106: Physician and Country Music Artist Dr. James Robert Webb on Mastery, Creating Your Own Lane, and Living An Intentional Life

Welcome to episode 106 of Optimal Health For Busy Entrepreneurs.

We have Dr. James Webb, a doctor by day who fixes backs, and a country music singer by sundown, stopping by for a fascinating discussion on mastery, health, philosophy, and of course, music. Dr. Webb has created his own unique lane in medicine and is now taking that same spirit to the world of country music. So, if you’re a creative or someone who is yearning and feeling that a change is a must in your life right now—then you’ll dig this episode. Also, at the end of the episode, I included Dr. Webb’s hit single ‘Okfuskee Whiskey, ‘ an infectious feel-good song that’s been on repeat for me.
