S6 E7 - How YOU can build resilience in the face of chronic conditions
"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers looking frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be well just some craziness that is post military life so you can do more than survive. You can thrive my name. Is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband. Who beautiful wife daddy to two amazing kiddos and the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the process of rediscovering purpose in your post military life sue. You can thrive so the questions we talk about on the show you know. A lot of them are direct questions. You know how to use eleven gi bill. What's new for veterans. twenty one. Those are just a couple of things we talked about in the season. This is a season six episode. Seven and we're tackling a tough question today and there's no single answer to that's the toughest part about this question so before we dive into the question. I want you to think of math equations for minute. Just really simple ones. Two plus two. What's two plus two. It's four right so very simple. Very easy math equation vice. What's tuplice to. You're always going to say you're always going to know. Won't let's four but if i say what math equations when you finish them we'll have four as that end number and be like man. I don't know that's almost an unlimited number of answers. What's the same thing today. Because today's question is surrounding how you build resilience when a family member has a chronic condition and there was a virtually unlimited number of answers to this question. But i'm going to do my best to unpack those and there's a lot to unpack here so let's get started so my son. Christopher was born in two thousand eight and he had a kidney disease and still. Has this kidney disease to this day and We knew that he had some problems with his kidneys. Because they found the these problems on an ultrasound. When i was in iraq and my wife was still in germany and The the did the ultrasounds that hey you know what we recommend you go ahead and head back to the states because you know you can get you can get better medical care there in the states and so my wife moved back what she thought was temporarily and ended up being a permanent move I- redeployed early on and a compassionate reassignment and Got to fort knox kentucky which was the closest. Us army post Where to where. My son was getting his medical care and for the first couple years of his life he went through. Thing was eleven or twelve operations and Numerous other procedures to get these kidneys fixed. Now today. it's amazing it. You would never know. A single thing was wrong within the last couple of times. He's gone to the kidney. Specialists are like look his kidney. Function is great. He's doing very very well. And so that was a trial by fire so to speak. That was kind of like. Hey this this is A method i guess. A real world Test to see if you. Aaron are resilient and so. I learned a lot about resilience just in that experience. You know because again this is not just a flash in the pan you know Something one thing happened and then we had to deal with that. You know a broken limb or you know an accident or something like that. It was a chronic condition and again still is to this day but i learned a lot about resilience through dealing with my son's challenges with that disease and if you think back to military life right and this is army specifically i have to expect that all the services are like this but they build resilience in to the training plan. You know and as important as that is personal resilience all together now the past two months. I'll be honest with you. Guys have been absolutely brutal. They've been crazy because not only does my son have a kidney disease but my wife has chronic conditions as well so the past couple of months. My wife and i got her permission to tell some of her story. Her story is man. If if you ever meet my wife asked her to tell you her story because it is absolutely jaw dropping. How she is where she is today. You know based on where she came from and an all the the difficulties she came through to become the woman she is today but just in these past couple of months We experienced quite the scare and that scare It it seemed like it was cancer. Just be honest so for A while we were getting tests and then waiting for more tests and we got those tests and We said okay well. We're just going to get through this. You know no matter what happens. We're we're in this together and we're gonna stick together through this well. My wife goes to get a biopsy and she gets this biopsy. She's in recovery. The biopsy went fine. It was painful but it went fine. nothing was unexpected But it went fine while she was in recovery and this recovery was just a quick recovery. Just a few hours. She had what is called a ti or a mini stroke. And so we're like. oh my goodness how. In the world number-one how in the world is this happened number. Two how do we deal with this now. You know this is. This seems so much more serious than what it The what started out to be. We thought it was going into get a biopsy and and now here you've got to stay in the hospital. You've gotta be admitted well actually admitted to one hospital then transferred to another because at first hospital was too small and they didn't have the right doctors. There had to be transferred to another hospital and then finally a few days later she gets out. She's getting slowly better. But we still don't have those answers right. Don't have the answers in the biopsy because it takes a week or more to come back and you know she finally gets these answers and they're like yeah. Well we really don't know what it is. We really don't know what it is. It's