Jennifer Nielsen - This is How She Did it from Robin Hamilton

Hi, I’m Robin, and I am a journalist who tries to keep her ear to the ground. One topic I’ve covered a lot is the job market.
We all know it’s bad...really bad. But that being said, I have had the fortune of meeting some people who had the wind knocked out of them - only to get back up. They got laid off, or left their jobs on their own will - and decided to turn their bad situation into good fortune.
For the next 10 weeks, you will hear from 10 people - in their own words, about how they were kicked down, and got back up. This is how they did it.
Jennifer Nielsen knew that she was ready for a change when the job she once loved was no longer fun. She says she and her colleagues were either overworked, or were looking over their shoulder, worried their jobs would be gone tomorrow.
Taking a risk, Jennifer left, putting her passion into wine.
