15: How to escape a job that is killing you

Ever felt like your job was killing you? Listen in to this episode to learn how to escape a job that isn't serving you, so you can go and do work that matters to you and the world.

Dr. Kevin Cuccaro is the founder of Straight Shot Health, where he helps people reduce their stress, get free from back pain, and create habits for better health.

He does this through online courses, blog posts, and his podcast. Kevin’s got a ton of lessons to share, including how to escape a job that’s killing you.  You can also get some insights on making the transition from a job where you’re a subject matter expert, to being a business owner where your responsibilities are broader than your area of expertise.

Key points:

  • The first thing you need to do if you want to free yourself from a job
  • The mistake many beginning entrepreneurs make
  • The one thing small business owners should always focus on
  • The false prisons many people put themselves in (and how to escape them)
  • Why some people live in “the comfort of misery”
  • The type of learning we’re most hard-wired for
  • What an entrepreneur really is
