Tom, a great reminder never to become complacent! Katy's comments are exactly what I'm going through to improve myself, with the fact my company wants to cut over 20% of our personnel!

As a long time listener this advice of not being the company man has always been one of my tenets. But...unfortunately I fell in the trap once again:
I was just laid off from a high paying position at a small software firm. I busted my ass for them like not other company I've worked for. Only to get the fucking 'axe in the back'.
I took my chances because the money was just too good. I've been burned way too many times Tom. It's time to strike out on my own.
Thank you for the timely podcast.

I appreciate all of the invaluable advice you have given over the years. Thanks to you I have an IRA, a Fuck you fund and an emergency fund.
I also keep my resume hot and ready after I was let go by my asshole manager. I will never be loyal to a business again. I love myself too much.
