(22:12) How To Plan For A Recession

Get your mindset right. A recession may be bad but if planned properly, it can turn into one of the biggest business opportunities. You’ll be able to grab more market share in a short period of time than you could ever do spending massive amounts of marketing. Go into a preservation mode, keep your business going, try to grow, but don’t shoot for those big numbers. This will be the greatest opportunity of most business owners’ lives if they get ready right now.

(26:03) Strategies For Your Money

If you put your money into a regular bank, the regular bank’s in control of your money. Imagine you had a place where you could put that same savings that you kept in a regular bank but you just changed one thing, and that’s where your money goes. Now you’re getting a guaranteed interest rate till the day you die, plus you’re getting dividends on that money. But the best thing is, you can purchase what you want to purchase but your money actually never left the account.
