“It is important for business owners to maintain a good work-life balance, and parameters such as knowing the state of your health, creating an enabling environment for yourself and having annual wellness checks on your organs such as your lungs, livers, kidneys and all is very important for you as a small business operator, Adeyinka stated.
On his part, Ekerette advised customers and business owners to be intentional in ensuring that they are physically fit, adding that “Eating right, resting and exercising should be a part of every entrepreneur’s daily life,” he noted.
To Adeolu, business owners should understand that their health and wealth have a lot in common and should both be treated as top priority. “If you are not physically fit, you may not be able to make good financial decisions in your businesses,” he said.