not cancer. But we're not sure. And so they said. Well we want to send you to an autoimmune specialist and and those Those doctors are are booked up forever and well we can get you. Maybe like june july and so here we are still waiting on those answers and obviously all of this is stressing her out now. Little bit about that mini stroke just answered stress for her brings about these These symptoms where It stress basically over stresses her brain and she ended up needing to quit her job. And you talk about frustrating. And i don't mean frustrating like all you can't work anymore but she was super frustrated at like me. Why in the world is this happening. And and you know. What can i do to help and to build that resilience right but this is. This is not a story about my son. This is not a story about my wife specifically. Today's show is all about building that resilience when your family member has a chronic condition. And so i'll just tell you over. This was going with my wife. I stopped everything i could. You know some of you may have seen an email from said. Hey sorry. Our live mental health event An open dialogue mental health is going to be cancelled if your sponsor for the event. You've already paid. You know we're going to refund your money Which which already did. But there were so many things that i was doing that having a hand in that i said you know what i've just gonna stop doing those things and focus on what matters most right now focus and for me. That's my family. And and i think that is a key element to resilience is focusing on what you need to focus on and again. I know that sounds vague. Right but what is it that you personally need to focus on. Because i can't tell you what you should focus on. I can't tell you that. I wish i could but unfortunately i can't at so. I resigned my position from a nonprofit board Alabama veteran here in here in obviously alabama But also got some help from facebook in preparation In preparation for this episode and Some of you responded and told me how you build resilience in your own personal life. And i want to go through some of those responses real quick and then i'll dive into the five science backed strategies to build resilience but on facebook right. You know one of my friends. He said it. Because i asked i said look. I'm news and helping an oak upcoming podcasts. What are your go-to strategies for building resilience in your personal life and one of my friends. He's kind of a kind of a jokester but he says he says avoiding people and puts us little laughing face or winking face at the end of the comment but the the fact is sometimes that is the to do to help you build resilience and focus on what matters most to you another person. I and i love this. She said it's all about the thought life. It's about your mindset and and she also she said. I'm practicing telling myself no just to exercise that muscle while you know what that's not a bad idea and so there was a number of really good comments here but a couple of them Not a couple of them. I should say a couple of themes came out number. One was faith how my friends saying you know what. I'm learning to do what i've needed to do for years. And that's focus on my faith. You know my faith pushes me past that present crisis or would i'm perceiving as a crisis right you know made. My faith is reading and prayer. And you guys know if if you've listened to this podcast before that you know. This isn't absolutely faith-based podcasts. You know and and my my faith is that of christianity of following jesus But faith has been incredibly important for those seeking to build resilience in a personal lives and Additionally is time for self reflection so one thing is faith is the one theme that came out in the second was self reflection scheduled time for relaxation. And so using those hobbies or those Chill lacks kinda relaxing moments and building those in to your everyday life so that you can handle those stressors right And i wanna mention one of the thing this was. This was a a another theme. That that i know i said only two. There's actually three themes that came out and that's relationships. Relationships are so critically important and one guy actually When my friends here in the area said whoa to him and this is a scripture verse. Actually he's fourteen. He says woe to him who was alone when he falls and doesn't have another lift him up because look lifestyle right. It's really really tough. And the truth is we can't do it by ourselves. We weren't meant to we weren't designed to So it's really really important to have those people in our lives to help us when we can't help ourselves so having those strong relationships around us In a one one other one other comment. I wanna to point out before you get to the five science back strategies for building resilience practice resilience by practicing being resilient each time. Something happens to us. We need to put that in her memory so next time that happens to us even if even if it never happens again we we have that memory of what we did as we figured out you know kind of how to go through that process the first time now. What does that have to do. With a chronic condition you a family member having a chronic condition. All those things apply. They apply directly. Okay so five. Science back strategies to build resilience and this will take just a few minutes number one change the narrative. So look when something bad happens whether it's a single event or a long term Kind of episode right. We often relive the event over and over in our heads and it's called ruminating rehashing the pain and and it it's like we're spinning our wheels. Basically you know There's a study. Said you know what maybe try expressive writing. You know to try gaining some new