Most, if not all, people can’t wait for 2020 to be over.

We all know someone who has been hurt by this pandemic and has gotten COVID-19.

Lost jobs and income, feeling isolated and disconnected, loneliness, and frankly, you just want to hug someone.

But in all of this darkness, there is light. We all want and need to heal!

Today, in this podcast, we explore the power of positivity. To find light in the darkness we ask that you dig deep to find something that you are grateful for and seek words of inspiration for the world for the coming year.

To help us do that, I’ve invited my friend Leilani Quiray to co-host this inspirational episode, along with a variety of people to share their stories of positivity.

Please join us for this unique 2020, hour-long Business Growth Cafe podcast event to help you heal and lift your spirits.

Special Guests: Charles Antis, Chase Boehringer, Wei Houng, Ric Franzi, Joe Martin and Dawn Reese.

We are experiencing a significant worldwide health crisis, the coronavirus which has killed over 200,000 people in the US at the time of this recording.  We now wear masks to protect ourselves from this virus, work at home, not socializing, and living more in isolation than ever before.

This takes a toll, even on the healthiest individuals.  But, it’s not just the current state we are in that is impacting mental health.  It existed long before the pandemic and will exit after.

Today a please to have Sally Spencer-Thomas here with us to discuss mental health in the workplace and home.  This is a timely topic as September is also Suicide Prevention Month.

Sally is a Psychologist and International Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Impact Entrepreneur and Keynote Speaker.
