Their failure-to-launch 30 year old son had refused to leave their home. They had even offered him money to get started somewhere else. He remains jobless.
The New York Post reports that he has started transferring his belongings from the parental home to a storage facility he has been renting.
Now that Michael has been pushed out of this comfort zone he may have become open to coaching about how he could make a living - and his way in this world. Here is my book, free to read, on outsmarting a comfort zone Download Over50OutsmartingYourComfortZone.
My specialty in career coaching is the over-50 segment. They include both displaced professionals and those who are employed or self-employed who sense their career is stalled. Here is the backgrounder on my services Download BACKGROUNDERJaneGenovaCoaching.
However, I have a hunch I can help Michael help himself. When I was also 30, my first career path had disappeared. After investing years studying for a Ph.D. in Linguistics and Literature, the market for college professors in those disciplines had collapsed.
In the eyes of the world the winner I had been was perceived to be an all-time loser. The suffering was intense. A medical doctor who was doing a residency in a rural hospital took the time to help me help myself. Since then I have had three other career changes.
I am offering Michael free coaching, for as long as he finds it useful. He can check out the chemistry by contacting me at email@example.com. Since I am based in northeast Ohio, we can meet in person in Upstate New York. I feel his pain. It was mine.
