Like many others, I thought it won’t happen to me, but it did; I was made redundant after receiving a simple termination letter.

The project assigned to me in Dubai got “put to sleep“, pending global economy recovery.

To mark that day, I’m posting a copy of my letter of termination…

…to remind myself (and the reader as well) always not to rely too long on a job…

… and to always work on creating passive income resources to save me from getting another letter like that.

My Termination Letter, a note to self.

Life after a termination letter

Funny enough, this post has become one of the top visited pages of my blog.

Seems many people look for inspiration to terminate other employees.

I’ve also discovered that this page works as an indicator to world economy.

Whenever this page is on high demand, it indicates one thing. More people are about to lost their jobs.

When this page lacks attention and visitors love…

…it sure means the world economy is doing great and people can feel assured about their future.

I believe CNN and Bloomberg should take a hint!

Coming back to my career.

Thankfully, joining the unemployed sector gave me more time to spend with my family.

I was lucky to secure some freelancing jobs that helped pay many bills.

I started to work more on this blog, write more, think more about its future,

to learn more about copywriting and online marketing,

to read many books and watch many eye-opening videos.

It wasn’t all fine and dandy though.

Life in Dubai does not favor the unemployed, specially those with their family and kids.

So go ahead dear reader, take some inspiration for screwing someone’s else life.

May those terminated prosper and shine, and come back to hunt you down.

May the terminated bounce back and terminate the terminators! (Bet you you did not see that coming!)
