Know the Positive Side of Getting Laid Off With Diana Layseca’s
“The Gifts of Being Laid Off”

Look past the negative and see the opportunities that being laid off provides


CUPERTINO, CA – September 1, 2017 – Everyone has gotten laid off from their job at least once in their lifetime. Getting laid off can be extremely worrying because we all have bills to pay and mouths to feed. But just like with everything else in this world, there are times when things you first thought were bad and hopeless are actually good things. You just need to look past the negativity and see the brighter side.

Diana Layseca wrote “The Gifts of Being Laid Off” to inspire those who have experienced getting laid off to not lose hope. She herself lost her job four times in the last five years due to layoffs, but she survived. According to Diana, the last time she got laid off was a blessing because she got to enjoy her life to the fullest and do things she wanted to do.

Diana is a bilingual market research professional experienced in building relationships and managing accounts for Fortune 500 organizations, including General Mills, Coca-Cola, The Clorox Company, and Kaiser Permanente. She focuses on client needs and has a proven track record of expanding business opportunities and building territory throughout local and international markets by applying market research methodologies to determine the need of a service, the product likelihood to sell, target-market demographics, and desirable store locations.

“It’s true what they say, that your hardest times lead to the greatest moments of your life so long as you believe in yourself and not lose hope. Getting laid off can certainly be a downer, but it’s also an opportunity that can turn things around for the better. 'The Gifts of Being Laid Off' gives you that push you need to see how everything will be all right,” says Mitchell Levy @happyabout, The AHA Guy Thought Leader at AHAthat™ (
