Chapter 11. Pink Slip Blues > Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

As we mentioned at the beginning, getting your pink slip might be the best thing that ever happened to you. It may be your opportunity to finally do what you really love or even to work from a home office. If you find yourself at this crossroads, it is a terrific time to take inventory of your skills and talents.

Schedule a meeting with yourself and clear out a few quiet hours in a place where you can think and take some notes. During the weekdays the public library or even the cafés at Barnes & Noble or Borders are wonderful places to sit uninterrupted and brainstorm. Allow yourself the time to think freely and creatively about the kind of work or careers that you're most interested in. The added bonus of a library or a bookstore is that you can prowl through books, directories, and magazines to get more information. Try to come away with at least five jobs or businesses to pursue.
