    I’m am writer/actress and trying to start my business. I have autism and change can be hard for me. I have been offered work to start in a school as a TA which is full week days.Now I have to cancel my morning hobbies.cake class as I am building better skills to do that. I’ve moved in a new house with housemates and feel i need work for side money. I’ve now been offered to do I two week business course but that means I need to take the two weeks off work which I know I lose the job as its agency work. I need to do this course as its structured and may help me. Any advice?

    What do you mean “offered” to do a course?

    Without knowing any details here, you should take the job you were offered because it pays you money. It does, right?

    Then, find a business class that you can take at night or on weekends, working around your job schedule. You should not give up a paying job to take a 2-week course.

    This sounds a little all over the place. You are starting a business, you need this course (do you? Is it legitimate?) but you need a job to live in you apartment. So you cannot take a course that are all day long (doesn’t seem legit!) that would make you lose your job.

    You need a roof over your head. This course isn’t going to help you in the way you need right now. There are real business classes you can take at business schools or community colleges that are offered at different times of the day and different days of the week, so people can have a life and work like a normal person in the world. This doesn’t seem like a good thing to do u less you have a lot of savings to get you through losing your income.

    Yes, the post is confusing. I think if LW was offered a paid TA position that the school believes they are prepared to do this work ‘as is’ and that taking a structured two-week course is not a necessary first step.

    I’m unclear what LW means by ‘trying to start my business’. Writers and actresses have agents. If you’re a writer, you write and your agent tries to sell it. An actress goes to auditions lined up by her agent.

    Do you have another stream of income if money from your job is “side money”? I agree that the value of a two-week business course is probably minimal. Like… even an MBA isn’t necessarily “worth it” these days, so I’d really question what you’ll get out of a two-week course? Take the paid, full-time job.
