Despite all the craziness going on in the world right now, there is also a lot of good going on. There are a lot of economies throughout the globe that have been on the upswing for the past 5-7 years. This means that job security has been off of a lot of people’s mind for several years now. So, why would you even need a side hustle? Why not kick your feet up every night, relax, and watch some Netflix?
It’s crazy to me to how quickly people forget just about everything, especially the bad things. I mean, just a few months I was in Germany drinking beers with some locals on a Sunday night (which made for a rough Monday morning). We sat around, joked, and just enjoyed the night. Rewind 70 years ago and one of the biggest wars in history was taking place and two of the biggest rivals were America and Germany. Yet, on that night, it was on no ones mind.
For war and other tragic events outside of your control, it can be both good and bad to forget. For bad things that ARE in your control, you should do yourself a favor and not forget.
Just 10 years ago the United States was going through a terrible economic recession
In the recession, well over 8.8 million jobs were lost, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
