James had received a generous pay out from his firm when redundancies were announced. He went on several interviews and was surprised that he didn’t get any of the roles. He began to feel a bit panicky as he became concerned about paying the bills, especially with a young family. He almost took any role that came before he applied himself within just one week to the CDM™ process. It made him realise that in fact, he had the perfect skill set and experience necessary for a new venture and set about the journey to set up his own company. Filled with a new enthusiasm and purpose, he embarked on a networking focus for his new business. Impressed with his entrepreneurial attitude, he was approached by a company to be a full-time employee. In the end he parked his new business venture in order to ensure his financial stability but expects in a few years to revisit the new venture opportunity.