insights into the challenges in your lives. You know there are a few different ways. You can manage that but that you can change the narrative But one of the one of the ways is to reframe it in another Another perspective or another light. How do you that a one of the things you can do is talk to those in your life that you have those strong relationships with another reason why relationships are so incredibly important. That's the first one number to face your fears. Sure like man. I don't know what's going to happen. In my spouse's life from my child's life because of this chronic condition face it running away is not going to help and when i say face it i i don't mean just dive headlong into a by yourself and tackle it all alone. Another reason why those relationships are so important. So even if you know it's your spouse that's going through something being able to talk to someone else about it about what's going on in your life and how you were feeling is so incredibly valuable. You can't even put a number on it so number one going to change the narrative number to face your fears and face those fears with someone else number three and i'm gonna put this link. This is a great article will put this link in the show notes. You can check out this entire article yourself but practice self compassion. Think of it. Think of what. You're going through right now and think of that in someone else's perspective like if someone else had the same challenges you were having right. Now maybe your child is a chronic condition or your parent or your spouse and they came to you and said hey i. I'm having this problem you know. My wife had a cancer scare. She had many stroke and then We sort of know what's going on. Oh gosh i i don't know what to do. What would you do. Chances are you would be compassionate with them and we know fear versity they can make us feel really alone and we wonder why were the only ones feeling this way and what exactly is wrong with us and check chances are. There's nothing wrong with us at all. You know the there's this real problem with And with i within the veteran community that we all seem to think we're alone and the truth is were not and another reason why you need those strong relationships so you can remember. Hey i'm not alone this but practice self compassion be compassionate to yourself number four meditate and. I know that meditation sometimes gets a bad rap. But i will say. I've tried it myself meditation. Mindfulness and it is a wonderful stress. Reliever i will let you do your own research on that. But there is such value in meditation number. Five and this one is critically important. Cultivate forgiveness. And here's the thing. When it comes to a chronic condition of family member whether that's your spouse or child or your parent or or sibling you can sometimes get this. You can get mad right. And what is there to be mad at. Who is there to be mad at. Well you know you can be that nature you can be mad at god. You can be frustrated but holding a grudge is only going to hold you back. And and that expands far beyond just the Know caught debating forgiveness for forgiveness. Sake right extends will beyond that in well beyond the chronicle condition idea and goes further into your entire life because my pastor says it like this he says holding a grudge against someone is like setting yourself on fire and hoping. The other person dies from smoke inhalation. I know sometimes we feel like man. I've got to hold on to this grudge. I'm not going to forgive but cultivate forgiveness. And there's an entire chapter dedicated to forgiveness in the resolve book. And so i love you to check that out Head over to kurds fight again. Dot com click on. Get the book and you can find out more about forgiveness what that looks like. In the veteran's life look stress and struggles come in many forms in life adversity trauma. Fear shame betrayal of trust. Look there's a lot of things you can do though that can help you learn to cultivate forgiveness so those five science backs strategies to build resilience number one change the narrative face your fears in practice. Self compassion go easier self number four meditate again. You do your own homework. Do your own research there. Maybe it works for you. Maybe it doesn't. But i know in my own life it has helped kaminsky and number five avait forgiveness l look. I know we have a lot of questions. We all have a lot of questions in our lives but the most important question we can ask ourselves is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope this episode has helped. I'd definitely hope that you've gotten something out of it. If you have would you go to. I tunes and leave us a five star review. That would be amazing. And if you if you didn't like the episode and you're like hey. I learned something. Would you please go leave five star review. Those reviews actually helped so much. If you're like you know what. I'll leave review but maybe not five stars both. We'd like to hear those two so again. If you have any questions for us at all that you would like us to address here own the show. Send us a message podcasts. At courage to fight again dot com. And like i said at the beginning of the show. If it's on your mind it's worth exploring. Well thank you so much for listening. I'll see you next time We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

God within have you wanna look at it great spirit but to activate its ability to regenerate itself and to rebirth itself so the caterpillar has to go through an ego death and as doing bad it literally sends out. Secretions that dissolve itself. I mean imagine acid eating away at your being. And that's what feels. Sometimes you know we feel that way. All my god. I would go over here to this class.

