Every superhero has an origin story. While I’m far from super, this is my story.
I’m 25 and have been laid off three times because a company is downsizing and/or closing it’s doors. Each time this happens I try to pivot to keep it from happening. (obviously my success hasn’t been great). I went from a Fortune 500 company, to mid-level company, to a micro-company where we all fit at one lunch table. Shit happens I guess.
I’ve always wanted to work for myself. So when my boss sat me down to let me know that as of January 4th, 2019 I would no longer have a job, I pretty much knew what I had to do. Luckily she gave me a really big heads up, and is a huge supporter of mine so I wasn’t blindsided.
