Fired... Quit... A New Start... Or Just Fed Up...
Let this book serve as your lantern to a brighter tomorrow.

self-help * employment * entrepreneurship * self-discovery

"I'm aware of the mixed feelings and emotions during this time of your job loss. There are knots in your stomach that serve as a reminder of the impeding concerns. You're anxious about tomorrow's turmoil. I know these feelings. I've felt them too during my times of unemployment. This means I've ventured through the valleys of uncertainty -- more than once."

The book focuses on self-help, self-discovery, entrepreneurship, and employment. The chapters are transitional, and the hope of the book is to reawaken the reader's motivation -- to give some sense of direction by allowing the author's defeats give insight into the looming uncertainties that exist in an unemployed person's mind.

"Unemployed or fearing unemployed, start at square one. Do as nature does. Squirrels gather acorns and bears prepare for hibernation; you too must gather your own acorns and prepare for hibernation."

Whether terminated, fired, discharged, laid off, or aware of an upcoming turmoil, it's the actions taken now that will determine whether life becomes bountiful with enjoyment, or if this phase in life becomes an experience comparable to hell.

"Electricity, shelter, and a safe place to sleep ... trump the need to preserve your credit score, or purchase a new gizmo."

With unemployment at staggering new heights, many have lost their job. The question then becomes: What now? What does one do when abandoned by their second family?

Too often the newspaper headlines inform us of the thousands, or millions, of jobs lost. It has become routine to read about the new round of layoffs -- so much so that it's discussed on porches in the same manner as approaching bad weather.

And from this, many tend to blame themselves, and some will fall into a depression. Whatever is felt by you, understand that this experience isn't something to personalize; the termination was a business calculation. Put this ordeal behind you and move forward. Sure, rough patches and doubt will exist, but with a plan and preparation, this hurdle in life may soon prove to be the most enlightening.

The book examines the route to take to become an entrepreneur. The book also contains exercises to guide you in finding your near ideal job.

Learn how to choose a suit for a job interview, learn how to raise capital for new ventures, and ultimately, learn how to enjoy life. You will see the importance of discovering your life-balance. You will also learn how to invest in your own life portfolio.
