“You have to prepare your kids and give them the courage to do what’s best for themselves.” – Jimmie Bell
So much insight, self-reflection, and inspiring advice in this episode. Jimmie tells stories of:
- a non-violent end to a conflict
- teaching kids to value themselves
- being presented with something that has nothing to do with you
- communicating with the important people in your life
- understanding the consequences of your decisions
- how to fight through fear
- you deserve “this”
- realizing who you are
There are individuals we come across in life that have an immediate impact. For Nate Oliver and now me, one of those individuals is Jimmie Bell. And we hope now you. By listening to this episode, you will understand what Jimmie Bell means by the question he asks his own daughter: “Why are you with people who don’t value you?”
Jimmie Bell (JB) deserves to be heard — he needs to be heard. And we hope you will listen to what JB has to say. We promise you will be affected by this conversation no matter your background.
While this is “Buckeye Focused”, a buckeye here and a buckeye there spawned this conversation. But this conversation goes way beyond football and buckeyes. I’ve always said “sports bring people together” and this episode proves that.
