What is the Worst that Could Happen? w/ Rita Smith Road Warrior News Episode #91

Friends in the industry –

In today’s episode, I am excited for Rita Smith, owner of Road Warrior News, and a true industry advocate to come back to the Truck Focus Podcast, as part of our BUCKLE UP series!

During our conversation today, we dive into a coaching process, where Rita takes me through an incredible process on how to overcome worry, trouble, fear, and stress.

Throughout the conversation, Rita coaches me through how we can identify what is the worst-case scenario if what I am worried about came true, how to accept this worst-case scenario, so that way I can calmly work through how to rebuild after it occurs.

I believe today is an absolute must listen, as we all have worries and fears that we combat at one point or another, and we need to understand how to break through these and not allow them to hold us back.

As we prepare for future episodes, I encourage our listeners to ask themselves “what is it that I would like Josh and Rita to discuss, that will be valuable to me” and send me an email at with your thoughts. This way, we can incorporate it into upcoming episodes.
