Together, we can change the world -- one job at a time!

I'm asking for your help to spread the word by funding the publication of my book, "My Unemployed Life". (http://bit.ly/1gTIwjz)

In the book I recount the emotional roller coaster of unemployment including bankruptcy, foreclosure, and how I re-branded myself through social media in spite of the recession. 

The book also provides practical step-by-step advice on how to overcome many of the obstacles candidates face in today’s competitive job market.

No matter who you are, unemployment has touched your life somehow. Maybe you were laid off and haven't been able to find work for months or years. Maybe your spouse, you mother, or your neighbor

The ultimate Ah-ha moment, I received a LinkedIn message from my former boss (the same who had to lay me off in 2008) asking if he’s in ‘My Unemployed Life’ 

Fundraising is no easy task. Please share the link below to your Facebook wall, and if possible, a small donation would mean a lot too! http://bit.ly/1gTIwjz
