How To Keep Going When Tragedy Strikes! Thomas Kim, CEO Everclean
Play • 1 hr 5 min

As business leaders we try our best to prepare for the worst by mitigating risks…but what happens when tragedy strikes. How do you ready yourself for heart wrenching loss?  Thomas Kim, CEO of Everclean and his wife Evelyn had to face the death of their baby daughter, Mackenzie, while juggling the added stresses of running a business during the peak of Covid-19. Shattered by the loss of Mackenzie, Thomas says that on every given day what he feels is wonderful-terrible. An internal tug of war is their new normal as they find gratitude for their blessings in life while simultaneously helping themselves and others rise above the heaviness of their losses.

In this BwB Tv interview, Thomas shares the raw agony of losing their daughter to illness yet gifts us his deeply personal insights on his own growth and understanding as he and his wife move bravely through each day, grieving in their own ways while holding onto their relationship with all their might. It’s not easy, says Thomas, but with a bucket of physical tools in one hand and spiritual tools in another, he finds the tenacity to take the next step as a grieving father, a loving husband, a visionary entrepreneur and mentor of young minds.

During the months of his daughter’s illness and in the heartrending aftermath of her passing, Thomas still maintained a strong connection with his business. He’s created an extraordinary culture at Everclean that provides young Future Leaders with an opportunity for mentorship and personal growth. Through his business Thomas is giving life to the dreams of many young people who now have a place they call home and a future they’re excited about.

A deeply inspiring story that talks to the spirit of community, faith, compassion, great leadership and the power within to navigate even the most tragic losses.
