone would teach me how to do interior painting and I would pay them a little or work as a volunteer to learn. The real problem is I have gone through the unemployment and I am on the extension and I had to borrow money from a relative so any day I could be out on the street.
So if someone in the twin cities could use some help or if you could teach me some marketing or various skills so I don’t have to be stuck I would be very appreciative.
Also as goofy as it sounds I am a hypnotist so I can also barter hypnosis for weightloss or stopping smoking etc as well as working. It’s a bit out there but I am willing to offer what ever may be of use.
Please don’t flame or kick me when I’m down guys. I already feel pretty screwed as it is.
