Close of Biz: Getting Through the Work Week

Close of Biz: Getting Through the Work Week

As the business world continues to adjust to new operating conditions, some executives who are currently working from home may have even more on their plate than prior to the pandemic.

This is one of the reasons why we wanted them to share what they do to relax after long work days, their favorite book and what the most gratifying part of their job is, which makes those long weeks worth it.

What is your favorite book?
Mike Regina
Principal, Big Sky Construction
The Bible is my favorite book personally and professionally. It’s a compass to help me navigate each day and provides the necessary business principles to build a business on.
 
Terriann Procida
CEO, Innovative Benefit Planning, LLC
The Four Agreements. The book provides timeless concepts for improved balance and emotional well-being, which we could all benefit from considering today's circumstances.
 
Billy Roberts
Executive Vice President, Brown & Brown Metro, LLC
Good to Great by Jim Collins. The principles and message in this book are extremely prevalent in how we live our daily lives, wake up in the morning and how we attack our day. Good is the enemy of great.

Program Director, Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association
The Pine Barrens by John McPhee.
 
Gabrielle Leonetti
Marketing Representative, American Asphalt Company
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
 
What is your favorite way to unwind after a busy week?
Mike Regina
Principal, Big Sky Construction
There is nothing more enjoyable than playing golf on a Friday afternoon, followed by getting pizza with the family to end the week. It’s Groundhog Day, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
 
Terriann Procida
CEO, Innovative Benefit Planning, LLC
After a busy week, I love to get in my garden to plant, seed and weed. I enjoy the beautiful end result of all my hard work.
 
Billy Roberts
Executive Vice President, Brown & Brown Metro, LLC
Sit in the backyard at the fire pit with a drink or two and recap the week, take notes on what needs to be done for the following week and then mindlessly read the news, a book or listen to an audio book.
 
Patrick Farley
Program Director, Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association
These days, it is watching far too much YouTube and planning a weekend hiking trip with my girlfriend. Preferably one that requires fun winding backroads to get there.
 
Gabrielle Leonetti
Marketing Representative, American Asphalt Company
Snuggling with my son, dog and husband on the couch and watching a movie.
 
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Mike Regina
Principal, Big Sky Construction
The relationships I’ve been able to establish with our team and clients. It’s what keeps me excited to get up every day.
 
Terriann Procida
CEO, Innovative Benefit Planning, LLC
First and foremost, the most enjoyable part of my work is being able to advocate for employers and employees. Knowing our efforts are instrumental in allowing them to achieve their health and financial goals is extremely rewarding.
 
Billy Roberts
Executive Vice President, Brown & Brown Metro, LLC
Working for everyone else as a leader and helping others realize that they can maximize their full potential through self-discovery and having grit. I’m an optimist at heart and I enjoy having a positive impact on the lives of others.
 
Patrick Farley
Program Director, Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association
The variety of projects I get to work on that have a positive impact on South Jersey. One day I could be working on a shuttle bus project that helps people get to work and the next day I am helping a town make it safer for kids to bike and walk to school.
 
Gabrielle Leonetti
Marketing Representative, American Asphalt Company
This is not really part of my job, but at American Asphalt we are always giving back to the community and I truly enjoy being a part of a company that helps others.
