To successfully find and keep jobs, people must prevent their problems from becoming obstacles or excuses.

It also helps viewers develop the attitudes, resources, and know-how to meet their needs, analyze their options, and take action. As a result, viewers will be better equipped to overcome their barriers and achieve long-lasting success and security in the world of work.
