Using economic winters to succeed

In this Gary Vee interview, Gary talked about how he has used economic winters to excel. Tony has often said that economic crisis creates breakthroughs. Why? Because a crisis forces us to take our minds off what we believe we are capable of and make massive changes. It ends procrastination and demands action. If you hesitate during an economic winter, you’ll lose. That’s the secret to being a disruptor instead of being disrupted: Making moves when everyone else is hunkered down and preparing to weather the storm.

Diversity is the key

Tony is a big proponent of diversity and this episode with Gary Vee illustrates why Gary feels the same way. Diversifying your investments reduces some of your financial risks and offers an opportunity to maximize your returns.  A diversified portfolio is a strong portfolio no matter what the economy is like. Need help making sure your investments are diversified? Consider working with a fiduciary or a financial coach who can help you make the right selections.

Adopt empowering beliefs

Tony knows that if you have limiting beliefs, you are setting yourself up for failure. This holds true in personal relationships as well as in business. In this Gary Vee interview, the entrepreneur and marketing guru discusses the three beliefs you must have when starting a business.
