The recession is biting us all. I want to share a book that will, hopefully, help you get back on your feet.
This book is written for you: the middle-class worker who thought this would never happen; who believed you were invulnerable, destined for a great career, and that unemployment was something that only happened to other people. It’s for good, hard-working people who see the American Dream moving inexorably out of reach and who are totally unprepared for what is to come.
Well, I have been there (far more often than I’d like) and these are the options, tricks, and traps that have kept me sane and solvent. It’s real-world advice based on having lived through the sledgehammer blow of being fired, the terror that wakes you up in the middle of the night, the desperation when you hit the ATM and your account is empty, the day when you don’t even have enough cash to get your car out of the parking lot.
Trust me, I’ve already made all the mistakes there are to make.
It’s also the tricks I’ve learned to keep afloat, to buy the baby diapers when I didn’t have a single dime, to pay doctors and hospitals and lawyers and insurance and mortgages, to slide through with my skin intact, most of my family at least still speaking to me, and even have a laugh or two.
It’s a compendium of what I really bought with the money I wasted on that online job-site upgrade, paying for a ‘professionally-written’ resume, and hiring that ‘job coach.’ Not to mention all the times that I’ve worked weeks on a project that everyone ‘simply knew’ would bring in a million dollars – except that it didn’t.
Read the book. It will make you feel better and, just possibly, it will help you get that next job a bit sooner.
