Host Ali's Bio

Host Ali photo image

Alicia J. Ward, Author, Radio Personality, Entrepreneur

Alicia Ward is the wife and mother of two adorable children, who resides in Metro Atlanta. She attended and graduated Cum Laude from historically renowned Tuskegee University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. After graduating from Tuskegee, Alicia pursued her professional career in Atlanta, as a Commercial Production Underwriter. It was while working in this capacity, that Alicia encountered her first experience of a layoff. It was a long and challenging road, to get back on her feet, and one that left her feeling broken and with low self-esteem. Although broken, she was not defeated, and after fighting her way back into viable employment, Alicia gained valuable professional experience throughout a variety of industries.

As life oftentimes repeats itself, Alicia found herself once again apart of a major company layoff from her job of almost fourteen years at a major post-secondary college. However, the difference about this particular layoff was that Alicia felt a PEACE about her layoff and accepted it with a positive outlook.

Understanding that this peace was gift from God, Alicia was divinely inspired to use her layoff experience as an opportunity to discover her calling while she inspires and empowers others to use their gifts and talents to walk in their life purpose. As a result, Alicia's blog There is Life After Layoff® was born. The success of the blog resulted in her hosting a talk radio show of the same name, which is a representation of her journey and growth through the experience of a layoff. She is also a 2-time published author of the books There is Life After Layoff-Rediscovery and Empowerment Journal, and the collaborative project, If Her Purse Could Talk. Alicia currently serves, as the Vice President of Membership for the Toastmasters International-West Georgia Chapter, Vice President of the PTSA at Hiram High School as well as a motivational speaker and business coach.

About the Book

The struggling economy has unfortunately affected thousands of people. Today, many of us have become all too familiar with what corporate America cleverly calls "Internal Restructuring," which is nothing more than a euphemism for "Layoff." After thirteen plus years of employment, I was laid-off for the second time in my professional career. I never saw it coming! In the very moment in which I learned of my fate, I decided to use this devastating, life altering event as an opportunity to discover my true purpose which is to inspire, uplift and empower others who may be facing similar circumstances.

As a result of this reawakening, I was moved to create a blog titled, There is Life After Layoff®"-my journey of truth, transparency and rediscovery through the experience of being laid-off. My blogging journey ultimately led to the creation of There is Life After Layoff-Rediscovery and Empowerment Journal, which is a practical guide and useful resource full of hope. I felt compelled to recollect and share personal real-life experiences, thought provoking questions and helpful tools, in the hopes that it will empower and inspire you on your way to discovering all that God has purposed for your life!

Review:

"There is Life After Layoff, deposits hope into the heart of anyone who has experienced loss, excavates tenacity out of the tunnel of depletion, and awakens the reader to a newfound more permanent place called peace. There is breath, hope love and yes, "There is Life After Layoff;" take the journey today!"

-Maura Gale, Actress & Author
