Laid Off? Looking for Change? Running a Business?

If any of those describe you, we’re here to help!

I started this site because when I got laid off in October of 2017, I didn’t know what to do next. Like, literally. Should I go back to work? Buy a franchise? Consult? Cut back on work hours and volunteer more? I searched the internet for answers, but they were scattered all over the place. I could never find one place to help me with answers to all those questions, let alone also help me with my emotions, or the emotions of those around me.

If you aren’t sure what to do now, you might want to start with our advice timeline. There is a lot to think about, and we have some checklists and longer articles to help you get started. Some might want to start with our Thriving section, where we lay out ideas on how to handle your emotions or finances. Others may want to get right into the running your business or your job hunt. Anyone laid off should apply for unemployment.

If you have feedback, or questions you want us to address, or just want to share your stories, we can be reached at ideas@laidoffbetteroff.com.

Good luck in your journey, and have a wonderful day.
