Leaving the safety net of a job to start your own business is challenging as it is. But if this job loss is unexpected, the trauma can cause you to feel paralyzed, and take a long time to sort out which career path to follow next.

If you ever find yourself – or a friend – in this situation then they’ll benefit from having advice from people who have successful made this transition and understand the unique fears and doubts that the person is facing.

My friend David Shriner-Cahn knows this journey first hand. After unexpectedly losing his job, he drifted around until he finally found a path that aligned his unique skills with consulting and podcasting. But it wasn’t without challenging times, crippling fears and a lot of lessons learned!

Listen in on episode 149 of Amplify Your Success Podcast as I talk with David about his journey and how he conquered those doubts and created success by “going solo!”

Key Takeaways

>> Why the trauma of an unexpected job loss impacted David’s focus and motivation.
