Ahhhh, my layoff. Our biggest client was a bank that was seized and auctioned off by the FDIC so my ad agency closed it’s LA office. I knew it was coming and sat in anxiety waiting for the day to come. I sent out resumes, networked, did everything I could to get out before axe fell. The economy was the economy…and nothing materialized. I was dejected, depressed and panicked.
Since my layoff, I’ve learned to look at this time as an opportunity…to volunteer, to become an eBay seller, to be an extra in a movie, to get on the ESPYs red carpet and to write an ebook. Recently published, “FUNemployed: Finding the Upside in the Downturn” offers tips and humorous stories to help the unemployed find a silver lining in a bleak situation. Reviewers call it witty and informative so I think I’ve found my new career. It can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore, Kobo, Sony, Diesel and Smashwords.
