Done the Time, Paid for the Crime, Can’t Find a JOB! Ouch!


You have served your time, learned from your mistake and now you are trying to find a job.  Yet, ever where you go you cannot find a job.  At this point you are at a folk in the road.  You have options, although you are not feeling it right now.  You can turn to the right and keeping looking for a job, or you can turn to the left and make some quick money that possibly might land you back in jail.  Your decision is a measure of your character.  How you handle life challenges is a measure of how successful you will be.
