Barry's Column


A lot has happened in the last year or so. I don’t have to be specific but when you think about a few, such as the pandemic impact on our physical health and the healthcare system, how we work (if we work), how we education children, etc., and beyond the pandemic there was a presidential election, a change to single party congressional control, calls for police reform, social media oversight and content control, school board elections, protests and calls for racial equality, plus there's been some weird weather.

My point is that a lot has happened in the last year or so. Along with those events, came some other things too: anxiety, fear, depression, loneliness, stress, isolation, emotional upheaval, disconnection, behavioral coping changes, anger, frustration, and impatience, to name a few.

I think, without exception, that the mental health of every one of us has been impacted (for some, a significant impact) as a result. The “mental” aspect of our health is often not a focus and is often neglected, Many don’t realize that mental health issues often spill over becoming ailments affecting our bodies physically.

Business owners and operators have a “normal” high level of stress and anxiety with too much to do and too little time in which to do it.

I just wanted to encourage each of us to look at this aspect of our wellbeing. Pause, reflect, take a deep breath, and evaluate all the outside influences that are impacting your inside wellness. Put labels on the feelings. Remember that it’s natural to feel all the things we are feeling – it’s happening to all of us.

How are you coping with these feelings in your life? Some coping mechanisms are healthier than others. Which might you be turning to? Exercise, meditation, walking, talk therapy and medication might be better than over-drinking, yelling and screaming, smoking, using, gambling, or shutting down and isolating from the world.

Some things we can work through by ourselves or with a significant-other or friend. Sometimes we need to reach out to professionals to help us navigate through the rough road and potholes.   

My point is that a lot has happened in the last year or so. Are you taking care of the “whole” you – physical and mental?

Henrey Jetty started Veterans Home Inspection Services in 2009 when he got licensed as a home inspector.  He wanted to provide people with an unbiased inspection because he had horrible experiences with Real Estate agents while he as in the Army.  Henrey wanted to work for himself and set his own hours.

Henrey examines properties for damage, hazards, and other current or potential problems that may affect the buyer or seller during the real estate transaction.  This includes an onsite, in-person walk-about inspection with his clients providing suggestions to any issues they discover.  He checks the interior and exterior of each house, takes detailed pictures of each area, and documents any structural, functional, or safety issues he observes.  He evaluates all the major home systems, such as the foundation, roof, attic, electrical outlets, plumbing, and appliances - including the water heater - to ensure they meet modern building and safety standards.  He provides each client clear documentation of his findings in a report within 24 hours of inspection.

When asked what he likes best about his job, Henrey replies, "I provide a critical service enabling people to make the best choice with the largest purchase of their life."  Henrey enjoys inspecting different homes with different issues and appreciates building a relationship of trust with each of his clients.  His motto:  "Making my city a better place to live."

Outside of this service in the United States Army protecting our great country and in addition to participating in various Webster Chamber of Commerce events, Henrey is an active member of the Baptist Community Church in Pittsford and a member of the Perinton VFW.  He is also a member of the Greater Alliance of Realtors and teaches courses on Home Inspection topics to realtors and Home Inspectors.

Please join us in congratulating Henrey Jetty and Veterans Home Inspection Services as the Webster Chamber's August 2021 Business of the Month.
