The road to self employment; one man’s (brief) story

And now I’m proud to announce the release of my latest eBook, “The Self Employment Chronicles.” For only 99 cents!

Self Employment Chronicles

Here’s a taste:

“The Self Employment Chronicles” began as a therapeutic post written on the progressive political blog “Jack and Jill Politics” several days after the author was laid off from a job he had held for more than five years. He had gone to work that morning as a well-paid employee of the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office. Not quite 45 minutes later he was unemployed after having been informed by his boss that budget cuts were forcing him to effectively erase his position – and his full-time income and his health benefits.

So what is the first thing you do when you become unemployed? How do you talk yourself down from the ledge? What are the most important steps you need to take to ‘keep it all together’ and to keep yourself moving forward? No doubt the answer to those questions may vary depending on individual circumstance, and what works for one person may not necessarily work for the next. Still, in an economy that by all measures has been described as nothing short of brutal on the vast majority of Americans, a growing number of those unemployed Americans have chosen to create their own jobs rather than wading back into a job market where they felt the odds were considerably more stacked against them than in years past.
