Posts Tagged ‘unemployed’

It’s been sad hearing about the thousands of good people across the country losing their jobs due the economic downturn.  But it got too close to home this week.  My sister, a computer programmer with 30 years of experience, lost her job this week due to corporate “reorganization.”   She is a couple years older than me, and honestly I don’t want to even think about starting over again at my age.  But she needs to.  Sure, she got a severance package (not nearly long enough, and the feds took 75% in taxes) and will collect unemployment.  But then what?  With hundreds of thousands of people on unemployment and looking for work, will she find another job?  That’s hard to predict.

What I do know is, by coincidence or fate (?), her husband joined our Trilogy family 2 weeks ago.   He is now his own boss with his own business (McCaslandHealthShop.com), with proven products that help people and pets live healthier lives, and a great training program so that he can jump right in and get started.   Trilogy is a 10-year old, debt-free company, whose business has actually increased in 2009.  People who are real animal lovers still want the best for their companions, and know and trust Life’s Abundance pet foods and all the Trilogy products.  I wish the very best for my sister and brother-in-law in their new business, and know they have what it takes to succeed.

If you are in the same situation, I feel your pain.   If a door was closed, maybe it’s time to open another one.   Look at your old job – were you happy?  If not, look for what truly makes you happy and go for it!   Many people have said losing their job was the best thing that happened to them -it forced them to take a risk and try something new. 

If you are an animal lover like me, and like to talking to people about their pets, maybe Trilogy is the answer for you.  We have a team that’s ready to help you succeed too!
