I just had to laugh at the last bullet. Were you thinking of me when you wrote that? haha!


Decompressing after a long day and happened upon your latest post.

The worse way of all to experience a sudden loss of income is to suddenly lose a spouse, and this is exactly what I'm walking through with a friend right now... I just finished blogging about it, in fact!

Didn't know you'd be part of an answer to prayer today, did you? ;)


Thanks for this. My husband volunteered to be laid off last year and has been working on a new career in real estate. As you can imagine, this is not the ideal time to be doing that! Although it was a great long term decision for him, it is hard to get through the first couple of years of little to no income. I appreciate the coping advice!

My company is offering severance packages at the moment, and I'd love to take one, but the fear of not finding a job after the severance dries up is keeping me there...

I'm not concerned though that I'll be layed off, but I do have other ventures I'd like to be working with, and a corporation is not one of them.

One of the best pieces of advice that I can give is make sure you are always building your network. Recently within the last year, my network has matured enough that I feel like I could honestly get a good job within at least 12 months if I ever decided to leave my company. (and is great for managing your network).
