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.
