There’s nothing like getting laid off to really build your self-esteem. Trust me, I know. Recently even, like for the second time in three years. Yep. At the end of the month I will be a former Sr. Reporter for Brandweek. (“He’s not dead. He’s pinin’ for the fjords.”) Budget cuts came down from on high and I went down with them. It’s the nature of the biz. So if you or someone you know has need of a smart & sometimes funny writer/editor/reporter/analyst/blogger/nice guy, send ’em my way.
