It’s not how you fall, it’s how you get up.
You’ve probably heard that said before…and this week is showing us how true that is.
Over the past 12 months, we have seen many great radio people ‘let go’ from their jobs. Full-time jobs that helped create a home, a career and friendships. Some of those careers lasted over a decade or more before being ended.
It’s so difficult after that length of time to ‘start again’. The only difference is that this time, you have experience in your pocket. To all of the radio people freelancing and ‘filling-in’ this week, we send respect and admiration.
To those who are sending out demos and CVs – total respect.
To those on-air for the main act – respect.
To those worried about the future – respect.
Radio has always been a tough business. This past week, three of our clients ‘lost’ their job…and two started new ones! “Swings and roundabouts”. If you feel that you have more to offer, go with your instinct and give it your best shot. If you feel it’s too difficult to start again, take a deep breath and have a think about what is important in your life.
We respect you for all you have done so far.
