Hurricanes, Real Heroes, and the Ones Who Keep America Going

October 11, 2022

Hurricanes, Real Heroes, and the Ones Who Keep America Going

Today’s episode proposal is slightly different as we still deal with Hurricane Ian’s aftermath. The first sensation that comes to mind is gratitude for staying healthy and being so blessed. I’ve been lucky enough to stay safe, to have plenty of water and food, and to have my house barely touched by the Category 4 storm, with only minimal damage. 

Still, as the city stands on its feet again, I thought it was a good idea to bring up some interesting facts that we only realize when things like a natural disaster force us to. 

We go through the importance of checking and being on top of our insurance details. What should we be looking at, what are our deductibles, and how can we prepare so we are not surprised in the future? It is also a great chance to look at those who keep things going, recognize the underrated value of blue-collar workers, encourage our kids to work in the trades, and stop overestimating the importance of college degrees. Lastly, I invite you to ignore the cynical version of society we know and find and praise the real heroes, the good people. 

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why it is crucial to pay attention to our insurance’s details (3:18)
  • The underappreciated work of blue-collar workers and their job (5:15)
  • The heroes we deserve, and need (7:57)
  • About the need to spread positivity and actively look to help others (12:40)

Never would have thought a podcast by an auto repair shop would have such useful information for a life coach! Kim is open, unconventional and totally easy to listen to. Loved her background story and this non-auto-centered woman can’t wait to hear more!
