What happens when the working mom loses her job? This series will detail steps to work through your emotions, get back on the saddle, and come out on top.
Almost six months ago, I was suddenly laid off from my job of five years. In 18 years of working, I have NEVER been laid off (or fired). In a nutshell, I have ALWAYS worked. So, to say the least I was surprised and in shock.
Unemployment can be one of the most financially devastating, emotionally draining, and patience-creating challenges you will ever endure. However, with faith that this too shall pass, time to process what is happening, and a plan to turn things around, you will succeed again.
I wanted to write this series to address how women process unemployment (differently than men), how moms approach unemployment (differently than fathers), and how women of faith overcome unemployment.
The Working Mom Unemployed series will address:
- Why Did This Happen To Me?
- 5 Step Guide to Surviving a Layoff Financially
- How to Spend Your Days
- Where Do I Go From Here? (A Job Search To Do List)
- 4 Ways to Automate Your Search
- Find Your Way Out: Creative Solutions to Unemployment
- 7 Things No One Told You About Unemployment
