In years past I have worked 3-4 jobs at a time to try and make ends meet. I am a licensed hair stylist, but in my town it is not a profession that earns a lot of money. Even if it was, I would not be able to work full time due to the physical demand of the job. Recently cost of living had skyrocketed in my town. In two years rent has more than doubled and housing prices have soared. I am struggling. I have had to scale back to two jobs, and I can hardly keep up due to constant migraine attacks. Rent is more than a mortgage, but after all my bills there is hardly anything left for food and no way to save for a downpayment or retirement. Now at 30 years of age I am trying to determine a new career to better support myself and give myself the leniency I need to care for this disease.
Does anyone out there have suggestions? I don’t have a degree, I do have a license in hair design, I have been a production manager for a local theatre company, directed theatre, and worked as a nanny. Currently I work in a salon, and have a retail job. HELP!
