David Shriner-Cahn

After 28 years as a highly skilled employee, I was told that my job was over. In spite of the immediate trauma and fear, I knew that as my next step, I'd rather work for myself and have more control over my destiny. That was in 2006.

Today, I'm a thriving entrepreneur, podcaster and speaker. I guide highly skilled professionals who are recovering from a late career job loss and who yearn to impact the world with their knowledge and creativity by becoming successful entrepreneurs.
