Hello all, this is my first blog ever.
I really wanted to begin and focus on the reason and the way that got me here,
Posting this blog.
It began with a plain email I got from my manager at work.
It was morning, at one of the branches of the company I used to work in,
Somewhere at the very north of Israel, at the beginning of the corona spread.
After almost ten years of work, day in day out, almost 12 hours a day, including Fridays.
No phone call, No whatsup message, but a plain template email.
“Dear employee – due to situation, you are going to a forced vacation from work”
Without payment of course and without any clarity if I’ll ever be called back to work.
I felt the disappointment through my body , it was painful.
I called my wife and told her, I will figure out a way that I could work from home during this period, I really didn’t know how or even where to start.
Eventually , they fired me, however, I already begun something by that time, so the fear I felt was bearable .
I wanted to share with you that experience, so if you are in the same or similar situation,
There is a way I found to leverage what is happening around us, and to continue support my family.
I’ll continue in my next post,
Have a great day, Tamir.
