I have been unemployed for more than five (5) years. So like Bob Marley would say, I have felt it and so I know it. I have felt the sting and scourge of unemployment and I KNOW, in a very real and intimate way, what being unemployed feels like, especially after working as a senior professional, all the feelings that come over you in that condition and what you need to do to take yourself, your loved one or your friend out of that dreadful place.
In this book, I have shared with you some of my own personal, unemployment challenges and stories, in order to encourage you as you meet with similar experiences along your unemployment journey. Additionally, at the end of each of the 15 chapters, I have shared with you some precise strategies/activities that you can immediately effect in order to move you in the right direction towards recovery from unemployment.
In chapter 15 (Survivor Strategy 15), I have shared with you some sound financial advice that I have separated out into two parts: financial advice that you can use while you are unemployed and saving & investment advice that you can use after you find new employment or begin generating steady income from your own new business(es).
The financial advice that I am sharing with you comes from my cumulative financial qualifications and experience that I have gained over the years, in my capacity as:
1. An M.B.A graduate in International Finance; earned with distinction.
2. A Portfolio Manager at a prominent Mutual Fund Company, where I successfully managed US dollar, equity, bond, pension and sinking funds.
3. An Associate Professor in Finance & Business at a renowned University.
4. A home mortgagor who has transacted with a commercial bank, both as an employed person and an unemployed person.
5. A private investor in both money market and capital market instruments.
In this book, I offer you a real, down-to-earth perspective of what being unemployed feels like and how you, your loved one or your friend can successfully survive unemployment and move on to rebuild your life and finances.
