In light of reading about the discouraging circumstances that many ex-JW's find themselves in because of not having taken advantage of educational opportunities or other employment related training in the past, I was wondering if there was an interest in discussing practical ways for people to increase their bottom line and get out of the poverty or near poverty zone.
I would think that there might not only be some useful tips and hints from some of the more successful ex-dubs but we could exchange in some downright capitalistic networking and make useful connections that might either land you a good job or better your lot in life by say getting things at a discount.
Personally, after leaving the Borg, I have had a fairly successful business career which included a variety of accomplishments that ranged from opening up America's first discount college textbook store to being an international privacy consultant and most recently a research scientist.
I've helped people establish credit when they had zero or worse than zero credit ratings, taught classes on entrepreneurship at college, and I've seen and networked with a wide variety of people that made amazing amounts of money by finding something they were good at and that was off the beaten path (you seldom get rich doing something everyone else is doing.)
Anyway, just wanted to see if there was an interest in discussing anything like this.
