21 BUSINESS VIEW CARIBBEAN VOLUME 8, ISSUE 12 Julia Sutton, President of Exhale Enterprises, Miami Florida: “In 2020 and 2021, there has really been no time to be strategic. For us in the fitness and wellbeing industry, it’s like, ‘Ok, are we going to reopen in Atlanta, and how do we do that?’ So in 2022, I’m hoping there is a little bit more room for strategic thinking. Everyone on our team has been working extra hard because it’s really challenging to operate a brick and mortar location, and ask for proof of vaccines, and make sure everyone has their mask on, or whatever the protocol may be. So my wish is that in 2022 we can take a deep breath and get back to our original intention of: How do you continue to innovate when it comes to wellbeing? Hopefully, things will get easier for our team, so we can get back to truly serving and transforming lives.” Winston Neil, Managing Director of Jamaica Plumbing Supplies Co. Ltd, Kingston, Jamaica; “I’m looking forward to seeing the world get back together. No more COVID. Less violence going on in Jamaica and throughout the world. I’m 66 now, my staff are really doing an excellent job, this is the time I can jump on a plane or jump on a ship for a cruise without telling anybody that I’m leaving. I have so many points that I saved to use up, so my wife and I can go places – only with the condition that the world can really come back together, safely. And I hope that time is soon.” Power Question Bring on the new year! Business View asked a group of executives, “From a business and/ or personal perspective, what are you most looking forward to in 2022?”
