Job hunting, still can't figure out how or where

I have a 2001 business management degree. For the past 5 years I have been working at the family store, it is construction. My functions were pretty much this: phones, invoices, billing, some marketing, register, and some ordering from our distributors.

I want to branch out of there and start a career. But i haven't much luck. I do not know where to look, or better yet what I am good doing. I have stating before that I want to get into graphic design. I am taking an intro course in a few weeks to see what it is about, meet people, and possibly get a greater perspective on what kind of jobs to look for.

Also, my minor cp has held me back in the sense that I should have done this years ago. But the past is just that. I'm looking at the present and seeing what I can do, and I am having diffficulty. i do not know what to do, how to begin. Do I look at other options, like being a secretary? I think my cp might limit me in terms of my typing and such, but the thing is will it be fulfilling? I know jobs are hard to come by now, and take what I can get, but what should I take? What am i capable, I dont know?? Why did i even listen to my father - he had always said a business management degree will take you anywhere - i do not know if that is true. 5 years at that place and I have become repulsed by the customers, I have started to hate everything about business. I am into creativity and such, but I have a tendency of not really believing in all of my hard work either!! I just feel at an end can I find my way?
