Over 50’s Redundancy Success Story

I would like to introduce you to Sherri Matthews, she is a writer and fellow blogger. After reading my redundancy success story on my sandrabellamy.co.uk site, she wanted to share her own redundancy success story, with us.

Sandra,

You are inspirational. I too was made redundant twice, both due to office closure. The second time, in June 2011, was at the same time that my then 18 year old daughter was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Like you, at first I was distraught but I realised that I needed to change my life and pursue the one thing I’ve always wanted to do, which is to write. I hoped that by doing so I could encourage and inspire others to change their lives, my message being that it is never too late since this all seemed to happen to me after I turned 50.

I’m now 54 and my life has changed dramatically. I have had some articles published in magazines and when I started my blog in January of this year I had no idea of the community I would find here. I am going to be writing about this and my experiences since that time soon.

Your site is so helpful and encouraging and I wish you every success in all you do  :-)
