I'm getting laid off (twice in 2 years) at the end of this week. But there's a silver lining in every dark cloud. My thing, I'm really starting to enjoy being with people than to be in a relation to a computer at work.
My first business (failed) online advertising. (Huge money pit!)
After that I was a bookkeeper that my position was absorbed by the director to cut back on expenses (laid off in other words).
After being a bookkeeper, I was out of work for a while before finding the job (that my position stops this Friday).
Fortunately for me, I have done lots of presentations about income recovery (very ironic? Huh?!). Anyway, I was asked to do a presentation about health insurance.
I'm also applying a job for special projects that is a full-time job! :-)
How do you see silver lining in dark clouds?

So far 3 is the count of jobs loss, actually 2 because the last one was our choice to walk away from. I'm in the middle of bottom lining what we need and doing everything to hold on. Faith and hope with action. Improved skills for better interviews not willing to accept just anything which means we did decide not to go for a few offers, thinking it would be more of what we were doing, It was a contract job that could have ended any time. Finally something came along that was a good fit and gave two weeks notice. Still on edge but working hard to hold on to this one, at least for a year or two. If we should lose again will be in a better place to weather it. My plan is to unplug from all the jobs that use and lose you. Do not even want to be tied down to a 30 year house payment a trap I feel. Gain the world and lose you're soul not an option. If you Know Andrew From touch by angel that is my cloud.
