Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.

 

If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.

 

Believe in yourself and go for it!

Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
