Often we go through life with the blinders on, we have that secure feeling that if I just do everything right it cannot possibly happen to me.
Well guess again, it can and does happen.
I discovered this in a tweet today by Chris Brogan, and boy did it strike a cord.
Just recently I stopped by where I was employed years ago to visit with some of the people I used to work with.
Just like in the video above HR had walked in and bam they where all gone. And I do mean the entire shop was let go without warning.
I’m sure if you’re reading this it may have happened to you or someone you know. And, none of us can ever be fully prepared for it.
Still I found it inspiring that they have moved on and life goes on. When you stop and think about it, years ago an employer could do this and get away with it because it was not common knowledge.
Today, with the internet people know.
What can you do to lesson the impact should the axe fall on you?
