Knucklehead Podcast Ep 128: Stepping On It As An Agent – Featuring Rob Rens


Losing a father, a husband, a wife, or brothers and sisters in combat is devastating. While the family is dealing with the pain of losing a loved one, what’s more difficult is to figure out, “what comes next”!

In today’s episode of the Knucklehead Podcast, Stephen will have a conversation with Rob on how he sets himself and his services apart from the norm and status quo, his knucklehead stories that impart tremendous lessons in his life, and how he helps military families prepare for the unexpected.

Rob Rens is the Owner and Agent at State Farm Insurance Agency. From his experience in Iraq with Personnel Retrieval & Processing Detachment, he realized that it’s impossible to completely eliminate risk from our lives. His new mission is to protect as many people in the community from going through what they did which is to be completely unprepared for what to do next when “it’ll never happen” happens.

“My first week in the company, I basically just came in and said to the president, “This is everything that you’re doing wrong”. That didn’t sit very well with somebody who had put her life’s work into that company. My boss was like, you really stepped in it, BIG TIME!”
