How To Deal With Unexpected Change (like the loss of a job) with Dallas Burnett


Dallas Burnett is an entrepreneur, author, and coach with extensive experience in business strategy, research and development, product development, corporate training, and executive leadership. A graduate from Florida State University - College of Business, he holds an MBA in business with a special focus on business strategy. He is the author of MOVE! From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, a book designed to help readers find clarity and direction to move forward and overcome hurdles.


Dallas joins me today to discuss the four key pillars to move forward after experiencing an unexpected change, such as the loss of a job. He explains why change can begin only when you’ve become clear on what you truly want and what you’re comfortably willing to do to achieve it. He explains why clarity is often so elusive for many people, especially midlifers. He demystifies common misconceptions people have on what boundaries truly are and how the process of discovery and developing self-awareness impacts your ability to achieve clarity. He also explains what a “living visual” is and why it’s okay for your wants and desires to evolve as you reach midlife.
