I’m with Robin! Having your own business has a lot of pluses and being artistic sure gives you a lot of options. I wouldn’t downplay MLM. The word AMWAY always comes to people’s minds, but there are great companies out there that are “real” rather than all hype. I know Robin is in one of them.
I’m 57 so I know how you feel. It used to be that age meant wisdom and had a place of honor in society … but definitely not in the American society … but let’s not get too philosophical on here :-)
