this reemployment blog I’ve been talking about strategies for helping exiting employees
get back to work more quickly, and generally the focus with a reemployment strategy
is helping them find a new job working for someone else. However,
an increasing number of unemployed individuals are branching out on their own, taking
control of their own destinies and reemploying themselves in their very own business
venture. New entrepreneurs were recently
highlighted in a Fox News blog called “Recipes
and we highlighted some other great examples of the American entrepreneurial spirit
in our Unemployment Blog “Unemployment

innovative culture within our own businesses is a good start. Engaging
existing employees in finding new ways to do things can get their juices flowing so

the economic outlook of your community. New
business ventures lead to new jobs.