"On. It's a program called to business. We had a little bit of a budget. Leftover surplus and we asked the board. What do you want to do with this money. And mark and his peers around the table said we need to get involved with schools. Business leaders need to get engaged with schools. We have got to get these kids earlier before they get out. And so that started as a pilot initiative last year where we had twelve hundred students across the state goede businesses on wedneday tour those different career pathways that were available and now this year in in lieu of kobe. All virtual program and we've got thirteen thousand students already in the first three weeks of the of the program we're going to host it all year long and other program. We run as our workforce recovery program. And so you know kentucky we've been hit really hard by the opioid epidemic by substance use disorder in in what we find is that it really really hinders our workforce participation and so in the last eighteen months we've trained about four thousand business leaders on how to update their hr policies and practices and how to be recovery friendly and fair chance employers in the past three four months. We've recruited six thousand second chance what we like to call fair chance jobs for individuals that come out of incarceration and get them meaningfully. Engaged back into the workforce. Alaska certainly not least we have our talent pipeline management program which pulls businesses from all across the state together by regions to mark's point if really easy for us in frankfurt To look across the state and say this is what needs to be done but quite frankly the magic happens in those communities if you believe it or not. We've talked a lot about other things. Besides cove and workforce bill all. We're talking about. We talked about bourbon and bourbon but one of the really cool places that we got to go see was the theater house. It's such a great business down there and covington and an interesting one too and got to go on site and see the see the thing. So let's take a look. We do have a retail shop in covington four hundred west third street so you can stop by there and we're we're here one six on on the daily one seven through the the halloween season and We're open on saturdays as well. But beyond covington we ship all over. So we are products have been featured in things like rupaul's drag race and on disney cruise lines a universal studios cleveland cavaliers cirque du soleil We have people like just in the past week. They order for fabric of our lamaze are used for making purposes and scotland. So we'll ship lemay there. We may ship We've shipley blank guns and stage weaponry to as far as Australia so we we really ship all around the world and we while we are open to the public. We have a large I'll say institutional and business bases. Well you know it is time to start thinking about what we're all going to do. Once this pandemic is over what we're gonna go see. I know i've been thinking about that. Everybody you know in the beginning of the year is like okay. What are we going to do. This year of vacation is happening. And but here's the deal you don't have to go far to have a really cool vacation. So we learned that first hand from tore with us us northern kentucky. They've got this great idea. Visit himself on the beeline kentucky's version of the bourbon trail. And and do this safely sip responsibly. That's what they like. Say randy and teeth daniels have a way for us to visit the stops on the be safely while also learning about the history of the area and tasting some really great bergen along the way. Yeah on my my list for two two hundred seventy one get vaccinated and get on one of these tours. We're focusing on the northern kentucky. Be line and craft stiller's There are quite a number of distilleries of large and small That are both under the katie or the kentucky dissociation or the or the kentucky bourbon trail The five distilleries in northern kentucky. Our new riff a second site spirits. County distilling and then Old pogue distillery and so really. That's that's where we're beginning our focus. We're were based at another kentucky. And the ideas for us to be able to get people from point a to point b or really from point a to point b c and then back to a crite in a safe way. Our our motto is a sip responsibly. And so that's where the transportation kind of comes in and it's an certainly big focus for distilleries because they want people to be safe to. And so this is a neat way to get people from their homes to the to the northern kentucky beeline and really experience Distilleries on the be liners such great history. The northern kentucky chamber offers tough moms leadership and professional development opportunity programs like our women's initiative professional series and regional youth leader helping to retain talent in our region we offer dozens of events that qualify for sees like hr one hundred and leader cats and don't forget about leadership northern kentucky with more than fourteen hundred alumni.

