I have been laid-off from the construction management industry twice in the last 8 months. Through my friends at NCBN and 48days (thanks Marilyn M.), I was encouraged to look into a freelance writing web site. I did so, and within one week I was earning money from my home office by writing web page content.
At the same time, a message on 48days.net provided a contact that has been giving me construction consulting work for the last two months.
The freelance writing may become a full-time job that can pay the bills without me leaving the house!
I write all of this to say thank God for Christian networking and the opportunities we have to help one another in a powerful way.
