I learned that redundancy was not the end of the world and that in fact life only improved after it.
When I was first made redundant I did not take it very well. I was an emotional mess. But one of the good things my company did was to provide counselling to me and also a wonder device to help me get back on my feet teaching me how to interview, write CV’s and everything else.
I was lucky and got my first fixed term contract before I had left my present job and then from there I got contract after contract. I was never down for more than about 3 months and that was in the quiet time of Christmas and New Year in New Zealand.
I learned that been made redundant as really just the start of greater things. So this time when my Husband was made redundant we have both grabbed it with both hands and he is creating his own business and web products and I have jumped into the Empower Network and doing these wonderful blogs everyday. Something I would never have imagined even last year.
