Hello everyone. This is not the post that I was scheduled to write for today. Readers of my book ‘How to TurboCharge Your Business with a Blog’ will know that I have a methodology to generate an on-going stream of content. Last week I read about high street retailer Jessops going into administration and then yesterday HMV. These two events caused me to change tack and I want to reach out to those people who are now facing redundancy at Jessops, HMV and elsewhere.

1. Dreams – Blow the cobwebs off your dreams. Remember your dreams? Those that you had in your youth before you were living a month to month existence. Okay, so maybe you won’t now become Arsenal’s best striker but redundancy can be an opportunity to do what you really want to do rather than what you settled on doing to pay your bills.

2. Hope – The Return of real hope – Not hope that you can get through this month or the year but genuine hope that you will feel excited again and wake each day keen to find out what the day has in store – just as you did as a child.

3. Signal – If you are looking for a sign this is it! It takes courage to start something new or follow a new path. Maybe this is the ‘push’ that you needed.

4. Happiness – Don’t chase money – chase happiness. This is a fundamental life lesson that you need to learn and if you go about it in the right way happiness will lead to a greater sense of fulfilment, success and money too. Need an example? – here’s one lady who set up her own company after she was made redundant from her marketing job. Her picture is above and her name is Michelle Mone

5. Work and life Does your work/life balance need re-booting? Were you working all hours and neglecting your friends and family? This is an opportunity to correct that and be present in the lives of the people who matter most to you.

If you have been or are about to be made redundant I want you to see it as an opportunity. Your mindset is very important.
