About the Author:

Kitty Martini is a prolific writer, entrepreneur and stand-up comedian. She has developed and sold four successful businesses and has contributed articles to a variety of magazines. Candice Reed is currently a freelance travel journalist and runs a successful public relations firm, Communication Culture. She has been a ghostwriter for a former president, and has published more than 5,000 business features, personal essays and travel articles in newspapers and magazines.

From Publishers Weekly:

This funny and energetic guidebook for the recently (or repeatedly) fired from entrepreneur and comedian Martini and journalist Reed begins with a sympathetic but no-nonsense plan for picking yourself up after you've lost a job, and moves swiftly into the brainstorming and planning necessary to start the next—and more satisfying—career. Readers are challenged to answer the all-important question What are you passionate about? and strategize from there with an eye to becoming a self-employed independent contractor. Martini and Reed investigate such potential growth markets as green industries and the Gen Y market as well as the new outcropping of nontraditional jobs for women. Advice on finding community and places to get help and a plethora of resources elevate this cheerful, encouraging book into an invaluable resource. (Mar.)
