About this Episode

We’ve seen it happening more and more lately, and it can be heartbreaking to hear about float centers closing their doors, but tonight’s special guest brings some hope and an amazing spirit about closing the doors to his center. Carlos Casias of Float Los Alamos recently announced that he’ll be shutting down his operation after about four and a half years of ups and downs. He talks about the struggles his center encountered last year, and how they had big plans to restructure, rebrand, and relaunch… and then a pandemic hit. He battled the decision to continue taking on more debt or to “be selfish” and stop the financial crisis that was beginning to grow. He talks about all of those moments of realizing that bankruptcy is on the horizon, but how it is now going to be a relief, not the gloom and doom one would expect, as he begins to see a glimmer of hope after investing all of his time and energy into running his center, a two-person, two-tank dream for the past few years.
