Downsize, rightsize, smartsize, workforce reduction, workforce optimization, simplification, reduction in force, also called a “RIF”

No matter how you say it, it all means I don’t have a job. Yip, I was laid off last week, on my eighteenth anniversary. I don’t take it personal, it just worked out that way. It wasn’t a surprise, the company gave us notice and a good severance package. In a nutshell, my company was sold to another and the new owners didn’t need our equipment or employees, just the customer(s).

So now what? I’m not sure. I plan to relax a little, work more on the farm and hopefully create more art. It’s an adventure, that’s for sure.
