    Incredibly powerful…now you've given us something concrete to share with our recently laid-off friends besides a hug and an “I'm so sorry.” Thank you.

    Am I the only one that finds this depressing? It's inspiring yes, but it also points out how bad my own situation is. If I was laid off I would immediately have to start selling my possessions and figuring out a way to get to my parents' home on the other side of the country. The trailer makes it seem like everyone featured is in a mid- to upper-level position. It will be great if some of the success stories are from people who were living hand to mouth before the lay-off.

    I got my Lemon last year on Christmas Eve-Eve (Dec 23) and I've been squeezing the crap out of that mutha' since.

    It's lemonade now. Every now and then I catch a seed – a demon pops up and scares me – but, most of the time (most of the time!), I drink it with gusto. It seems to be the only thing capable of untying the knot in my stomach thatI carried around for 30-corporate-years.

    Ahhhh…

    Great post, Chris.

    I love what I am doing now as an educator and trainer to people who are grappling on how to use the social web for professional or business reasons.

    Saying good-bye to my employer of 28 years, only to find out how dated I was with respect to the knowledge and use of the internet was revealing.

    Thanks to the mentors, like you Chris who have taught me along the way.

    Indeed, being laid off completely changed my life. I was laid off after being out with pneumonia for several weeks. What could have been the worst time in my life turned out to be an amazing transformation. http://www.wellplannedweb.com/2009/09/tampa-web

    This is awesome. They are describing me, except I got fired. I've been recreating my life for the past 6 months. I'm now selling black-eyed peas – a Southern tradition that you eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck and prosperity. A short term thing that will hopefully turn into a long term something else. I have never been happier. I have a second chance in life and I'm helping others who need a second chance in life. Check out my peas! http://www.peasforprosperity.com

    I have read the information which is for the New change for the world.I like the post's information and video which clarify each and every situation very much.Part of it is imaging that you can have a new and different life and their different powers.I want to know suggestion from others.It takes a life changing moment to rip us from the status-quo that we allow ourselves to get trapped in and start thinking for ourselves again.

    I was let go 2 days after my 48th Birthday, September 25th. One year ago, September 15th I was let go from my other job. This time around I have promised myself not to stress and my unemployment is now call “funemployment”. I am doing the things that I have not had time to do. I am writing and I never knew I was a writer!

    Obviously many people are in those shoes right now. No doubt that it's a tough situation but there are so many opportunities if people would just look around.

    My employer said I would be laid off after the season was over, now he says he can’t because there is still work. I need my unemployment benefits. Is “lay off” only for lack of work? Or can they lay me off since I full filled my agreement to stay there season?

  • Lori Fongson

    I got so much encouragement and inspiration from watching this video! I'm changing my career track from being a paralegal to teaching, which should have been my life's work in the first place. I'm going back to school this spring to get a teaching credential. I'd like to do something that makes a lasting impact in a young person's life.

    This film looks like it's going to be great! We also have made a comedy feature film titled “Laid Off”. We have recently won the audience award in the Asheville Film Festival. Here is a link to the trailer, http://vimeo.com/7956823.
