    "Collamer's high-quality e-book, is a compendium of how to manage layoffs " -- Nationally Syndicated Careers Columnist, Joyce Lain Kennedy

    "I cannot imagine a more sensible, complete, user-friendly and inspirational guide than the one Nancy Collamer has just written for any family faced with a layoff. Timely and appropriate, it speaks to every stage of reality - from what to do in the first 72 hours (when you really NEED to hold on to something that feels structured and secure, like a practical 5-bulleted "To Do" list), to developing a financial plan to tie you over, to printing out business cards for your job hunt (who'd think of that?), to sharing the psychological upheaval with your spouse." -- Lisa Roberts of, co-author of The Entrepreneurial Parent: How to Earn Your Living at Home & Still Enjoy Your Family, Your Work & Your Life
