I’m David Shriner-Cahn, host of Smashing the Plateau. I started my business, TEND Strategic Partners, in 2006, following a long career as an employee. Beginning my professional life as a chemical engineer, I transitioned into the not-for-profit sector, where I was in leadership and management roles for many years.
Once I was in my own business, I realized I had much to learn about how to be a successful entrepreneur. I discovered that it can be lonely, too. I gained knowledge and support being around other entrepreneurs.
In 2014, we launched Smashing the Plateau to share the stories, experiences and strategies of entrepreneurs that strive for long-term success. We have hundreds of episodes addressing a wide variety of topics and challenges faced every day by entrepreneurs.
In 2019, we added Going Solo to share strategies for highly-skilled professionals to build their own business following a late career job loss.
If you need help finding a solution – or have a question about a challenge you are facing – please get in touch with me. We are here to serve our listeners, and I’d love to have a chance to hear your story.
