Barclays Sheds Another 2100 Jobs (Including Mine)

| January 14, 2009 | 1 Comment

In response to market conditions Barclays shed another 2100 jobs today

The economic recession just got a bit more real for me, as my job was one of the ones to go as Barclays Global Investors reigned back their development activities in the UK. A couple of weeks ago I had been sure my job was safe but recent interactions at work meant that on the day itself it did not come as a surprise.

After some soul-searching, self recriminations and reflection, I really feel quite good about it. I have been given an opportunity to develop my on-line business ideas and expand my knowledge of internet marketing.

For the last few years my income has been almost exclusively all in the ‘E’ sector (employee); now is the time to start trying in earnest to replace it with ‘S’ (self-employed), ‘B’ (business) and I (investor) streams.

I have set myself a ’90 Day Challenge’ to put myself on a path to replacing my income within 12 months.

    sorry to hear about the job, glad to see your positive response however. Please do keep the readers updated on your 90 Day Challenge. Any information on this would be a great benefit to myself and no doubt many of your followers.

    All the best
