"The New Job Security" by Pam Lassiter (10 Speed, 2002)
"Start now. Actually doing something rather than just thinking about it will uproot job security from the company's domain and move it into yours. What will you do today to begin the transfer? Would you like to check your local business newspaper to learn where contracts have been awarded recently? Would you like to set up a database for managing your contacts? How about joining a committee in a professional association or talking to someone who is working in an industry that might be of interest to you? The choices are endless and often are a lot of fun. The point is to plunge in."
