John Meese is a serial entrepreneur and author of the newly released book, Survive and Thrive. My friend Paul Martinelli said you can have three perspectives in the world: the historian who is focused on the past, the reporter who focuses on the now, and the futurist who looks toward the future and tries to predict what will happen. John is without a doubt a futurist.
In this episode, we have a good conversation about where he sees things going (especially post-pandemic) for all businesses. He relates the shutdown to 9/11 because things will never be the same as they were before. We have new insights — which is information through the filter of experience, and new problems that need to be solved.
We also talk about selling his home, his coworking space that was open for only 58 days before the executive order closed everything down, and his plan to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro in October.
Listen in as we discuss:
- The three crises that were happening during the shutdown: health, mental health, and economic — and how John coulld help with the economic crisis.
- Creating real solutions to real problems for real people.
- The shift from the age of information to the age of insight.
- Survive and Thrive: How to Build a Profitable Business in Any Economy (Including This One)
- John’s website
- Coworking space
