I sold my business. Help!! Where do I go now?

I owned my own fertilization and weed control business from March of 2004 to March of 2012. Mainly because of the economy, I had to sell out to Trugreen. I worked for them as a regular applicator all last year, and thinking I would move up into management, I am with them this year. There are no management openings, and won't be any openings for a VERY long time. I have no college experience, yet, being a business owner for 8 years has to count for something, shouldn't it? Where can I go to find a job that won't be one where I am on the same level as someone who has less experience than I do? Is there somewhere here in Indianapolis that I can go to find a management position out of the gate? What should I do? Thanks!
