Among the people hit hardest by the emergence of the pandemic, small business owners are at the top. With trainings and conferences cancelled, in person meetings inadvisable, and both personal and corporate budgets locked down, many entrepreneurs were immediately thrown into survival mode.

Today’s guests, Maggie Gough, founder of Realize Wellbeing, and Kevin McAlister, founder of Lift Your Wellbeing, offer an inside look at how small business owners in the corporate wellness industry have been surviving this potentially devastating disruption.

In this episode, Maggie and Kevin share their initial reactions to COVID and the business pivots they had no choice but to make. They discuss how they were able to deal with the grief and nervousness surrounding these changes and what “aha” moments the pandemic has provided.

Both guests give their insight into looking ahead at 2021 and offer tangible tips for business owners on getting through.
