‘Creating a meaningful future’
A friend contacted me the other day and said that she needed to find work a couple of days a week as her super was meagre to say the least. Although she also had a part pension she needed just a little extra so she could afford the odd ‘luxury’. By ‘luxury’ she was referring to the occasional cup of coffee with a friend. She was also terrified that her rent could be increased at any time. I asked about her background, skills and if she had a resume. She replied that she hadn’t worked for about 7 years, didn’t have a current resume and that her skills were rusty. She also thought that her old job was now obsolete and wondered if she was too old to change course and upskill. I asked her what role she could be interested in pursuing. I had moved into writing, workshops and coaching as I love writing and enjoy the involvement and interaction of the other activities. But where to for my friend?
