I have worked in the Information Technology field for over 30 years, half at one company. What do you do when you are laid off? It was a new, bad feeling. I wanted a way to be self-employed, and work whenever and where ever I felt like I was being controlled others, not choosing my own destiny. That why I got into Internet Marketing.
When I am not involved in that, I spend time doing what I like, playing with my dogs (basset hounds), practicing on my drums, or listening to music, or curling up with a good book.
