Why Are Firefighters Better Entrepreneurs Than Cops?

Drew Aversa is my guest on the show today. He is a former San Jose Firefighter who transitioned into full-time entrepreneurship after a devastating injury that was inflicted during a training incident. Drew is now a Business Consultant, Executive Coach, Keynote Speaker, and Corporate Trainer for his self-titled coaching business.

Drew and I were having a conversation one day. I pointed out to him that I don’t think I’ve ever met a firefighter that didn’t have a side-hustle and I wondered why it was that firefighters were so well primed for entrepreneurship, yet cops seem to have a mental barricade. Our conversation after that was so good, we decided to jump on and record a podcast to discuss it further. Listen in on our conversation, because I am trying to create a paradigm shift within law enforcement and hope that you too will join me in that.

How Law Enforcement Can EVOLVE in the Wake of Floyd and Chauvin
