I thought I was heading out to find a new job, but I was really starting a life changing journey of self reflection and growth.

In the summer of 2008, Robert Cantrall was living happily in a nice house with a successful job and thriving family. Eight months later, he was immersed in bankruptcy, foreclosure, unemployment and divorce. Cantrall demonstrates how he overcame several hardships and made his life the best it has ever been in his new book, “The Fall of My Life.”

The book follows Cantrall as he embarked on his job search and ultimately found a new way of living and looking at life.

“I was fortunate enough to be completely impacted by the 2008 downturn,” Cantrall said. “I thought I was heading out to find a new job, but I was really starting a life changing journey of self reflection and growth.”

In the book, Cantrall tells his story while tackling the important repercussions from long-term unemployment, such as depression, job searching, and relationship issues. Ultimately, Cantrall found that pervasive fear was hindering not only his unemployment but also his transformation into a complete man.

“If there’s one thing my life has taught me, it’s that no one escapes challenges,” Cantrall said. “This book helps readers through inevitable misfortunes with the resources I discovered along the way.”
