From Losing a Job to Finding Entrepreneurship, with Courtney Canfield

In April 2020, Courtney Canfield saw a layoff coming a mile away. Like many, she lost her job because of COVID-19. But instead of sitting around, Courtney made something out of nothing – and now she’s running a successful business while becoming a pet influencer (yes, a pet influencer!).  On the show today, Courtney talks to Don about her journey, then starts asking Don questions about how to build a successful marketing agency.


The Donald Thompson Podcast is hosted by Walk West CEO, mentor, investor, and Diversity and Inclusion Consultant Donald Thompson.

Music for this episode provided by Jensen Reed from his song, “You Can’t Stop Me”.
