Renee Wyatt is the wife of Rich Wyatt and mother to four children ages ranging from 3 to 21. She helps run her family’s firearm business and stars in the Discovery Channel’s American Guns Reality TV show.
Hello Renee. It’s so nice to meet you. How are you?
Hi Debra. I am fantastic. Thanks. I want to start out by saying that I am a big proponent of getting a good night sleep. I believe everything we do is affected by the quality of our sleep. I really like what you do.
That’s great. I appreciate that. I have to start out by asking: Is it scary having all those firearms and things that can blow up near you?
No, not at all. A gun is a tool. Guns don’t kill people. Improper training is the problem.
What do you do to keep your family safe?
I teach them life skills. It is important to develop a sense of awareness. Be aware of your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right, get out of there. The best self defense is not being in a dangerous situation to begin with. Get yourself proper training. Be a difficult target.
One of our big goals here at The Warm Milk Journal is to live a well balanced life by day. How do you manage to raise four kids, run a large business,
and star in a reality TV show? I think a lot of us would be really stressed if we tried to do all of that.
Debra, I’ve become a master at efficiency. Time management, keeping organized, that’s what keeps me going. I like the sense of accomplishment that comes from completing my tasks.
You have a point there. Being unorganized, allowing things to pile up, and procrastinating is an invitation to stress and anxiety.
So, at the end of the day, what do you do to relax and pamper yourself?
Since we are on a television show I don’t watch a whole lot of TV. I do enjoy reading.
What book(s) would be found on your bed stand right now?
I am currently enjoying Gemma Halliday’s High Heels Mysteries
Thank you so much, Renee. It’s been so nice to meet and chat with you!
Same here, Debra, you’re so sweet!
An interview with Rich and Renee’s 21 year old son, Kurt. Kurt helps run his family’s business and plans to take it over one day. I asked Kurt some tough questions about violence in our communities, young people doing drugs, and how to encourage our youth in today’s tough economy.
