Repurpose Your Life
“Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start,
anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.”
It started like any other Monday. I had worked both Saturday and Sunday preparing for a meeting with my new boss. She had been on medical leave for several weeks. She asked me to brief her on what transpired in the marketing communications department I led while she was out.
I pulled together a comprehensive report, several visual aids and a short list of items that required immediate action, and headed to her office. As vice president of marketing, I assumed she would use my presentation to update the president later that day.
When I entered the room, she was waiting for me. However, sitting to her right at the guest table was a representative from Human Resources. That’s when I knew I was being fired.
