Many of us equate job loss with failure. There’s even a book on the topic called When Smart People Fail. It’s especially difficult to shake the failure feeling when someone with a fraction of your qualifications is now performing the job you used to do. Plus, every time you get passed over for a position for which you are perfectly qualified, you experience an additional hit to your self image and your confidence. The failure persona grows ever larger.
But before you start crying or drinking, hold on . . . this Friday’s presentation will show you the Up Side of Failure. Lots of smart and successful people have weighed in on this topic, and we’ll share with you the best of what they have to say. By the time you leave the meeting, you should feel as though you rule the world.
This Friday will be a two-fer: Following the regular meeting, from noon till around 1:00 pm, LPJC board member and financial planning expert will offer a presentation on Job Changes and Your Retirement Assets. This is not a sales presentation; it’s an overview of the pros and cons of your financial options.
As always, the meetings are free. All are welcome.
