Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?

Take time off if you can afford it. Even a month. And I mean like staycation, see friends and family, do hobbies. Absolutely refrain from looking for another job for at least a month. You will be happy you did, I promise.

It’s going to be okay, it happens to all of us. (Happened to me twice.) Give your self an assigned period of time to take a breath, maybe two or four weeks. Then on the assigned day, get your portfolio together and tell everyone you know you’re looking for a job.
