Layoff during Difficult Times – the End or a New Beginning?

Just recently I had a discussion with a friend of mine who said that NOBODY would do anything for free in business. Really?

This is certainly not a valid comment for me and for what I believe in.

There is too much complaining, too much blaming and not enough action! I always like to say that I don’t drive the BMW – I am not blaming, moaning and whining. I am a firm believer in taking action and people who know me, can attest that I “walk the talk”!

Please check out the latest article about my commitment for the community and if you know of any laid-off or to be laid-off manufacturing workers in the Toronto area, I would appreciate if you could pass this article on to them!
