“If you don’t have time to invest in yourself, you don’t have time for starting a business or anything else.” – Michael Anthony

Do you have what it takes to survive the economic seasons ahead?
Are you worried that the market will crash?

The good news is, you’re not alone and we have the answers and tools to help you navigate the current season you’re in and prepare for the next!

Brian Delaney is back from his trip to Tanzania and brings stories of his adventures! We learn what to do when a cheetah jumps on your jeep and how to enjoy the present.

We take a question from a listener about how to prepare for a market crash and for future economic seasons. We chat a little about Crypto Currency and I share about my investment strategy and how you can diversify, when the time is right.
