I get comments

"I consider myself lucky."

I’ve been following you since your first Downsized blog, and remember thinking to myself: why’s she looking for a job? Clearly she’s got what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

I don’t consider you lucky at all. I consider you in action. In the financial boot camps I run, I get the opportunity to advise people who are out of work or know they soon will be, and lately one of my key pieces of advice: Read Susannah Breslin. Why? Because you’ve taken unemployment by the balls, you’ve not whined, you’ve trekked multiple paths and you’ve used every tool in your tool box.

I know you’ve inspired some of my clients by your transparency and guts. I imagine you’ve inspired thousands of others too. -- Stacey Powell
