Downturn Turnaround: How to Navigate the Economic Headwinds of Covid-19 – Jay Abraham with Dave Asprey – #700

Making your way through cycles of financial boom and bust, recession, depression, and economic surges.

If you’re worried about the state of your finances, then this is the Bulletproof Radio episode you must listen to. Top executive coach, marketing expert, and $21.7 Billion Dollar Man—Jay Abraham—joins Dave for a candid discussion about financial health. Especially as the Covid-19 pandemic has blown apart the economy.

“Everyone is shell-shocked,” Jay says. “Even big companies are out of money.”

As Founder and CEO of The Abraham Group, Inc. (Los Angeles, California), Jay has dealt with virtually every type of business scenario and issue. He has studied, and solved, almost every type of business question, challenge and opportunity. He’s spent his entire career solving complex problems and fixing underperforming businesses.

“I have a broad perspective,” Jay says. “I’ve been trained to find opportunity at adversity.”

His forte, which is the ability to think “way outside the box” while thinking “way inside the box” too, is to prepare for multiple potential scenarios. This has enabled him to find (and successfully implement) creative, pre-emptive solutions in order to generate high-performance results. You can, too, even in this incredibly tough business environment.

“You start with nonthreatening, no-risk things, because every day, you could be putting into play one small revenue activity that can start monetizing for you,” Jay says. “They don’t all have to be winners and they don’t have to be big.”

This episode is full of useful and practical ways you can do something about your current financial situation. The opportunities are there if you let yourself think in new ways.

“What you can do from the base of what’s happened is transcendent,” Jay says. “It’s extraordinary if you allow yourself to transcend the limitations of how you have seen yourself—whether you’re a displaced employee, whether you’re a restauranteur, whether you’re an entrepreneur whose business has faltered, or whether you’re one that’s doing okay.”
