This episode of the #RockstarsRocking podcast features my good friend, rockstar Kim Eckelbarger, Founder and President of Tropical Benefits, out of the Tampa, Florida area.

We open up our conversation today celebrating Kim’s amazing recognition as one of the five finalists for Broker of the Year by BenefitsPRO magazine and recognizing how and why she caught the eye of the industry. One of the ways she did this is through empowering HR Managers. From creating an HR roadshow to teach prospects how to be more effective in their duties and responsibilities, to teaching them how to communicate better with the C-Suite, to becoming an essential member of the decision-making team.

Beyond the day-to-day processes she puts into place, we also discuss the larger picture of her ethos and legacy. We talk about getting more women into the industry, how the industry needs to empower consumers to take charge of their healthcare and taking the step to sell her agency to focus on growing her legacy, while making sure her people were taken care of. Beyond her agency, she’s also putting together a local health care network to get employees quality care at little to no out-of-pocket cost.
