Even in this booming job creation and growing economic environment, many companies face down-turns and cut-backs.

If you’re a longtime listener, or even if you’ve listened to just a few episodes, you probably already know that the core of all of this is to be prepared and to be proactive so that in the event you need to make a change you know how to navigate that process with grace, dignity and foresight.
