Questions and StoriesCategory: QuestionsWhat Would Happen if You Were to Lose Your Job?
Gareth White asked 3 months ago

Not something that anyone wants to think about but with the way of the world at the moment for some people the possibility is ever increasing that they will lose their job.
I feel although not a nice topic it would be foolish to not consider the impact it might have and ties in the question I asked last week about if you have an emergency fund.
May be worth taking 5 mins to think about the repercussions that losing your job will have on you and your family. Asking how long can we survive on our savings or other forms of income. It may also prompt you to take action in the form of saving whilst you can or getting a new source of income such as LuckScout.

That would be a terrible thing for me and all my family ;friends etc. Losing my job will make me feel bad, unhappy and fearful because I don’t have any other source of income by the time I’m talking. It would be very difficult for me to make a living, cover my expenses ,take care of myself and my family, solve out my problems. I don’t expect it to happen now.

Try and start saving at least a 10 percent or less because the day you will be chased away from the job even your wife will chase you or get another man who has cash.if you cannot save any thing it’s not a job pray your company does not fall or you make a mistake which can lead to dismissal.

g you ask all the great questions.
I have thought about this and I have been in that situation about 8 years ago and my children were very young and still at school. I still have one child at school and she finishes this time next year.
As I am getting on in my years and in my profession they are looking at young people I would more than likely go out either try seasonal work in this great country as I have always thought it would be great to work in our regional areas. I could go and work for myself by mowing lawns and cleaning up gardens as gardening is one of my releases in life. I would certainly continue trying to find an online niche and try and do some online marketing and I would certainly love to stay here in the Luckscout Club as I enjoy the conversation and the single drive of all the members.
Given the friendships that are possible I am not sure if we are able to make contact outside of the site and if anyone would like to that would be great.

For the majority of us it will have a huge damage to the stability of our family. That is why it is so much important that we find a way to establish a secure and reliable source of income other than the income that we got from our current job. But beyond this, it is also important that we reflect more on our current job. Are we doing what we are doing just for the sake of income we got? It is the question that we need to clarify for ourselves. If the answer for this question is yes, then we need to decide to be financially free and have another source of income beside our job.

I’ll be devastated! The chances of finding another job in this pandemic are almost nil. Assuming that you’ll receive a retrenchment settlement, you use it to start an easy to start and scalable business and invest a portion of it. If you are lucky, you come across something like the LuckScout Club, you join it and make the best of the opportunity.

I take it cool, humble myself and start a new life.i can use my little savings to start a small shop,or a saloon,as I look for another job meanwhile doing my online business.

It’s something unimaginable at this time. I’m very dependent on my salary for all my expenses. If in case it’s happen for real , I will start looking for a new job . Sure the new salary not enough but sure enough for food and daily expenses. I will start cutting all unnecessary expenses to save money and live within my mean .

Losing your job is not a good new to expect especially for those whom the job is their source of income. I will be in trouble if I lost my job, unable to take care of myself and my family, I can’t imagine how will I cover my expenses.

Hi gwhite. It’s a terrible experience to lose a job, to be precise, I was a victim of this recently. It can be the worst experience that one can go through, I mean waking up in morning without a program, you can’t buy home necessities, etc. It’s  nerve wrecking really. But, one needs support, a supporting family, friends, etc. Then, you pick up yourself and start afresh. But, this is the time when a positive mindset plays a crucial role in one’s life, because it’s one those low moments in life.

No one would like to find his/her self in such position but you should bear in mind that someday I will leave the job either on own or sacked or laid off. You should be making serious plans to avoid that dreadful day

Following on from my earlier answer let us see what happens at the end of this week and what the top earners are paid by the Team and that may be a different answer to above. I could handle doing this and other online activities as it leads to a great work life balance.

Losing job is not a good new for anyone specially those who have one Job and don’t have another business aside. I’m part of those people, I don’t expect it to happen but if so nothing will happen, I will stay positive, expecting to have another one as soon as possible. I will not be the end of the world.

Being jobless is a little bit difficult to life, I will manage to get another job even if I don’t like this job, but for my family and myself I will do anything to survive.

It depend on what you do or where you are working. Many companies will pay off workers whom they lay off duties, in other words sacked. If I find myself in such situation, I will use the money I received from the pay off to start up a business.

It is certainly a worrying prospect for the majority of people and one we should spend time thinking about and ensuring we have a back up as nothing is certain these days

One should have several streams of income to survive in this hard economy. If you don’t have other sources of income, then you may be out of job in future.  Having your own business puts you above the employed.

I also lost my job and found it hard to find work again because of this pandemic. Finally I worked freelance and joined this Luckscout club. I really hope for this club, and 2021 will be the best year for me and for you.

I will find it difficult to seat up again, and being in the position of business I was before, will be some how hard for me. And I won’t be financially buoyant like before

Hi, Ad.
 
You will eventually find the best job for you. Or your current job will turn out into the job that you have always dreamed of if you take it seriously. Please don’t blame the pandemic. Maybe it brings you a seed of fortune. You just need to fertilize those seed with your hard work and optimism.

Hi, Kenneth.
 
What do you mean by lost in thought? I think curtailing unnecessary expenses should be done even when you are not losing your job.

Yes Mr Jackson, it is not something that is good to happen to someone, it can demibilize you and make you loose hope if you don’t have faith in God.
