So you’ve lost your job? Now you are wondering what’s next? How will you pay the mortgage? Millions of women have recently found themselves in this place and are truly frustrated with how they will be able to survive.

I want to share with you that you can not only survive, but also thrive even if you’ve lost your job.  You can start by answering this question, “Did you really love that job or were you there because it provided a paycheck?”  What if this emergency has showed up in your life so that the real you could emerge?

Over and over again, I have witness many of my clients lose their jobs only to discover their real and true purpose in life. And I would like for you to maybe entertain the fact that your job loss could really be  a career gain. You can truly move from being jobless to being joyful if you are willing to follow these three steps:

Decide to stop being a victim. You didn’t loose your life, you just lost a job. Or shall I say a paycheck? You can at any moment replace your paycheck and it can be done relatively quick. You job is not your only source for money and understanding this will move you from being a victim to being victorious.

Use what’s in your hands.  What can you do right now to begin earning some money? Most women would say that they don’t have anything they can do to earn money. But if they spend five minutes with me asking them the right questions, you will discover that you are sitting on several streams of income sources. With the right coach or mentor, you can very easily discover this to be true. Use what’s already in your hand. Take an inventory of the things you do well and then get with a coach to learn how to quickly monetize it.

Make a Bold Move. Once you have stop playing the victim and you’ve discovered what’s in your hand, it is time to make a bold move. Just sitting back planning and preparing is not enough. In fact, you don’t have a lot of time to spend prepping and that is a form  hiding as well. Just get to moving towards asking someone to do business with you. Simply pick up the phone and start to talking. Share what you are doing and don’t forget to ask for the money. Yes!! Ask for the money. You are selling your services and products, not giving them a way.

In closing, I want you to know that you are not alone. There are millions out there who have lost their jobs. But you cannot allow your lost to define who you are and where you want to go. It takes courage to get up and start again. It take tremendous heart to make a decision to go into business for yourself. You have heart and you have courage, so jump and grow your wings on the way!!
