I've been out of work for some time as I was laid off in the initial big wave of recession lay offs. Since I've made the career decision to change paths and I'm back in school and doing well actually. My wife and I have our photography business and she has an industrial sales job but given what we've been through... we just had another baby... I'm going to come clean and just say it. I have a mountain of bad debt and no job yet... I don't want to get depressed about it... I was hoping that there might be someone who has been there. It's not that I want advice, I mean, I'm way open to it, don't get me wrong... I'd just like to hear a success story. I'm hopeful. It would just really help me to hear some accounts of perseverance.
