Would you rather be comfortable or fully alive?


Episode #606 April 06, 2018

As we talk about the benefits of exploring new opportunities, we zone in on teachers. Yes, many of them are leaving their jobs in traditional education to explore new opportunities. Dan shares some resources for teachers who want to explore new opportunities.

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable.  This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die.  Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


1. I’m at a point in my current job where role expectations have changed and I feel that I need to find something else. 

2.  I am not seeing any success stories where teachers are finding success with your book.  

3.  I have been in the car business for the last 20 years as a tech or autobody and paint guy. It’s time to move on due to repetitive back injuries.

4.  Should I be honest that my current boss is a crook when asked “Why do you want to leave your current job?”

Next week – the choices we make!
