The Tough Love You Need To Hear – Solo Show with Joey Gilkey

Jun 29, 2022

Today's episode is going to be more of a ramble than an interview, but I think you'll find it just as insightful and helpful. Today's topic: the Recession.

If you've been listening to the show for a while now, you know that I don't shy away from controversial topics nor ask you to follow other people's BS advice. That's why in this solo episode, I'm dropping my real, unfiltered, no-BS thoughts about the big R, a.k.a. the Recession. Whether you believe there is one coming or not, there’s no better time than a recession to go hard on offense and stop living in fear like everyone else. Find out how you can prepare for the big R so it doesn’t impact your business as hard as you think.

This Cast Covers:

  • How most business and agency owners shoot themselves in the foot when gearing up for a recession (01:40) 
  • What a recession really is and why you don’t have to be afraid of it (2:10)
  • Why having a “let’s go on defense and weather the storm” attitude is actually working against you and the economy (02:39)
  • Steps you need to take between now and when the big R hits that will have you making gains more than losses (04:20)
  • The one who takes ownership maintains control and takes power (05:20)
  • How to come out as a winner during the recession and why I get excited when the hard times come (07:46) 
  • Get your ship in order, take care of your ship (10:09)
  • The best way to invest in stability and growth right now (11:12)
  • Why you shouldn’t give a sh*t about what everyone else is doing and mind your own business (13:19)
