I want to take a minute to talk about the word "unemployed." If you're one of the more than 15 million Americans who is unemployed at the moment, I want you to listen up because I want you to stop using that word in your vocabulary from this day forward.
Whether you saw it coming or were blindsided, being laid off from your job is a traumatic experience. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Don't crawl under the covers or down seven gallons of ice cream. This isn't the end. It's only the beginning.
