A Survival Guide for the Unemployed

Most of us would agree we can’t trust the government’s unemployment numbers. They no longer count the many who have been out of work for a given amount of time, presumably because they’ve quit looking. But have all of them?

How many are enjoying being out of work and are using it as a transition to other, perhaps better things? I’ve done it myself in past years. When you consider the lives of many notable figures in history, career change and greatness have often been preceded by times of adversity.

Consider the following, taken from the inside flap of The Unemployment Survival Guide, by Jim Stringham and David R. Workman.


“Break Time: Nourishing Yourself through Unemployment teaches how to handle one of life’s most stressful situations by focusing on how to take care of you until finding another job. With millions of people unemployed each year-this book couldn’t have come along at a better time. Included are tips for a healthy approach to being out of work, and how to keep unemployment from affecting family and friends. Authors Jim Stringham and David R. Workman illustrate that newfound freedoms discovered through unemployment should be embraced and celebrated. Working to find joy, moving forward, and improving yourself and the life you’re living are just a few of the profound messages provided throughout this practical, creative resource. The guide also includes helpful information on bad habits to avoid, finding supportive people, explaining job loss to children, planning ahead, getting through holidays, improving surroundings, new family roles, and making transitions. For anyone that has quit their job, been fired, or laid-off-this book has a thoughtful approach on how to keep it together and survive.”


To order your copy, simply click on the title of the book wherever you see it in this post, and you’ll be taken to the page where you can place your order. Be a good neighbor and get The Unemployment Survival Guide for someone you know who could benefit from this book.
