Slow Love: Can You Lose Your Job and Find Happiness?


Does losing your job ever have a silver lining? It did for Dominique Browning, author of 'Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put on my Pajamas and Found Happiness.' Browning was editor-in-chief of Conde Nast's House & Garden magazine. When the magazine folded in late 2007, Browning was told she had four days to pack up her office.

What followed was a time of self exploration where she was able to slow down, examine her priorities, reinvent herself, and create a new and more meaningful lifestyle. Browning's journey offers many life lessons that can help others in career transition find more fulfilling career paths.
