Lost Your Job? Now What! - Book Review

Guest Author - Dianne Walker

I often enjoy books that take the readers on a self awareness journey. Lost Your Job? Now What! The Possibilities are Endless by Terry Kohl is one such book. Lost Your Job? Now What! is a combination of journey, affirmations, resources and even recipes to set you on the path to your next career.

When you’re first laid off or downsized, you probably feel a sense of loss or the world is spinning out of control. You may feel alone and powerless, full of fear with little hope for the future. These negative feelings must be overcome in order to make your next career move. Lost Your Job? Now what! helps you to identify those feelings, take control and move forward. The book takes you on a 12 day empowering journey which becomes a road map to help you get control of your emotions and make steps toward obtaining your dream job. Kohl appropriately entitles this as the “12 Days of Power.

On the first day of the journey, readers are instructed to “take a vacation”. While on this vacation, forget all of your worries including bills or being unemployed. Kohl offers a variety of suggestions including going to a matinee, the zoo or the deli. If your budget does not allow for these types of expenditures, try hiking or another free vacation adventure.

Each day of the 12 days of power provides an activity that helps to focus on a specific aspect of the journey toward finding your perfect job. There are many different activities provided in the book, including networking, resume preparation, phone etiquette, etc. Also included on each day is an affirmation to motivate you to continue on the journey to creating and finding the perfect job.

What I appreciate the most about Kohl is the “at home” conversational attitude that she uses throughout the book. Kohl manages to provide insight and direction without sounding dictating or condescending. Kohl wants all of her readers to feel that they are magnificent and deserving of all the greatness that is waiting to be bestowed upon them.

My favorite section of the book is the Twenty Power Affirmations to Your Perfect Life that she shares with her readers. Kohl also provides a list of websites to provide overall health and wellness to the readers. While Lost Your Job? Now What! is a quick read at only 127 pages, readers will want to take the time to go through the 12 days of power in search of their perfect job.
