After a successful couple of days on the road in Edinburgh, we hit a minor speed-bump in our tour and broke-down, just outside of Morpeth!
This got us thinking… how many times a year we hit minor speed bumps in our careers, and temporarily break-down. Luckily for most of us, this is nothing more than a temporary glitch, a bad day at most. However, shocking recent statistics have shown that at least 27% in employment often or always feel depressed, with 48% of those not in education, employment or training feeling this way.
The reality is, much like the temporarily sad fate of our campervan, there is help, motivation and support out there for those that need it, through a combination of advisory sessions, training and employer reviews.
Luckily for us, we managed to tow our way to the next pit-stop, with a bit of perseverance and determination! We’ll be putting our camper in for repair and have a temporary replacement until he’s fixed, but will make sure we make it to all of our Pit-stops, one way or another!
On this occasion, it would seem ‘MOT’ is one pun too far!
