Jake: Hey I’m Jake of Body by Jake with your motivational minute for today. I’ve got somebody very awesome. Pam Kehaly is president and CEO at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. Pam, it’s so great to see you. Listen, where did you get your entrepreneurial spirit? Because, you know corporate people are not supposed to be entrepreneurs.
Pam: So here’s where I got it from: I got it from my parents! When we were growing up we did every kind of side job you can even imagine. My mother and father had corporate jobs and then they would come home, we would do stuff nights and weekends.
We used to make carpet cleaner in our garage, we were always looking for ways to better ourselves. I made jewelry and we brought it to swap meets to sell. We were just did all kinds of stuff in addition to school and regular jobs.
Jake: What about exercise? Do you train in the morning, in the afternoon? There’s a great gym here. What do you do?
Pam: You know, I mentioned to you a while ago, I got a spin bike. And I’ve had it for probably about six months now. And I get up every single morning at 5:30….not every single morning –Monday thru Friday at 5:30 and I get on and I sweat my tail off. It’s the best!
Jake: favorite food?
Pam: When I go to lunch, I try to be healthy, then you order dessert, and you order three of them so you can try every one. You know, my favorite food, and I hate to admit is, is potato chips. It’s a weakness.
Jake: Now, do you have them at the office now?
Pam: I do! Hidden so nobody can see them!
Jake: I love it! Don’t quit! have a great day!
Pam: Don’t Quit!
Jake: Don’t Quit!
“Remember stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that you must not quit. Don’t quit! Have a great day!”
