Not too happy...

I am not too happy today.

I just found out that one of the companies I do chair massage for twice a month has filed bankruptcy. This directly impacts me, of course, because that is about $400 of my monthly income down the tubes. But just as importantly, I have been working for these people for 7 years now, and they are my friends. None of them saw this coming, (for goodness sake, they had just moved into a new building!) and the HR department changed their contracts at the 11th hour to make it so their benefits are terminated...DONE. I feel so badly for all of my friends, and also for my own business. It's just no good, I tell you. Just goes to show that the big corporations are not always the safest to work for...

Sorry to hear this.

What a wonderful idea. I would love to have a therapist come by and do a chair massage at our office. There are only 3 of us though.

Ask for some referrals and maybe you'll get a great break.

My husband once lost a job suddenly. There is just no way to prepare for that.

Reggie - I'm already on it, and have made some phone calls to existing clients.

Kathy - I know you understand!

Mary Helen - It sucks!

Snowman - No worries, Neil doesn't hang here! But I would like to point it out to him!

Logzie - When one door closes, another opens. I'll be fine!
