Quarantine Learnings with Pete Hopkins of Planet Fitness Michigan Group

At the Positive Enterprise Value podcast we are trying a little experiment. I am going to do a handful of very short rapid-fire interviews with EOMs which I am calling Quarantine Learnings.

Why do this?

In the domains we work in, i.e., the Entrepreneur Economy, positive psychology, and behavioral finance, the future cannot be predicted; it is not knowable (unlike physics or astronomy for instance). No one living has ever experienced a viral epidemic or fear epidemic like the last 120 days.

Each of us has had to modify our lives and the businesses we own really quickly in the past 120 days. I’ve been inspired and exhilarated by Entrepreneur Owner-Manager’s GRIT, positive essence—in short, character—using this virus predicament to rethink or accelerate positive change in their approach to their marketplace and to Enterprise Value and Positive Legacy.

Today’s Quarantine Learnings podcast is with Pete Hopkins, Co-Owner / Founder of Planet Fitness Michigan Group.  Planet Fitness Michigan is one of the largest franchise groups in the Planet Fitness chain with over 50 gyms.  Planet Fitness is one of the fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the U.S. with a mission to enhance people’s lives by providing a high-quality fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment.  Listen here as Pete describes some of his learnings, both personal and professional, during the quarantine.
