Going for It: Rapid Reinvention

Are you between successes?

I've got a favorite new term that I appropriated from Marshall Brown, the On Success career coach--"between successes." Don't you love that?

In his post recently, a reader asked Marshall what to do about business cards. He's unemployed and looking and doesn't have one, the reader told Marshall.

Then, the columnist set him straight. "First of all, you are not unemployed. You are 'between successes' and your full time job right now is looking for your next opportunity."

So there. If anything happens and you end up laid off, bought out, downsized or fired, don't consider yourself unemployed. You'll simply be between successes. That sounds so much better!
