Think of 5 people who have helped you financially in the last year or two. Maybe they helped you find a job, gave you some financial advice that worked, or were mentors. Contact each one, let them know that you were just thinking of them, and wanted to thank them for their financial help in the past. Catch up with them on how they are doing briefly, and then let them know your financial situation or struggles and see what they advice, they will be more than happy to help. It’s interesting how when you acknowledge and thank someone for their help they are more than happy to provide you with a lot more, most often on their own without you even asking. After recently quiting my job, I started talking to an old employee who left my company 6 months ago, and I let him know how I missed joking around with him at work, and wanted to catch up. I also let him know that I just quit my current job. He informed me that they are currently hiring at his company and offered to help me find a new job without me even asking.
