“There were a couple of weeks around Christmas when I didn’t do much,” said the longtime project manager. “But I knew I needed to get going after the first of the year. I’m still the major breadwinner for my family, and I couldn’t afford to do nothing. And feeling sorry for myself was not going to get me anywhere.”
To find another well-paying, full-time job, Miller heeded a friend’s suggestion and showed up one February Monday morning at St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Ballwin.
There, at a Businesspersons Between Jobs (BBJ) meeting, Miller encountered the fellowship and counsel he needed to get back on track. He didn’t know it at the time, but Miller was following a path traveled by thousands of St. Louisans since 1972.
