Jetting home after a tough working trip, Leo Pusateri watched the landscape, grateful to be returning to his family and familiar environment. A sudden change in altitude and a bright yellow mask bumping into his face interrupted those warm thoughts. Physical and mental state changed in an instant. There was a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. Thoughts about the future narrowed and changed.
Thankfully, he made it home OK. He arrived thinking some different things about his priorities and his business. He still has that oxygen mask. And he thinks the episode has lessons for us as we scramble to navigate this unprecedented time.
In this week’s podcast we have a deep and honest conversation with Leo about how the game is changing for business owners and how we can adapt.

In our conversation, Leo shares ten principles, designed to help business owners stay focused, add value and manage the stress of the current environment.

And we discuss what it means to ‘stay close’ and to innovate and pivot during these unprecedented times. It's a great conversation and we know you’ll not only learn a lot but take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone..
