About the book:

Conquer your career crisis in style! Don't be "victimized" by job instability or a career shake-up! In this book you will learn the stories of people like you who responded successfully to abrupt or planned career-change events.

In today's volatile working world, it is in your best interst to keep your skills transferable. These narratives depict those who have done that and came out on top. The professionals described in the book have all landed on their feet after being laid off, fired, burned-out, bored, downsized, or forced into an early retirement that was too early.

Some of the people cleverly got rehired at their former employers or within their same industries. Others determined ways to land in a new career field or profitably apply their skills down a new occpuational avenue. Still others learned, through various methods, how they could launch a small enterprise which built on the connections, knowledge, and resources that they already possesed. You will learn about the origninal inspirations which gave them the courage, vision, and resources to act and succeed.

The book's lessons come to the reader in an easy-to-read narrative format that describes each individual's career/work situation. This method instructs readers in a manner that is much more interesting and effective than a boring "how to" list of information. The many nuggets of wisdom can be helpful to readers from most any occupational background or situation.

The book features people from teaching, medicine, law, corporate office, library science, broadcasting, military, executive, finance, information technology, sales, trade, clergy, and other backgrounds. Their transitions will inform and inspire readers to seek and find occupational options which can work in their own lives.

Included in the book is the Twenty-Minute Career Tune Up which enables readers to develop a quick snapshot of their occupational strengths and interests. That tool, which is used by the author in his private career coaching summits and individual career consulting, can help direct and focus the occupational improvement efforts of most people. It uses a guided brainstorming process that forces one to "drill down" and come up with strategic yet practical goals and plans. Also included are 101+ web sites that were of strategic help to the book's subjects.

If readers are amidst or considering a career, job, small business, or work-place transistion, Laid Off & Loving It! can be a very practical tool.
