You're Not Qualified Minisode #2 - Turning A Layoff Into the Opportunity Of A Lifetime You're Not Qualified - A Podcast

    • Arts

Welcome back, Imposters, to the second minisode of the pod! Once a month, the last Tuesday of the month during the YNQ Pod season, myself and a guest will read your stories about imposter syndrome in your own life and how you've overcome obstacles. Maybe you were once actually told you're not good enough or qualified enough for a job or project, or passion you were trying to pursue. I want to hear about your experiences and celebrate you - you can and will overcome anything set in front of you. If you would like to have your email read, please reach out! ynqpod@gmail.com is the place.
Today's minisode features one of my closest friends, Maria Xu. Maria is trained in classical music and was a cellist since the YOUNG age of six years old. She has navigated many a leaps into different avenues of careers, including a layoff, and has landed in tech. Maria and I read an email from a listener who took a layoff and turned it into a 6-figure business venture and she is absolutely killing it.
There's a theme here - layoffs derail your life in many ways. To say they can be an opportunity to grow is a cliche and undermines the impact they have on a person's mental health. But they can be a jumping point to pick the pieces up and become a better version of yourself, and there is possibility in the midst of chaos.
You write the story.
