This podcast was motivated by someone I know who is unemployed and wants to get a corporate job. Of course I thought he should start his own business.
My suggestions on this podcast include starting a website to document your volunteer work, your passions, consulting skills etc.
You can setup websites for free at wordpress.org. If you have free time use it to promote yourself via website.
You can create a site very easily today via the web browser you are using to view this site.
