Beat the Monday Blues….Some good news…

Thousands of businesses, still to be born, thousands of jobs still to be made,
thousands of inventions, still to be found, thousands of inventors,still to be crowned,
thousands of creators, still to create, thousands of ideas, still to be conceived,
thousands of dreams, still to be dreamed, thousands of friendships, still to be weaved,
thousands of talents, still not being used, thousands of skills, with nothing to do,
thousands of jobs lost on the way, thousands of people feeling the strain,

At TheEmployable we are under no illusion on how tough the economic and employment market currently is. However, as we are battered each week with bad news stories; youth unemployment, redundancies, business closures, and financial difficulties, TheEmployable still feels a sense of optimism that we can all help to make things just a little bit better. Maybe you have a really good idea that you have never developed, maybe you can empower someone to come up with ‘the next big thing’, maybe some of our ‘top tips’ may encourage you to try again, maybe you could pass an article onto one of your friends that you know it might help…
