We’re looking for readers who lost their jobs in recent months who’ve devised new and creative ways of staying afloat financially. Did you find customers for a service or talent you have, from baby-sitting to piano lessons? Did you sell valuables to get some extra cash? If you’d be willing to share your story, e-mail a short note to Phillip Ramati at firstname.lastname@example.org, giving your name and a daytime phone number. The deadline is Friday, Aug. 28.
