Growing homeless problem discussed Sunday

A growing homeless problem is evident in a $10,500 hotel bill racked up by the Interfaith Compassion Ministries which works with the Ole Miss Motel to house displaced persons temporarily.  On Thursday, ICM paid out more than $1,100 toward unpaid rent to help keep families in their home.

A Home Task Force meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday in the conference room at the Oxford Police Department. Anyone wishing to help find solutions is asked to attend the meeting. (October 8, 2010, Page 1A)

      I know they’re saying it’s not all bad news but I feel when we dig deeper into the problems our nation is having with unemployment it is now where near good news. I have had several buddies from university as well as former colleagues who have been laid of from their jobs and they have been working there for over five years. Companies are looking for any way possible to cut costs and keep their business moving today.

      Personally, about a year ago I almost had to lay off several employees at my company. Some of these employees had been with me for over 10 years! I knew I had to make a decision where I wanted my company to go, and as a CEO you only want to go in one direction, up. I decided to call up Action Coach, which is a professional business coaching firm and they helped out tremendously. I am getting away from the point but my business is now doing much better and I did not have to follow suit like most companies today and lay off my employees.

      I am tired of seeing friends, family, and former colleagues laid off. I know things can get better it just takes work from all of us.
