Standing Out In Erratic Economic Times

Are we in for an economic downturn given that we have had a record positive run for roughly the last 10 years?

I have no idea. I am not in the economic prediction business.

The only two things I do know are (1) change is the only constant and (2) people can still thrive in economic downturns (and these periods don’t automatically have to be lacking in achievements either).

So in today’s video, I am inspired by an article posted on the Bain & Company corporate blog titled, “Beyond the Economic Downturn: Recession Strategies to Take the Lead” wherein the authors talk about how leaders need to on the offense (you can find a link to the article below).

I realize not everyone will find this exciting, but those that want to be ready, for the inevitable economic downturn will watch this video.

And when the likely recession happens at some point, they will be ready as I will.

NOTE: this advice has nothing to do with politics, who is in office, or whether or not you agree with current economic policy.

It’s about winning no matter who is in office or what economic policy is being implemented.
