Career Ownership Coaches™ at The Entrepreneur’s Source® inspire people to get up and discover new possibilities for their future.

National Get Up Day is celebrated on February 1 each year and provides people with an opportunity to share inspiring stories of perseverance. For many people who suffer from Battered Career Syndrome® or were downsized from the current role, National Get Up Day serves as a reminder to pick yourself up when you endure a setback and forge a new path. If you are experiencing a career transition or got passed over for promotion again, National Get Up Day is the perfect opportunity to take charge of your financial freedom and discover the American dream.

#WeGetUp Highlights Dedication and Determination

National Get Up Day was started by the U.S. Figure Skating in 2017 to encourage people to recognize the grit, passion and perseverance needed to “Get Up” in the rink and in life every day. U.S. Figure Skating, the national governing body for the sport of figure skating in the United States, encourages people around the nation to participate in the celebration by sharing stories of determination on social media using #WeGetUp.

“The goal of The Entrepreneur’s Source® is to provide every American a chance to tell their own #WeGetUp story,” said Terry Powell, Visionary Founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source®. “Our coaches offer the support and education individuals need to create a secure financial future and find joy in their career endeavors. Our coaches help individuals create their #WeGetUp story every day.”

Overcome #BatteredCareerSyndrome

Unlike past generations, today’s corporate America does not offer long-term job security and advancement. In fact, the days of working at a large corporation for your entire career are long gone. The median number of years that workers had been with their current employer was 4.1 years in January 2020, according to research released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in September. Not surprisingly, evidence of the employment shift by age is clear. Among workers ages 60 to 64, 54 percent had been employed for at least 10 years with their current employer in January 2020, compared with 10 percent of those aged 30 to 34.


As job security continues to plummet, many Americans are floundering. At least 7.3 million unemployed Americans were trying to find a job in December, and yet 663,000 believed there were no jobs available for them, the BLS revealed. The new realities of corporate America are leaving many hard-working Americans feeling battered and bruised. Battered Career Syndrome® happens when your company lacks job security and workers live in fear of being downsized owing to outsourcing or cutbacks. A Career Ownership Coach™ at The Entrepreneur’s Source® can provide people with the stepping stones to escape the corporate hamster wheel and take charge of their careers.