"Welcome back to the northern kentucky spotlight. I'm here at c. J. of course the sponsor of the northern kentucky spotlight and today. We're talking holiday travel if you have to travel in the next several weeks. We're going to let you know what maybe different this time around so here. Of course it's fly healthy and cvt and we're gonna talk to the vice president of customer experience. Adam chrysler is here to tell us all about adam. Thank you for. Joining us other podcast. Thanks okay so many of us have not settled on a plane in maybe a year maybe longer so tell us what's different this time around the same that there are a few key differences when you come here to the airport. The first is The parking has been consolidated into the parking garage so little can more convenient for the folks that are the parking out in the value park lot. But that's ten dollars a day the amok right into the terminal when you get into terminal. Keep that mask on social distance Those are the two key changes that we want everyone to keep in mind other than that. It's really you know business as usual. you know. we have a Our restaurants some of them are closed. But we have quite a few open. So we encourage folks out to the airport eric. Airport website And the flight healthy page and see what's open and what's What's happening out here so once you walk in you're going to see plexiglass barriers and those sorts of things when we get to the security line. Let's talk about timing and that sort of thing. Do we still need to hear two hours ahead. We still encourage folks to come out two hours early that we didn't get through ticketing and and get through the check. Point with the social distancing. The lines are a little bit slower than they typically are. But that just gives you that added Added confidence that. You're not going to miss that flight. And he gets to your destination and the tsa has as allowing more hand sanitizer to i know that's a big concern for that that is correct yep so in addition to the normal Three one one you can bring in an additional twelve. Ounces of hand sanitizer the deal when we talk about cleanliness and i know that's the question no matter where we go right now in the world of cove it What are the steps that c is taking to make sure that things are adequately cleaned so we've always maintained a very clean facility but a few key things that we've changed as we've really increased our our Our high touch cleanliness on the high touch areas. And then we've also brought in a new process where we are actually treating the surfaces for in the product we use as on the surface for thirty days gives us protection against virus and other viruses from your customers perspective. Those that you've talked to. What do they say about how. Things are a little bit different. This time around. The you know we do here. That's a little bit Permits lower and folks. You tend to get excited at the airport. And they forget the social distance but you know they They come back around when they realize their standard right on. Someone's mattia but for the most part you know just slightly Slightly to the flights are on time. I mean let's be honest of that. That's been one of the. Big benefits is the industry's very much on time reduction in activity But you know most folks aren't seeing much much difference you know. There's a few to changes. We have to make in terms of how we handle ourselves. Where in the mass. But for the most part it's a it's a very similar. We hear the announcement happening right now and this is your announcements throughout the reminding us too busy from those sorts of things at. It's also interesting. The boarding process in some cases a little bit different moving back to front not up on top of people. And that's all. The airlines have changed their boarding process and it is from the back to the front no more zone by zone by zone really encouraging folks just to limit those interactions and the amount of time of passing each other. We were just talking a little bit. I flew last weekend. And what i notice was even on more crowded planes The process of getting off the plane was much quicker because people we're not trying to like Jump in front of someone else. They wanted to really maintain that distance. And it's an interesting thing that A more crowded plane can get out quicker if we follow the rules. I think that's kind of the point isn't it. is you know it's interesting Before i was here at the airport. I worked for an airline and we spent a lot of time talking about that planning process. And you're exactly correct it If you just let it work and let it flow it works really well honestly. I don't think i've ever gotten out of a plane quicker and even even in a somewhat crowded plane so interesting there What about i know. Some airlines are selling the middle seat. Some are not. How does that process work. Its airline by airline. That's the way they're choosing to sell their to sell their their fleet You know that. I believe delta's the one that has announced that they're extending their no middle for a longer period of time. There's interesting reports out from some of our trade street news speaking about the cleanliness of the air on the aircraft. The air filtration is is hospital grade. And if if you recall the last time here in the plane the is coming down from above you and actually has pulled out by your feet. So that air is not blowing sideways. It's coming straight down and pass your body out the floor. All good news adam. Thank you so much we appreciate it. Thanks for coming out you to and of course we appreciate.

