Episode Breakdown


Acknowledge that we are in a recession

Dr. Peter Kim shares that everyone should acknowledge that we’re in a recession, meaning that things are on the downslope. He emphasizes that it is important to be realistic, to devise a plan, and take out some uncertainty around this time without being driven by fear.

“This fear can easily overtake you, it’s hard to escape it… when your focus and your mindset is in that state of fear, unfortunately… you don’t see solutions. You don’t see ideas, you don’t see ways to create more opportunities for you in the future.” — Dr. Peter Kim


Know the season you are in

Peter shares that instead of thinking purely of it as a recession with negative connotations, we can think about it as a season that we’re in right now, some call it the “winter season.” He continues by explaining that some seasons are great in the harvest while others like this one can be a preparation for what’s coming next.

“Many of us have set ourselves up for this type of opportunity where we prepared ourselves, educate ourselves, and we’re ready for this. So that’s where you have to start to see this as an opportunity. See this as winter.” — Dr. Peter Kim


Understand where your cash flow is

Dr. Kim reminds everyone that “cash is king.” Meaning that access to capital to either make investments or to keep your own investments afloat, are absolutely important. He recommends taking time to reflect by asking oneself questions like “do you know where your cash flow is, where it’s coming from, and if your job can withstand the season?”

“…It’s absolutely important for you to know all of that, because investment opportunities will come. And so we’re going to need to know where to pull the capital for that” — Dr. Peter Kim


Be in the right community

Dr. Peter shares how important it is to check the community you belong in. He stresses that it is necessary to keep in mind the network that you have, who you’re connected with, and know those who have been there before that will help you navigate these times.

“Who are those people that you can connect with that can help in terms of knowledge, experience, and confidence during this time? What community are you part of that stays in the know? Meaning that they’re constantly learning and educating themselves, a community that also plans for the future, that are like-minded with you, and that aren’t just going to pause or hold-up during this period?” — Dr. Peter Kim
