I think what’s disgusting me recently, is there seems to be no remorse or empathy coming from the top, in this situation. Yes, they have empathy for the airlines. Where is the fu##ing empathy for the common person affected by this. Your $1000 doesn’t mean sh!t!
I realized that in 2008. So many people lost their houses and banks would rather a house sit empty and literally get destroyed by mold and time then to let people live in them. Fend for yourself my friend. I hope you can rebuild and add another notch to your business lessons learned. I know it is hard to be hopeful now but just look at how many times our president filed bankruptcy....(not a jab at him, just an example)

Losing a job is part of life. I've lost jobs, been fired. Big deal. Go get another one. The bigger problem is people thinking they are too good for certain jobs. Screw that. Go get a job as soon as possible.
Holding out for something better is usually not a good idea. Who really wants to hire somebody sitting around for 8 months. I wouldn't. If they worked at a car wash or delivered pizzas I would be more inclined to hire them for the better job. Getting a holdover job can also lead to networking for a better one. I had that happen once. Told me I was a hard worker and wanted me to go work for them. Eventually I surpassed all those jobs being relentless about circumstances I wanted. Go get a job and there is no time to feel sorry for yourself.

I’ve lost my business already, due to the virus. Took me almost 5 years to build it up. Just expanded it a month and a half ago (mega bills). Everything was going excellent. Until this virus came along. Literally, since a week ago, it hit a wall. Everyone is canceling their bookings — seeking full refunds. Haven’t had one single call for a new booking in 10 days. I usually get 3-5 a day.
40 years old and it looks like I’m moving in with dad 115 miles away. Thankfully, I had some equity in one of my vehicles. Refinanced that so I can live off it for a couple months. Still not enough to pay the bills, though.
I knew my biz would struggle in a slow economy. Also knew I could weather that storm, if it ever came. However, this isn’t slow. It’s non existent.
How is the rest of ATS fairing?
