CAN YOU HELP? Redundancy. Interviewees needed

CAN YOU HELP?   Redundancy, job insecurity and the rising cost of living is a worry for ALL of us.  I’m starting my 3rd self-funded self-published book – a children’s version of Underspent – focusing on how children/families cope financially after a redundancy, reduce their household debt and manage financial stress at home.  I would LOVE to interview 5 – 10 people in Brisbane or regional Queensland by phone/email for max 10 minutes. Pref families who’ve experienced a redundancy. All answers ANONYMOUS. Please share.


If you don’t want to chat – redundancy is a very sensitive issue and very emotional – but you want to be involved you are very welcome to email me  rachel (at ) cyclingrachelsmith (dot) com

All answers will be completely anonymous.
