Today's Devo Talks is all about staying healthy - physically, mentally, and morally during difficult times. Our guest Elias Rizk is the founder of ebCard, a Montréal company that helps businesses increase the quality of their lead generation and data acquisitions so that they can make a lasting impact on the customers they serve. Over the years, Elias has devoted his life to speaking on building relationships, encouraging small businesses, and teaching marketing principles to help companies excel.

During this show, we discuss some practical ways to thrive and not just survive, while we're quarantined at home and working remotely. The conversation is rich with anecdotal wisdom, useful tips, a dose of dad humor, and more! It's a bit longer than usual, but we believe it will be well worth your time.
