Jim Hindman (1)

Jim has started many companies, including Jiffy Lube. He has been in medical administration and a football coach and is now retired and is leaving his home on a horse farm to go to assisted living. The coronavirus has affected him in restrictions but his mind keeps going.

He has a great interest in struggling people and thinks about how he can be helpful. He feels we should encourage people to stay positive because everyone who is working contributes, regardless of the type of job they do.

In his hospital administration days, they had to find a way to steralize and keep everything healthy for each other. The first thing the administrator needs to do is to give a word of encouragement and remind them of how important their contribution is.  A message from their leader is so important for them to pull together with significant challenges. In coaching football, you have to share your philosophy in life.

No matter the size of the challenge, if we handle the small ones, the bigger ones can be mastered.

Listen to his life story on Community TrailBlazers, Season 2.
