Have you ever worked in an environment so toxic, you just knew you had to get out? But you couldn’t get out…because you needed the job. I’ve been there. Most people have. But there is something you can do about it.
Have you ever said, “I can’t afford to lose this job.” You stayed in a job you hate and it made you absolutely miserable. Maybe that describes you right now. Well, if that is you, I'm here to help.
The fact is that when you are stuck in a job you hate, it is almost impossible to fulfill your purpose and do what you've been called to do.
When you say the words, "I can't afford to lose this job," what you are really saying is: "I have no backup plan." It means your network is ice cold, that your name is not out in the community at all, and that no one has recently reached out to you about a job prospect. (That is the ultimate sign of a warm network and good visibility…when others are constantly reaching out to you about working for them or others)
So, what do you do when you need a new job and your network is as cold as ice? Well, that's what today's episode is all about.
