Mark Shaiken on Changing Careers and His Book, “And…just like that”

Mark Shaiken joins me for a wide-ranging conversation on Life Without Limits. We talk career changes, the impact of art on youth, and Habitat for Humanity.  

After over 41 years as a high-powered attorney, Mark Shaiken left the law office. And, he never returned. Instead, he leaned into his interests for photography and helping others.  

Since, Shaiken has authored: And… Just LikeMark-Shaiken_And Just like that That – Essays on a life before during and after the law.  This poignant and funny essay collection is a must-read for anyone considering a career change. As well, it’s an great collection anyone involved in a law profession.

Read a sample. Or, buy the book.
