Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Across the continent we seemingly hear of layoffs and unemployment more often than not. This economy is shedding jobs, and whether people across North America are in despair or hoping for better times, a new book will certainly provide some useful advice, humour and tips on how to turn the page and begin that new, sometimes unexpected, and perhaps timely chapter. The book is called Thank You for Firing Me! How to Catch the Next Wave of Success After You Lose Your Job. It’s got information on how to deal with losing your job, how to reposition yourself for a new career, a look at emerging fields, and practical tips on what to do when looking for a new job. Along the way there are many anecdotes from folks who’ve taken their loss and turned it into a positive. Kitty Martini joins me now. She is a writer, entrepreneur, comic, and she’s been fired. The website for more is www.thankyouforfiringme.org. The book is published by Sterling. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Kitty Martini; Good morning, Ms. Martini.