Cg whom you just heard from also mentioned that it There some airlines that nut gators and masked with bench. They're not allowed. I mean they literally will not let you on the plane. They typically have mass. They are that they they'll give you a but just keep in mind as you prepare to head wherever you're headed. Each airline has its own specific roles.

"Welcome back to the northern kentucky spotlight and right now. Christopher scott joins us he is a first net solution consultant. And we're gonna be talking about. I in exactly what it is but first of all. Thank you so much for joining us today for making me here. We are here. We are in the middle of a pandemic and i nat began in the midst of a completely different tragedy. So let's talk about how i met began in. We're has moved from there to now. Yeah so Brief history I met grew out of the devastating losses from the terrorist attacks of nine eleven The attacks exposed glaring weaknesses in the communication systems. self-service spotty Countless emergency response teams couldn't communicate even using their their trusted Radios hand held radios And any first responders lost their lives so congress established the first responder network authority and charged with building. A nationwide purpose built broadband network. Just for first responders so the first responder network authority put out an rfp and contract at at and t. to build and deliver this Innovative ecosystem called. I met so first. Night is the nationwide wireless communications ecosystem designed with and for first responders and those who support their vital efforts. Meaning that could be Healthcare workers utilities Continuity of government key faculty and in at a k. Through twelve or a higher. Ed school building. So it's it's the network first responders have been asking for with priority and preemption unprecedented security A commitment to expand rural coverage This means first responders connect i. It's priority access on the network. So let's talk about how. I actually works in an emergency situation so First night is designed to keep first responders and their partners connected with the voice text and data video services that they need so they can focus on what's important so A couple of examples with first night you get access to a dedicated deployable for a crisis situation or a plan to vent meaning if a structure if a cell tower was taken out of service i e customer can can request a fat cl or a sell on on my truck a satellite truck We have a fourteen hour response to operation commitment. So from the time that that request comes in we have fourteen hours to be onsite and end up and running I know especially with all the hurricanes coming up through the gulf This year our response operation group has been extremely busy and so while there aren't a lot of hurricanes in northern kentucky and we are dealing with a lot of what if situations I is committed to that emergency. Emergency response Even when unforeseen events affect the the network infrastructure so this is obviously nationwide how the scope how many agencies organizations are we talking of involved with this. We have seventy two colt strategically located throughout the country. We have three drone tethered drones. That can be put in the air to provide coverage and we have we have one blimp which is called. I met one of course because asked to have a name. So even an example there was a train derailment in eastern kentucky earlier this year and there was Spillage of chemical into the river and this is on the back side of a mountain in eastern kentucky so there wasn't any coverage there so State police and the environmental emergency response team requested a to provide coverage for those that. Were going down to the crash site and and helping helping still and helping clean up the the railcars so that was a local example of a call that was made for a cold here in kentucky. Let's talk about that a local aspect. Obviously this is nationwide. I met is you are here in Ignore the kentucky area. What's the importance of being here. And also being a member for this big company to be a member of the northern kentucky chamber. Well i know that You know you're right. I is built for all public safety. That means every first responder in the in the country career or volunteer federal tribal state or local urban suburban rural And again that includes those that support first responders. Emergency response situation Triaging the crash site Communications with police during an active shooter situation at a at a school Road crews and utility workers on the scene of disaster so also reaching rural and remote parts of america is one of our top priority. So you think all lt eighteenth. At and t. l. t. bands and be fourteen spectrum which is awarded to us as part of the first night contract. I met currently covers more than two point. Six one two point six one million square miles in two thousand nineteen alone. We added more than one hundred and twenty thousand square miles of ltd coverage. And i was told that that's roughly the size of new mexico. Wow to to put it simply been. We've been busy giving more first responders in the community communities. They served to access the critical communication capabilities They need so we aren't stopping there. Were actively extending the nationwide reach of. I met to give agencies large and small reliable unsettled. I should mention that can activity and the modern to well. We're glad you're part of the northern kentucky area so much for taking time with us today to explain such an important thing. Garner the mini. This new was happening when a wonderful thing.

