Gary Vee: 5 Things To Watch For The Next Economic Recession

Published

on

Back in 2008, we saw the greatest financial collapse in ages. Since that massive hangover, everyone’s waited for the next one to arrive.

Super entrepreneur and influencer Gary Vaynerchuk took to YouTube to list his reasons why one is coming…and coming soon. Here’s what he had to say.

No one knows the exact day, but I can tell you this for sure:

The economy is going to collapse. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not next year, but we’re not going to live the rest of our lives in a bullish market.

When the economy collapses, here’s what will happen…

He then listed five things.

1. The “Brand” Of Colleges Will Collapse

“I genuinely believe that student loan debt will tear down this economy,” Gary Vee says. “The same thing that happened to the banks in 2008 will happen to colleges during the next recession, and the conversation around colleges will change.”

2. Companies Will Be Forced To Be Smarter About How They Spend Their Money

Right now companies can test, try and explore tons of different ways to market.

“But when the economy melts, big businesses will fold because they’re overleveraged,” so sayeth the Vee. “And the ones that hang on will get their marketing budgets cut massively.”

So if you don’t know how to get lean, you’ll get eaten alive once the next recession hits.

3. Sales Will Go Down

This one’s fairly obvious. If the economy is down, that trickles down to your business. Alas.

4. Entrepreneurship Won’t Be Put On A Pedestal

Right now, the market is ripe for entrepreneurship. Lots of C-players are winning when they shouldn’t be, he says.

“When the world melts, people will get much more practical about how they live their lives, and entrepreneurship will be recognized as something hard. Not something that anyone can do.”

5. People Will Get Happier

These days, everybody’s trying to stunt for the ‘Gram, living fake lives.

“When there’s a correction,” he says, “everyone is going to get back to the right mental place and do what they actually love to do instead of chasing a fake lifestyle.”

Published

Dwayne Johnson’s earnings haul has been nothing short of scintillating. In 1998, at 26, he became the then-youngest WWE champion of all time.

Fast forward 20 years later, Dwayne Johnson’s wrestled his way to top of Hollywood’s food chain: For one, he’s the world’s highest paid actor. And he recently became the biggest draw in Hollywood history.

Johnson climbed the Forbes’ rankings to clinch the top spot as the world’s biggest star, trumping fellow actors like George Clooney and Robert Downey Jr.

The Rock’s scripted a superstar success story when it comes to entrepreneurship. After launching his production house with ex-wife, Dwayne soon expanded its operations to cover content strategy for social media platforms.

This big move helped them increase their global footprint.

Several endorsements, WWE stints and numerous action films later, Johnson now commands earnings of eight figures for films and shows. And his journey has only got more exciting by the day.
