    I am amazed that you didn't get any responses and it has been, what?, three weeks?

    I saw what I thought was a great opportunity. A friend went to work temporarily (between "real" jobs) for an outfit called "Home Instead." The idea is people stay with persons who can be home instead of in a nursing home, since the only thing that they really need is not to be alone.

    She was paid $8 and the company billed $16. This happens to be a franchise thing, but it's not that well known. My mom has a friend in California who started her own outfit with similar purpose, etc. She was in the black in less than a year.

    Whatever you do, I do wish you luck. Been cheated on and left holding the back. Hated it, but I got stronger and learned alot.

    Take care and good luck.

    The business that you mentioned, Home Health Care is exactly what I owned.

    I started it on my own, no franchise. We did well, but now I intend on going back into the business on my own, with non-compete clauses since my partner, and partner of my husband during the cheating time, is buying it, unless she backs out.

    I am hoping for other ideas, though, your response is helpful.

    I guess you do learn alot.......Trust no one close to you and you won't get burned.
