I'm disabled (similar to aphasia - cannot verbally communicate-due to surgical error). Until two years ago life was great. I had some settlement money but also ran a very successful business out of my home.
What I loved most is the charitable work I was doing. I was just about to start a 501(c)3, which was my dream when I was young.
I'm also an only parent, thanks to a tragic incident when I was 3 months pregnant.
in 2021, everything fell apart as I was looking to purchase a home (my 1st home!).
My realtor (& his father) robbed me of everything: the life I built, our home, my business, savings, my studio, projects, all of my work, etc.
This was followed by a huge miscarriage of justice where the police 1) never dispatched, & 2) shut my case down before doing anything.
This happened because I asked for accommodation. I was told if I was expecting help that I would have to learn to "speak like a normal person."
I complained all the way to the DOJ and filed rights & ADA complaints, but this did nothing. Every time I received a response it claimed that while my case did not lack merit, the resources weren't there to pursue every deserving case & they could not help me.
I've fought for two years, and it has consumed me.
Now, at 37 I'm having to start over with nothing & absolutely no one, all while raising my young daughter.
What I need is insight about jobs that would allow me to remotely work so I can be with my daughter, (& wouldn't require speaking, of course).
Does anything like this even exist?
Any tech jobs? courses or "bootcamps" I should take?
Anything at all...
I've never been more lost...

I don't know why, but I have been feeling hesitant about publishing a portfolio.
I just feel so scared in posting all of my accomplishments online where anyone can see. I've tried multiple times creating a career portfolio and I always abandon it midway. I also feel like I don't have enough accomplishments I can brag about. Any advice?

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
