I sympathize. What a miserable situation. I retired three years ago only to lose most of my investments (and income) in the market debacle last fall. Unlike you, I only have a BS, but in this job market it seems that all those fancy, expensive initials following one's last name don't hold much weight. Go figure. I did some research on jobs that i could do from my home office and found a dynamite company that markets top-tier, three level financial education, and growing. The executive team is great and the support and training they offer is like nothing I've ever seen.
I worked like crazy in the beginning - learning a new business, becoming familiar with the online system and the back office, generating leads, etc. Now, however, I am at the point where the business is solid, I have leads coming in every day and I have built a good residual income. I'm making more now than I ever did working for a corporation and I own my own business. No one can fire me or lay me off. No office politics. No back-biting. No one to control my financial future but ME.
The icing on this cake, though, is that I market a product that really, really helps people. I bought it myself and use it for everything from basic financial management to investing. If I'd had this kind of information before last fall, I wouldn't have watched 2.5 million dollars worth of investments disappear almost overnight. If I'd had this information when I left college, my whole financial life would have been drastically different -- and better!
Best of luck to you. If you have any questions about what I did, please feel free to contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well, this story has a potentially happy ending. I was finally fired from that job (the reason - by using the word "frivolous" to describe a (quite frivolous) act by one of the bosses at a 1-1 meeting I was deemed quilty of not showing "due respect". I was given a month's severance but managed to find a job a couple of days later. In the meantime I ran across what looks like a golden opportunity to do some online teaching, which is something I have always wanted to do and still have time enough to work on my doctorate.
So far so good, although I am always interested in financial services so I'll shoot you an email.
