Psychic Twins Predict Your Career Future

Let's face it, most of the nation's most prestigious economists were gobsmacked by the nation's employment downturn--they simply didn't see it coming. So what makes the suits any smarter or more reliable than Terry and Linda Jamison, the world famous "Psychic Twins," who predicted the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 1999, and who have been telling me for the past two years that I'd better fasten my seat belt, because we're in for a bumpy economic ride. Did I listen? Well, no. Even though these ladies are my close friends, I'm still a bit skeptical of psychics. The result of my skepticism? I lost 25% of the value of my portfolio, and waved goodbye to some of my best freelance clients. Most of that could have been avoided if I'd followed their advice. If only I would have listened back then. I'm listening now. This is what they're predicting:

When are we going to get a break?

There will be a slow but consistent recovery, with the number of jobs making a marked increase by the end of 2010 and into 2011.


So what should job seekers do in the meantime?

It might be a good time to start your own business, to create a job for yourself, but only if you do your prep and research! We have people coming to us all the time saying, "I'm thinking about starting a business I saw on Oprah, and I want to know how it's going to do." It doesn't take a psychic to figure out that they're going to fail if they haven't prepared a financial plan, a business model, done marketing research, etc. Remember that not everyone has an entrepreneurial archetype.


Any more advice for the budding entrepreneur to succeed in this environment?

Yes -- two things: First, pick a partner who has a different skill set than you do, so you can complement each other. People tend to want to work with someone who is exactly like them, and this isn't a good idea. You need someone working with you who can do all the things you can't, and vice versa. Second, seek out an angel investor. They're out there, but they're being very careful with their money right now, so you have to be very prepared. If you can catch their interest, you know you're onto something.


Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of getting a job faster?

Yes! Cultivate an attitude of generosity, and start giving! This might sound strange at a time when you feel you have very little to give, but you can always give of your time, your wisdom, your encouragement and your compliments. You can mentor. It's karmic law that you get back what you put out there. If you want people (such as potential employers) to be generous with you and appreciate your virtues, you must be generous and appreciative of others.


Will we ever get back to where we were before this mess started?

No, but that's a good thing. The last ten years were all about denial and deception. We were in a downward spiral that finally hit bottom, and now we have to change that by returning to old fashioned values like integrity, kindness and honesty. We can see that at a corporate level, and we can see that in our own homes. An example of this is the people who sit in front of their computers all day, and live to post snarky comments about everything and everyone. They're putting out mean, abrasive energy, and will get the same back. Now if they were making positive, helpful, inspiring comments, they'd be getting the same in return. We need to be kinder to each other, even though we're very frustrated right now.


The good news is that on New Years Eve, Terry and Linda were once again on Coast to Coast radio, where they had predicted the 2001 World Trade Center attacks on the eve of the last new decade. For this new decade however, they see no major terrorist attacks in our immediate future. But they don't predict smooth sailing, either. According to them, it all depends on the kind of energy we put out.

Maybe psychics don't have control over when predictions come to them. They just come whenever they come and they can't be prompted. (I hope this isn't considered a "snarky" comment. I don't think so but I hope nobody is offended.)

This situation is coming since many years ago. The middle class, in the differents levels, have been ripoff for many years by the economic powerfull class, and then, today we have the results. Up today the politicians have been also part of this catastrophic situations and they know very well what I mean.

If this is not a scam, would it not be redundant then to state that it isn't one? Doesn't that discredit you further? Why in Sam Hell would you need to refute a claim not yet made? If you wan't to sound less mechanical, then type it like the average idiot with spelling errors and unnecessary abbreviations and "like"s. Once you've done that, save it and put it on every comment area you can possibly find. Always include a short caption along with your revised schpeal that makes the bloggers and commentators feel like your a human and that you care about the actual blog/other site's subject.

What we need is a huge world war.. Something simple but violently effective...No nukes...Just guns and sharp implements...Perhaps overthrow the congress and tar and feather a few of those morons...We decrease the population, cut down on the ozone production and give the earth a fresh start...We always have an economic boom after a war and lots of jobs are produced during the war, so..there you are...And after it ends we will all feel so much better...Democracy is only a boon for the wealthy...All these years the wealthy have used this corrupt and useless form of government to keep the poor and less fortunate down..We need something new and our government cannot give it to us...Be prepared for a long recession/depression before we come out of this one...

I think most of us regular people know that "enough is enough" the question is how to get us together in a group. This discussion is the best I've ever read here. Now people are talking like Americans. Look at our genetic makeup . . . we are the decendants of revolutionaries. This country was started by the "misfits" and "criminals" who were being thrown out of Europe. Our forefathers and ancestors were anarchists who believed in civil disobedience and questioning authority. Have you noticed, there's hardly a "snarky remark" in this thread? Why? Because this is intelligent discourse. This needs to keep going. Our founding fathers met in their homes, pubs, on the street corners to talk revolution. Now, we're doing it on the Internet and reaching millions at a time, not two or three people. United we stand . . . the people do need to start these conversations and keep them going. The common people who are being run over by our own government need to know that they are not alone in their thoughts that this government is not now, nor has it been for a long, long time, of the people, by the people and for the people.

Here are a few keys to economic recovery. First, capital flees to where it is treated best. The reason we have a declining manufacturing and industrial base in this country is that we have created a regulatory environment that punishes success and causes capital to fund the likes of China and India. Second, the government creates the regulatory climate in which the free market operates. When the free market is perverted by the regulatory action of government, it does very stupid things - like giving mortgages to people without an income, job or assets. Third, the only way out of this mess is going to be very painful as we are printing dollars as if the world owed us a living. The only ways to repay the debt being created are either a huge tax increase (which will further depress the already fragile economy) or significant inflation (which will further depress the already fragile economy). Finally, the jobs that create wealth and sustain the government don't come from the government they come from the wealth creation activity of individuals. If the government makes it difficult to create or sustain a business, then people will not be employed and the overall levels of unemployment will stay high as they did during the FDR depression.
