Everyone Needs One

Need a Job?

Who doesn’t? As a recent graduate, I’ve been interviewing. I haven’t found the right fit yet but thankfully I’m young and there are many options available to me. This afternoon I was driving down Santa Monica Boulevard and ran into Mr. Michael A. Bender (pictured above). After reading his sign, I decided that I needed to hear a little bit more about his life.

Michael started two of his own businesses and ultimately managed his own apartment buildings. In the peak of his career he employed 93 people. Despite his entrepreneurial efforts, he was not immune to these tough economic times. After 40 years of success Michael found himself out of business and without work. Now, at the age of 71, he’s taken to the streets with a sign and copies of his resume in his pocket, ready for anyone who’s willing to take a look and a chance on someone with so much experience.

If anyone out there has any suggestions for Michael, be they big or small, please email  thankfulforamillion@gmail.com.

Give before you ask. Thankful~

Now back to my own hunt (:
