Meet the Author

Gary originally wrote this book 25 years ago after he was fired from his first real job. Luckily, today he’s no longer “on vacation, consulting”; he actually is consulting . . . and president of TLG7, an ad agency. How did he get to be president? Was it ‘who he knew’? Hard work? Being at the right place at the right time? Sleeping his way to the top? All good options. No, he couldn’t find a job, so he did the next best thing: he invented one. Ironically, he chose the one field where being fired by a client is a regular occurrence. He should’ve opened that resume writing service. In addition to being president of TLG7, he is busy co-writing a new book about persuasion called, Stop Hurting Me. I’ll Buy It, and launching an Internet company. Gary’s Internet company, IPTLOCK, is a selective file sharing service that allows people to share ideas with business associates and friends, but not the whole world. www.iptlock.com. Gary is married and lives in Westchester, NY. He is the proud father of two beautiful, intelligent, wonderful children who will soon need jobs.

“j” has never, ever been fired. Okay, once, but that’s not the point. At various points in her working life, she and her freelance friends have been downsized, outsourced, and restructured out of their jobs, and into the exciting world of “I’ll do anything for a buck.” She has waitressed, bartended, sold oil and vinegar at farmer’s markets, posed naked for college art classes, and on one memorable occasion, ghostwrote the memoirs of a Labradoodle. She lives in the Hamptons, where you are not allowed to rent or buy unless you have a least one unpublished novel mellowing in your desk drawer. “j” has two. In her spare time, she stares moodily into the ocean, attempting to look like a tortured artist. When she’s not staring into the ocean, she is at home with her family - a very patient husband, two amazing kids who make her laugh, two dogs (one is the Einstein of dogs, the other is the dumb blonde of dogs), and her 86-year-old mother, who curses like a sailor. As of this writing, they are all looking for jobs.

    Humorous & Insightful! What a great read!

    Being let go or fired can be a pretty scary & painful thing. This book was not only written from a male perspective, but what I find comforting is that it is also from a female perspective. It made me laugh, gave me hope, and offered some helpful advice from those who have been there and learned the hard way not to listen to experts.
