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.  

Tori Paide

She was working in international development in downtown DC, when stress and anxiety made her redefine how she was running her life. A trip to an acupuncturist changed her outlook - and her career path. She decided to moonlight as a personal chef to make ends meet while taking acupuncture classes full time.

Those skills led her to creating her wellness center, a move Tori calls "a dream come true".
