Robert Tercek is a Business Futurist, Technology Strategist, and Digital Media Pioneer. He’s an award-winning author with his book “Vaporized,” and he’s the former President of Digital Media, Oprah Winfrey Network
I asked him to come on and talk about two of the essays he posted on Facebook about the COVID crisis – which you should definitely read.
1️⃣ “You have everything you need within you now to survive & thrive” (strategies)
2️⃣ “Finding opportunity in the chaos” (predictions)
- We talk briefly about the current state of affairs.
- And the two things we have to make sure we do over the next couple of months
- Then we get into what the future might look like… for businesses and the economy, in general.
- We talk about the shifts in our preferences that will likely change everything forever
- And some strategies you can use to build your brand and differentiate yourself in these crazy times of uncertainty.
