Congrats on the new baby asurfaholic!
The legal meaning of "license" is approval to do something that would otherwise be illegal. Strange that things like fixing electrical sockets, shuffling numbers, drive a car, provide medical assistance, etc are all illegal if not for the state's approval. Hmm....can you smell the freedom?
I don't have much to offer to your situation except big picture thoughts but wish you luck otherwise. Having those skills will be more important in the relatively near future than the purely legal business aspect. People without direct hands-on skills will travel a tough road ahead, I'm afraid. For you, might be better to keep the job you have, put any earnings you can spare into assets that maintain value and hone your electrical skills as a side-gig. There will be a time soon where those skills will pay for themselves, with or without permission from the state. I assume you know by now that there's some big changes underway in the world. Skills will be the most valuable asset you have.
