Got A Tip?


Take a Deep Breath


Losing your job is sure to bring up feelings of shock, betrayal and perhaps even guilt, but you’re taking the first step towards dealing with your emotions and getting back to work. The first 30 days of losing your job can be hard, but over the next month, you’ll begin to take control of your situation and maybe even find a better career path.

In the next 30 days, you can expect to:

* Formulate a plan for finding another job.
* Adjust your finances to compensate for your job loss.
* Deal with the emotions that come up after losing a job.
* Realize that as painful as this process is, there’s something positive around the corner.

On this first day, take some time and just let it sink in. Take a deep breath. Stay in the moment. Whatever emotions you’re experiencing during this unexpected time, give yourself permission to feel them. Cry. Get angry. Feel sad, helpless, frightened or maybe even liberated. Just allow yourself to feel those emotions so you can move on and find an even greater destiny.

I am in my early 40s and have never had a happy relationships or marriages because of the terrible mistake I made in my youthful age (15 years ago), though I have been married for 3times now. This story is ugly but I must share it to clear my conscience and pave the way for a new beginning in life. I broke two homes; their marriage did not mean anything to me as much as I gets what I want. It was fun until I got married, then karma started. My first husband was a cheating machine with both women and men, the second was nothing to write home about. I visited a therapist immediately the second left, to make sure I do not have broken home again, but the third which I have married for a year and two months took in another girl and demanded I leave his house. I did not see that one coming. To cut it shot; dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) showed me mercy by rewriting history with a special love spell. Asked me to first go and plead for forgiveness from the homes I broke before the spell can take effect, it was not an easy task, in fact it was a suicide mission but was success. The spell took effect immediately I forgave myself, something strange began to happen, I saw shadows running off my body that morning, my husband who despised me so much did not only call but came to pick me from work to a romantic dinner. Over a year now, my husband has remained a loving and romantic man. I learnt my lesson. Thank you doctor wakina.


I never take some people for granted, especially those that plays vital role in my life. Dr. Wakina is one of them. Ever since he was recommended to me, he has been playing a significant role in my life by helping me get back my girlfriend after months of breakup and also granting me the opportunity to obtain the position I have been seeking. His spell stood like a pillar in my life when I was seriously depressed and almost give-up every opportunity I had.

My girlfriend really mean a lot to me, I see my future with her before she was deceived by a guy for marriage who latter used and dumped her before her disappearance. I didn’t know all these until Dr. Wakina disclosed series of interesting secrets to me through his email (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com). I did what almost every normal guy can’t do by ignoring friends advises to forget her and move on. I never quit searching for her because I see my future and family in her.

The risk I took was worth it, we’re envied today and made reference to by critics. Once again, thank you Dr. Wakina for the powerful spell done that made me unite once again with my lover, I appreciate the efforts you put in even in your busy schedule to make sure this spell is successful. I appreciate you for opening my eyes for new opportunities around me.


I was laid off from my job as a teacher in CA. I just want to teach!!!


I quit a job to make more money. But it did not work out, that way. When I started the new job. I was making less money durning the training, which they did not tell me that. Then they were not training me the right way. Then they fired me. Because they said I was not making it. I was upset for a short second, then I realize they did me a favor. Only thing I am having a hard time finding a job now, like a lot a people are during these times. God Bless everyone that is looking.
