Should we be foolish? A sensible approach!
Coping with Unemployment

Thank you for firing me!

When you lose your job, it can hurt, you feel as if you have lost your identity, you have lost your security and off course you know many more people in the organisation who should have been fired before you were! You went to work every day, did what you were supposed to do, put in your hours and then clocked out!


That is actually why I was fired, because in today;s workforce you are not supposed to clock out, you need to eat, sleep and breathe your job. Work life balance is a joke to most employers. There are so many unemployed people clambering for a position, that you are just an expendable commodity. Your education, your experience and your skills are unimportant. There is no loyalty, and there is a corporate acceptance of lying and cheating to get paid. One of the tough things to deal with for me, is that I have high ethical standards, lying to customers is not something that I want to do. I like to sleep soundly at night with a clear conscience. I do not want to have to drink and drug myself to sleep so that I can get through another week of deception.

It is true that I do not have any security, no pension, no benefits, no promotion is time to take stock and find a new way of living. I have used my down time to forge better relationships with my daughters - the most important people in my life. I have set up a vintage clothes business with my daughter Andrea, which has been great fun!

I have retrained and become a certified life coach. I have spent my life teaching, coaching and mentoring people. I am actively looking for clients who need my help.

These last few months, I have worked with 2 friends of mine on setting up new businesses, one is a phone room and one is marketing SVS a cleaning product and I am so grateful for these opportunities.

My aim in life is to help others and always to do the right thing.  I hope to coach many people through life's dramas and traumas so that we can all live happier and more fulfilling lives.
