Record numbers of Americans are receiving layoff notices from companies they have come to know and depend on for making a living and paying the bills. This book refers to those growing ranks of the disenfranchised as “Singing the Blues.”

Employment opportunities for Americans are in an unpredictable state. Unemployment has remained high for the past few years, and both younger and older workers are being hit hard by lack of job opportunities. At the same time, the global economy is shaky, financial markets are in turmoil, and technology is continuing to replace laborers in many job sectors. Larger shifts are impacting workers globally, nationally, regionally, locally and personally.

Some futurists, when writing about the emerging job market, suggest that more people will be self employed in the future, as contractors who provide products and services back to the same businesses that – perhaps – once employed them. More workers will become self-employed as experts, consultants, trainers, coaches, performers, inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs.

No More Singing the Job Loss Blues takes that mission further by helping readers:

• Identify marketable skills, talents and abilities.
• Use intuition to envision a new business or get insight for a next career step.
• Develop persuasive skills for selling, marketing or promoting one’s products, services or expertise.
• Turn your job loss and work experience into a career gain!

For the Unemployed, Underemployed or Unhappily-employed Reader

Marketable Talents

Recognizing your marketable skills, talents and abilities is followed by your efforts to put that expertise into a form that will appeal to customers, end users, brokers, agents and others who will make decisions about what you offer in the marketplace.


Intuition is a gift to every living human being. You are fully equipped to receive answers to your prayers, responses to your questions and solutions to your problems. You are more likely to access your intuition if you know how to ask and receive. Having a vision, word or gut feeling about what comes next is just one step in turning your job loss into a career gain.


Persuasion in its most useful form is a highly refined skill that leaves both the persuader and the persuaded feeling good about a decision Being able to persuade others to hire you, utilize your expertise or purchase your products or services is essential in order to start, survive and succeed in the marketplace.
