Lagan, Constance Thanks for the Pink Slip: The Upside to Being Downsized, Fired, Let Go, Laid Off, Eliminated, Terminated, Etc. Life Skills- Other,
Other
Whatever your boss calls it, you’ve been fired. Instead of holding the infamous “pity party,” try hosting a celebration bash. After all, you are now FREE to explore new possibilities, perhaps find a job you really could love, finish that screenplay you started in college, join the Peace Corp, or follow your passion into a self-employment venture. Consider the statistic: The unemployment rate ranges between 8 and 9% and that does not include those whose unemployment benefits have run out, those who have not held a job long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits, and the seniors who have stopped looking after being beaten down by ageism. Your chance of finding employment in the current economy is not good. With the assistance of career counselor Constance Hallinan Lagan, this seminar may enable you to transition into the life you have always dreamt about.

Life Skills- Food,
Life Skills- Other
What stops us from following our dreams? What prevents us from living a passionate and fulfilling life? Is it fear? Too young? Too old? Maybe it’s a lack of time or money or maybe is it simply not in the cards for us. No matter what you think the reasons are, we all can have and deserve an amazing life. Using PowerPoint, handouts and motivational speaking, I explore life balance, fears, goals and what they are comprised of, and the importance of being happy and following one’s dreams.
