Pastor uses initiative, networking to battle unexpected layoff

January 3, 2011

The morning of Dec. 4, 2008, Greg Hodsden, pastor of fellowship with Faith Evangelical Free Church of Fort Collins, went in for his annual meeting with the pastor.

Before going in, Hodsden told his wife, half joking, he hoped he would have a job at the end of the day. He didn't.

With three months' severance to go on, Hodsden paid a visit to Dave Sizemore of TSC Supply, a carpet cleaning supplies and equipment shop in Loveland, with the idea of starting his own cleaning business. From The Coloradoan.
