Iam also very good in technical and nontechnical content writing..iam very much in a confused state, plz help

Ans: Dear Harsha,

I understand your situation and the challenges you're facing in your business. It can be difficult and overwhelming to navigate the job market after a long period of running your own business, but there are options available to you.

Your background in sales and marketing, as well as your skills in technical learning, negotiations, and strategies, could be valuable assets in a variety of industries. You may want to consider looking for a full-time job in a sales or marketing role, or even in a related technical field. Additionally, with your skills in technical and non-technical writing, you may be able to find freelance work in marketing or content writing.

It's important to remember that no one job or career path is set in stone, and it's never too late to explore new opportunities. You may also want to consider seeking guidance from a career counselor or mentor, who can help you evaluate your skills and interests, and suggest potential career paths that align with your goals and strengths.

I hope this helps. Good luck, and stay positive!

Best regards,
