The 2008 tumult was more than just a time of turbulence for me. I was awakening to my “woo woo” side. But I was also working for a Big Corporation that was failing. I’d jumped on that ship because my own freelance business was sinking in late 2007. Then that Big Corporate ship began to sink. My coworkers and I were furloughed.

Here are the things I know about surviving and turning things around so that you can thrive in times of wild, fast change.
