# 73 Getting out from hard failures with Dr. Tamer Shahin

This is a true story of an entrepreneur who set up his business and made millions in a short time, got published in Forbes as a digital health thought leader, owned a Ferrari, and then everything came tumbling down to the point that his business partner went to prison and he had 2M in personal debt.

One of the most painful moments for Dr. Tamer Shahin was to call his business partner’s pregnant wife and tell her that her husband won’t be home for the delivery.

Tamer then rebuilt success in digital health, won a UK national innovation award, and gave a TEDx talk. He has learnt from extraordinary success and catastrophic adversity! Today, he is on a mission to help business owners and entrepreneurs learn those precious lessons.

What insights you will get from this episode:

  • What failure feels like? How to break out of your cocoon and not be a hermit when failure hits you.

About Dr. Tamer Shahin
