Welcome to The Main Thing. This is your new 9-minute podcast.  I’m your host Skip Lineberg.  I’ve set out to interview the wisest people I know. We will see what we can learn from each one when they are faced with an incredibly difficult, soul-piercing question.

My guest today is Dennis Gillan. About 5 years ago, Dennis left his lucrative corporate job as a pharmaceutical rep to take a leap of faith, to pursue his mission, his life’s calling. Today, Dennis is a mental health advocate, consultant to businesses and an accomplished public speaker. He is a thought-leader and a passionate, tireless champion for suicide prevention.

In this latest episode, you will discover what inspired Dennis’ major change of path. You’ll also find out what unique morsel of wisdom he has chosen to share with us.
