A long article in Pacific Northwest Magazine by Claudia Rowe hit a chord. Her focus was on reinventing yourself as a way of dealing with this crummy economy. Ms. Rowe wrote about those who have built their careers on their strengths; trained all their lives to get where they are, only to see the rug pulled out from under them. And left bereft, anguishing over the loss of their identity, career and livelihood.
I really believe I am on the right path–helping folks look at their current “traititudes” (my coined term for a blend of attitude and traits), access ones that need honing and push that self-starter button, thus reinventing themselves.
Are you reinventing yourself? Please share your stories so we can all learn.