"Where is this what does it look like for Not just looking for work but those who are looking for employees as well you know. I never seen of the workforce environment so Upset i guess maybe the best word right now Somebody who knows These things told me the other day that there are five thousand job openings in northern kentucky right now and I have a son who lives out in the boon canning out drive through the industrial art. And you'll see banners on the side mu via in osh they're offering signing bonuses to get people to come to work right now. We have amazon coming into town of. That's a that's a an interesting development. We have covert. We have a lot of people who are laid off so it's it's a very Kind of mixed bag right now. So it's it's harder employers to navigate But i think we really don't want to take our eye off of this allen pipeline management because that effort is really employer driven. It's employer spinally saying in having a vehicle to say you know in the next three or five years we're going to need x. number of nurses aids your hospital or a nursing home or you know an automotive distributor needs so many welders or whatever so we plugged that in it's data driven. We collect the data and then we get with what we call them. The providers might be gateway or commerce more northern kentucky university or other worst providers to let them know train these types of jobs. Because that's what we've been a need so we've had a problem in the past were. There's been a gap between you know what type of person we've been graduating with skills. They come out of school with and the jobs that are available. So i just see that effort is incredibly valuable It's already paying dividends and as we get more and more employers used to that kind of effort in seeing that it works And can work through them. I think we're going to be at a much organization that the having dealt with the entire state. Where where do you see northern kentucky. you know. we're very lucky to have a lot of higher education institutions. That's not always the answer for every workforce a problem And like you said getting into the high schools and things like that. How are we doing as a region in developing that workforce. Well i mean. Northern kentucky has been a hotbed economically for for years now and you tend to outpace the rest of the state when it comes to economic development by a bit. You're one of the probably the hottest markets that we have as far as economic development is concerned into mark's point in even in the of kobe the talent i mean we i think we think of all the economy is down in for some cases that is absolutely true with there are employers that are screaming for talent right now and we have to keep in mind that the workforce is continuing to shrink and so these issues will not go away. We just have less kids than we used to. And people out firstly Covert are like by. I'm retiring i am done. And so we can't take our eyes off the ball. If you think about the economic development growth that kentucky has has experienced you think about major companies like amazon coming in to northern kentucky..

"How can you help folks and businesses alike. Yeah i think words mark. I'm the number one issue of the day for businesses. Always workforce is workforce or course workforce in that that's with the economy booming or in times when we were in one of the greatest recessions that we've ever had back in twenty two thousand ten. I mean it's it's always workforce but it's what you do about it that really matters and so wicked workforce center at the kentucky chamber. We've got several different programs at our portfolio that can team but runs from the workforce center so one of the things we do focus is on its program called bus business and your that's an initiative that the board really came up with we had a little bit of a budget leftover surplus and we ask board. What do you want to do with this money. And mark and his peers around the table said we need to get involved with schools. Business leaders need to get engaged with schools. We have got to get these kids earlier before they get out. And so that senators pilot initiative last year we had twelve hundred students across the state go to businesses on wednesday tore those different career pathways that were available and now this year in lieu of covid is all virtual program and we've got thirteen thousand students already in the first three weeks of the of the program we're going to host it all year long Get students really engaged.
