We’ve all been there at one time or another. Hit with an uppercut. Laid out. Laid off. Let go from a company and filled with self-doubt. That moment where you wonder “how can I get through this? How can I be the person I know I’m capable of being?” In search of becoming your own best superhero.
Maybe we roll around in self-pity for a bit, but in the end we know we have to inevitably regroup and rejoin the game. We have to use every tool at our disposal to get back up and running. And for some, getting fired can be the best thing that ever happened to them – forcing them to their own true calling.
When we were approached by LinkedIn, we were asked to capture such a story. Lora Poepping used LinkedIn to do more than get back on her feet. She used it to set her on the pathway of her dreams.
Here’s our take – directed by AJ Winslow. Thanks to all who made it possible.
