Publisher Looking For Stories! Were You Laid-Off And Then Started A Small Business With Success?

| February 11, 2012 | Comments (231)

Did you “go ballistic” after being laid-off and start a successful small business instead of looking for a job?

I’m looking for real-life success stories for a book that will be published this summer entitled –“Laid-Off To Launch: Going Ballistic After Being Laid-Off.”

Starting a small business is risky enough, but during these challenging economic times most people would shy away. But I’m looking for spirited entrepreneurs who realized that being laid-off was a blessing in disguise.

Your story is one of courage, faith and perseverance. You faced tremendous obstacles and overcame. You made sacrifices but it was worth it.  I want to hear from you if you match these criteria:

1) You were laid-off between 2008 and 2010

2) You founded a small business instead of getting a job (or while you were looking)

3) Your business is now successful.

4) You can write your story in 2500-3500 words.

5) You can meet the 3/31/12 deadline.

Every entrepreneur has a story. And your story is worth writing, preserving and sharing. Writing is a wonderful way to pass on your unique and valuable life lessons.

If you were laid-off from your job and went ahead and started your own business during the extremely volatile economic times we have been passing through during the past few years and you have not only survived, but thrived then you truly have a message that should be shared!

If you have not written before, here are some questions to get your thoughts going. We want to know who you are, where you are from, where have you been, where you are now, and how did you get there? What was your job? We want to know how you did it. What matters most to you? What did you go through and what kept you going? What obstacles did you face, and how did you overcome them? What have your experiences taught you? What mistakes did you make? If you had it to do over again…would you?

Are you ready to be that honest? If you are, then we would love to hear your story of triumph and success.

Click here to get the details on how to submit your story! The deadline for stories is March 31, 2012.

Did you know that one of the most wonderful benefits of writing your story is that you learn more about yourself? This is a part of your life that when shared, could inspire others to follow in your footsteps.

When I look back on the last two to three years of my life since I was laid-off, I cannot believe it sometimes. I cannot believe that I have lived through some of it. But that tells me a lot about who I am and what I am made of. Now it’s your turn.

If selected for publication in the book Laid Off To Launch: Going Ballistic After Being Laid-Off, your story will be preserved for you, your family, your children and your loved ones. Tell us your entrepreneurial story in 2500 – 3500 maximum words and submit it. It’s easy to get started, and it could be the beginning of another great chapter on your incredible journey!
