Claire Dorotik-Nana has experienced adversity of a severity few of us will ever know.
The day before Valentines Day in 2001, Claire's mother murdered her father, who was bludgeoned and strangled. Only days earlier, Claire's family seemed about as normal as they come.
If that wasn’t awful enough, the lawyer defending Claire’s mother subsequently suggested that Claire, who was 24 at the time, had been the one to perpetrate the heinous crime.
Under such stress, most people would have crumbled.
Instead, Claire – this week’s guest on Monday Morning Radio - grew from the traumatic experience, and ever since has been helping others who face all variety of stress and trauma.
Claire, a licensed therapist and popular online columnist, is the author of a new book, Leverage: The Science of Turning Setbacks into Springboards. The book offers insights that can help small business owners and entrepreneurs cultivate the necessary skills to overcome adversity, both on the job and in their private lives.
Turn up the volume, as Claire shares the amazing story of her rebound this week with host Dean Rotbart.
