David Shriner-Cahn had a comfortable career first as a chemical engineer, then as an executive at a not-for-profit organization where he led and managed teams and organizations. This worked for him for 28 years, until the day someone else told him the gig was up.
After the fear of being involuntarily unemployed subsided, Shriner-Cahn had a realization: in his next business life, he wanted to be the one calling the shots. In 2006 he launched his consulting business, TEND Strategic Partners, and later started a blog that morphed into a podcast, Smashing the Plateau. And that led into a second podcast: Going Solo.
Shriner-Cahn is doing all of this to bring entrepreneurs together because he wants to help high-achieving professionals take control over their own futures and write their own stories. He recently took a break from his two podcasts to join me on my own. He talked about the importance of making breakthroughs and how his background in engineering led him to focus on having good processes that are both efficient and effective. Many people say they want to take over their own careers and reach new goals, but the gap between where they are and where they want to be needs to be closed before those realizations can happen.
