Today is a new day.
I have never been in a place of losing a job before. I’ve had a number of friends who have gone through it. I’ve been able to be a support for them, yet that experience had never hit me personally. Until April 13th.. yep.. Friday the 13th.
Gotta love irony!
I am also never been on to publicize my own space like this. There is so much narcassim in social media and online. I have always prided myself in not being that way, almost to a fault.
Why am I writing this?
Good question! It is an idea that hit me this morning as I made breakfast. I set-up a lot of this in previous posts, but this is where I honestly share where I am at. I am also doing this not only for me, but for someone who may read this and connect because of where they are at.
Where do I go from here?
I have applied to TONS of jobs (btw.. the application process is the biggest garbage bin out there!!) yet because of friends and network connections.. I am interviewing with a few marketing/advertising/PR agencies.. but as we all know the process is slow.
Alongside.. I am starting up a podcast that will focus on how people discovered business insights alongside with having a family or life. I am also re-launching Edooce.. more to come on that if you don’t know what it is. more to come.. hopefully very soon.. but it is just a side hustle.. Learned more about that in a recent episode from Donald Miller and Chris Guillebeau on the StoryBrand podcast
What have I learned so far?
You see who is willing to be invested and most don’t give a shit if you find something or not. Check-ins happen by some but no willingness to be invested. Some will simply walk-away so they don’t have to be involved in the dirty side of life. But in all of that.. The true connections and friends rise to the top. I have seen some true friends really step out and it has been overwhelmingly amazing. I have also seen the other side too. It is great learning in life!
My ask for you
Question for you..
What has you experience been in this type of situation?
