For today’s episode of the Let’s Meet For a Beer Podcast, I met up with Don Saviak, President of All Beef Catering & Smokehouse. From living the life of a musician to being an entrepreneur and proud father, Don has an amazing life. On the podcast, we discuss the challenges of being a small business owner and how he has managed to survive through the past year of COVID-19. Oh – and I asked a mutual friend, Craig Sorette, to join us on this episode to lighten the mood.
Don has always been a hard worker who meets challenges head-on and seems to find a way to adapt and survive. When COVID-19 forced people into isolation, Don was hit especially hard as the demand for catering disappeared overnight. It was scary to think that someone like Don, who had worked so hard to build a business, might be forced to close down for good. But as you will hear on the podcast, Don has taken this time to restructure his company, and plans to come out of this stronger than ever!
Don’s advice to young entrepreneurs? “Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. From mistakes, you learn. From learning you grow.” It has been amazing to watch him grow as an entrepreneur and I’m grateful to share his story. Enjoy.
