Laid off from: Blum Shapiro Accounting, Nov. 21, 2008
New venture: EFW Productions
Three months after he joined accounting firm Blum Shapiro to run a new performance management practice, Geoffrey Weglarz was laid off. While he's still looking for full-time work, he's also pursuing several independent ventures, including an underwater photography and film production business. Though he's made underwater documentaries for local schools as a hobby, Weglarz hopes to consult for film and TV producers and turn it into an income-producing business. With any passion, he says, "to turn it into a vocation you really need to have a plan."
