I cannot believe we are facing another threat of recession again. It seems like this has been the story of our year.
When the great recession hit us. I had spent 14 years working in technical Contract Manufacturing. The 2 largest manufacturing plants in our town closed in the same month.
The trick is not to panic and remember that something is better than nothing. I worked in a workforce center during the great recession of 2009, doing what I could to help others find employment. I believed that even though the jobs we were used to were gone, some jobs would at least help us get by.
I found out that I liked working for and with others. I am a life coach now and build my own books and courses. I am having a ball with it; it is the best work I have ever done. And I spend more time with my wife and enjoy life.
The idea is not to get so hung up on something you always did that you cannot leave it when it has moved on. We need to not look at the past as much as we should look at the future to see what’s next.
Nothing is forever, and something new is always coming along.
