What does tenacity and perseverance actually look like in the life of an entrepreneur during the pandemic? Join me and my spotlight guest, Stephen Petro of SPetro Lifestyle Solutions, when we discuss his journey as an entrepreneur, including his pivot during COVID-19, and how vital good health practices are for any business owner.
About Stephen Petro:
0:45 – 15:29 – Eric introduces his guest Stephen Petro of SPetro Lifestyle Solutions. He has worked as a researcher at St. Luke’s Hospital Obesity and Nutrition Research Center. His business assists people with health and wellness through integrative medicine and diet. As a teen he used these methods to address his acne and health issues. Stephen will work with individuals as well as their doctors to provide the best care possible.
18:23 – 29:48 – When the pandemic began, Stephen and his colleagues panicked because much of his business required in person meetings. He found that the zoom meetings actually saved him quite a bit of money. While much of the material for his company could be found online, there was an adjustment period when starting online classes. Prior to the pandemic, Stephen and Eric had their commute as part of the normal rhythm to their day. Stephen has had to make many adjustments personally and professionally due to this very new work environment.
32:35 – 45:37 – Stephen shares why he believes it’s important for business owners to maintain their personal health. Once the pandemic began their keystone habits changed. He recommends that people read Atomic Habits and The Power of Habits to better understand the impact of these changes. Changes in habits can have an impact on people both mentally and physically.
47:39 – 57:36 – Stephen helps his clients adjust their sleep schedules as well. A poor sleep schedule can lead ot unhealthy eating habits. He addresses the “calories in calories out” method of weight loss and asks viewers to consider, “Is weight loss the goal or a healthy body composition?” If you would like to know more about living a healthy lifestyle, follow Stephen at @StephenPetro411 on instagram and Twitter. Also connect with him on LinkedIn or Facebook under the name Stephen Petros. Very soon he will be hosting a seminar called Kicking the Sugar Habit.
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.
