Resiliency, recovery, and reinvention. These terms readily come to mind for many business owners in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, the ability to learn from mistakes, to rebound successfully after an unexpected setback, and to persevere through hardship has long been necessary for any successful entrepreneur.
On Tuesday, July 27th, join me and my guest, Sam Liebowitz of TalkRadio.NYC, as we discuss the lessons Sam learned over the last 25 + years as an entrepreneur, startup, and business owner.
We will discuss how to cultivate an attitude of resiliency, perseverance, and gratitude in the face of hardship. A great opportunity for business owners looking to revitalize their business!
0:30 – 13:58 – Today’s guest is Sam Liebowitz of TalkRadio.nyc who is an entrepreneur and business owner. He has been in business since around 1993 and has owned multiple other businesses. One of his main goals is to assist people to have happier lives and believes one learns a lot more from their setbacks than their successes. Sam transitioned to the video industry after getting his start in IT which was a bit of an adjustment. Eventually, he overcame his rough time and settled into a managerial position at his new place of work. He also used to be a part of a company titled Media Blasters that was very successful but Sam and his partner ended up parting ways because he did not feel like a true colleague.
16:27 – 30:53 – Many times in life, people are afraid of failure so they do not try. It could be in business, romance etc. Sam took risks on his business adventures and was not afraid to fail. Furthermore, Sam discusses experiences he has encountered. Not everyone is going to be nice and it is important to not let them affect you. Also, he reflects on a time when he got in a heated argument with a business partner which resulted in phones being slammed and the partner leaving the business. Later, a lawsuit took place. The fees for Sam were around 10,00 dollars. The two had to make a settlement which forced Sam to give up a percentage of the company. Now he confesses that if he did not get angry with him, the situation could have gone differently.
33:20 – 43:17 – There are some lessons that are learned through mistakes while others just get picked up. It is very easy to make mistakes in the workplace. Sam states that it is a mistake to not have a mentor who can be looked up to. Mentors have helped him a lot while he was growing his business along with himself. Sam is known as the Conscious Consultant and people usually come to him because they know he is very intact with the personal and conscious part of business. He also has a show on TalkRadio.nyc where he offers his advice to his viewers and guests.
45:49 – 57:08 – Next, Sam says that not everything is going to go as planned. Something bad may occur right after the situation seems settled but it is important to adjust accordingly. When the pandemic hit for Sam, he was very used to being in the studio but did not resist the need to switch to remote operation. It was vital for him to adjust. Life is always going to throw curve balls but the reaction is the most important. Sam believes that every experience is a spiritual one. It is important to believe in oneself and be open minded which would lead to less stress, anxiety, and tension in relationships.
About Employment Law Today
Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.
For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again. On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.
The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.
Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
