Brielle detailed her experience of working at a startup where the challenges of adapting to the fast-paced environment proved insurmountable. Despite her willingness to learn and take on more responsibilities, the startup's limitations became evident as they lacked the bandwidth to provide adequate training and tasks. The unexpected layoff hit Brielle hard, particularly because it occurred right before the holidays. With hiring processes on pause until January 2024, the prospect of securing a new job immediately seemed daunting. Brielle shared her concerns about the time it would take to re-enter the workforce, highlighting the financial strain during the holiday season.

“The job that I was working 9 to 5, I wasn’t making enough to live," she disclosed, shedding light on the harsh reality that many individuals face when their salaries fall short of covering basic living expenses.
