In any other field, this might be a questionable thing to brag about, but as an entertainment executive and film producer who started out in the early 1970s, this was business-as-usual in a very tumultuous, fast-paced industry. Ironically, learning how to pivot from frequent job changes and corporate instability prepared me very well for the unpredictable and disrupted 21st century economy.
Many of us in the boomer generation have lost long-standing jobs. Many of us are holding on to the jobs or businesses we have, but feeling challenged, pressured, and unsure about our future. The certainty and smooth sailing that we were promised hasn't materialized - and we know it's not going to. We find ourselves in a time of unexpected shifts in the economy and the world at large, and we're struggling to find a way forward.
I believe there is a way forward for all of us!
