March 11, 2009 ·

We know we’ve been missing for a few months and we haven’t meant to neglect you, but really, we were doing it for you!

Do you think we liked being locked up in a high-rise in downtown LA with a hairy chihuahua and the smell of boiled lettuce? (Don’t ask)


But, we did it for you. We finished writing our book, “Thank You for Firing Me- How to Ride the next wave of success after you lose your job.”

Yep- It’s finished and off to the publishers with a publication date of March 2010.

Until then, we want to help you find a job. Everyone is getting back to work. Britney, the US Government, anyone whose anyone!

We want you to find a job that doesn’t just make the rent payment—which sounds pretty good right now— but a gig that you’ll love.

So check this out:
