With the COVID-19 Pandemic’s perennial presence, many business owners and entrepreneurs may be feeling discouraged, worried, worn down, or simply unmotivated. Sometimes, the best way to get psyched up (not psyched out) is by inspiration: we witness someone else’s tenacity, hard work, and success, and think, “if they can do it, maybe I can too.”
Cue the introduction for my next guest: Jeremiah Fox. Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, Jeremiah has been running his restaurant, gathering guests for his TalkRadio.NYC show, “The Entrepreneurial Web,” and keeping his entrepreneurial and creative projects going.
Join me on Tuesday, October 27th, as I ask Jeremiah to share his insights on running a successful business during the time of Coronavirus – including how he has adapted to the current business climate, what motivates and energizes him in the face of the adversity that so many businesses are now facing.

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.
