Thank You for Firing Me!: How to Catch the Next Wave of Success After You Lose Your Job

Kitty Martini, Author, Candice Reed, Author . Sterling $14.95 (232p) ISBN 978-1-4027-6956-6

This funny and energetic guidebook for the recently (or repeatedly) fired from entrepreneur and comedian Martini and journalist Reed begins with a sympathetic but no-nonsense plan for picking yourself up after you’ve lost a job, and moves swiftly into the brainstorming and planning necessary to start the next—and more satisfying—career. Readers are challenged to answer the all-important question “What are you passionate about?” and strategize from there with an eye to becoming a self-employed independent contractor. Martini and Reed investigate such potential growth markets as green industries and the Gen Y market as well as the new outcropping of nontraditional jobs for women. Advice on finding community and places to get help and a plethora of resources elevate this cheerful, encouraging book into an invaluable resource. (Mar.)
