Robin Crawford took a risk after getting laid off from Corporate America one too many times.
Since 2009, she’s worked to carve a space for herself in the crowded field of pet care as owner of Dogma Dog Care in Smyrna, AJC reporter Rosalind Bentley writes.
Crawford, 50, got laid off from her job of 21 years at IBM as an executive in training and development in 2001, Bentley reports. In the following years she was laid off twice more, from senior management positions at WellPoint Health Networks and Coca-Cola.
In a down economy, when it seems you’ve done everything right and you still can’t catch a break, you might have to gamble if you want to work, Bentley writes. That’s what Crawford did.
Have you gambled by starting a business recently? What happened?
Or have you gambled by pushing your career in a completely new direction?
