“Insurance is something everyone has to have – so what if we could just tweak it a little bit and use it as a vehicle for impact?”
– J.C. Wogomon
This week, we’re talking about insurance – sort of. Vicki and Kathy are joined by J.C. Wogomon, founder and president of Catalyst Insurance, whose search for meaning in his work resulted in give-back initiatives that elevate the human condition or support veterans and first responders. Topics of discussion include J.C.’s background; Finding meaning through work and making an impact where you are; Why J.C. is passionate about supporting first responders and military veterans; Sustaining a new business during the pandemic; How COVID-19 has impacted the insurance industry; Catalyst’s give-back initiatives to help elevate the human condition; COVID-19’s impact on people’s willingness to give; Customer reactions to Catalyst’s business model; Auto insurance rebates; Supporting local restaurants; Outcomes from Catalyst’s give-back initiatives; The biggest lesson J.C. learned in the first year of business; and his advice to those interested in using business for good.

Who’s Taking Care in Community this week:
Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana
Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana provides many valuable programs and services to Hoosiers in need – services that are needed even during a pandemic. The organization’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund was created with the hope to provide critical financial support for Goodwill to continue to support its communities throughout this crisis.
Up to $500,000, the Goodwill Foundation will match all COVID-19 Emergency Relief donations 2:1. You can help by donating, shopping at a Goodwill location near you, or by spreading the word about the relief fund on social media.
Thank you for taking care in your community, Goodwill!
