Excerpt

While traveling with Chrissy—my wife and best friend for more than thirtyeight years—to appear on our first Dr. Phil show, she mentioned, as a fan of Dr. Phil, she had noticed that he often shared the books his guests had written. She said that because one of the themes of the show would be about finding a job, it would have been ideal for me to have written a book about all the things I had learned in my thirty-one years of finding people jobs. You are now holding that book.

When I first received the call to appear on the Dr. Phil show, the producers were preparing an episode called “Going for Broke.” the major theme of this episode related to how easily two-income families in America can go broke. the show featured four middle-class couples that, for various reasons, were in or getting close to bankruptcy. Sudden job loss and/or mismanagement of money had sent some of them from combined incomes of $60,000 to $80,000 a year to the brink of bankruptcy.

One of the four couples appearing on the show was Amy and Jeff Mills, who had moved from Denver, Colorado, to Austin, Texas, after Jeff struggled for eighteen months to regain employment in his industry. Amy and Jeff, along with their four young children, moved in with Amy’s sister, her husband, and two children who lived in a 1,600-square-foot house in Austin. Although Austin’s economy had been hit hard after the high-tech bust of the 1990s, supportive family members were there and Jeff was optimistic that he could find gainful employment. Austin’s economy happens to be one of the toughest in Texas by virtue of its primary dependence on high-tech manufacturing. When high tech slows down in Austin, so does Austin’s entire economy.

You cannot say Jeff didn’t try. He gets high marks on creativity for one of his unique tactics: renting a flatbed truck, filling its bed with a portable home . . .
