Having experienced both a layoff and a firing myself, I can assure you that it can happen to you – and it won't be fun. No matter how prepared you think you are, you really aren't. The emotional and financial toll it will have on you and your family will be unexpected and huge. Especially if you think you will be replacing the job you just lost in the next few months.

Being Fired or Laid Off

At the time of my last firing, we had 1 year of living expenses saved in the bank. We felt confident that I would start my business and all would be well. This was late 2007. I officially started my business June of 2008. We had gone through a few months worth of living expenses, but weren't worried. I had customers, good relationships with business professionals and knew that all would be well because I was on the right track to have a successful business.

Then, September of 2008, the collapse of the financial industry in the US happened. The phone stopped ringing. The customers stopped responding and it wasn't looking good for me and my family.

But, I was well-positioned to be able to ride out the recession.

First, I didn't have any hope of finding a job. Those were non-existent in my area and in my industry were very difficult to find.

Second, my business was virtual with very low overhead. The only expenses were internet access, cell phone and land line, and a few online research tools membership fees.

Third, because of one and two I was able to focus on making money with my business. And I did…and it brought us through the recession (which I don't believe is over) and has us positioned well to achieve my ultimate goal: be location independent by renting the house and traveling the country in a luxury RV.

Are You Ready

I'd like you to take serious stock of your current situation. What does your bank account look like? Is there enough there for you to pay your living expenses for 1 year? If not, what assets do you have to sell for cash so that once the bank account get close to $0 you can feed your family?

Think about this: if you haven't been laid off yet, you will be. If you have been laid off at least once since 2008 (and there are many that I know that have been laid off 2 and 3 times), then chances are slim you've recovered financially and are struggling. Which means you're afraid of the next lay off or firing.

  1. Nicely done! I my industry (executive search), we watch these trends carefully. It’s always heartbreaking to talk to someone who “never saw it coming.” Devastating for people who are unprepared.

    Thanks for this post. Excellent!

  2. Excellent post. Being in the executive search biz, it’s hard to get the calls from people that “didn’t see it coming” and weren’t prepared.

    Really good read!

  3. You are so right Charlene. We all need to take control of our destiny’s and decide for ourselves how much money we will make. Rely on ourselves rather than relying on an employer to keep us housed and fed…
