When Your Dream Is Bigger Than Your Fear with Felicia Shanken
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Have you ever questioned how well your skills will transfer to a new position? No matter what work you are doing, you have technical and soft skills to transfer into a new role and add incredible value to a new organization or your business. 

 

Felicia Shanken had an excellent medical career before venturing into her entrepreneurial journey at mid-career. Her authenticity, ability to build relationships and problem-solve has served her well in your business and her life. 

 

I get on the mic with Felicia to talk about how she builds a meaningful and valuable network of colleagues and connections and how she’s learned to get out of her comfort zone to follow her passion and live a life that is unapologetically hers.
