Goodbye 2022 Hello 2023

Firstly Goodbye 2022 Hello 2023. Cue the fireworks for Goodbye-2022-Hello-2023-Bob Davis Podcast 1083.

Many Thanks

Secondly many people to thank for contributing and sponsoring.

Supporters and Mentors

In addition every year on New Year’s Eve I do a podcast and thank everyone who lent their support to help mentor me way back in 2009 when I started this podcast.

It’s Been A Year

Certainly this has been a year.

That is to say it was difficult.

Maybe It’s Been 2 Years

And it has been difficult going back to 2020!

Major Transition

Above all while I think we’re going through a major transition on many levels New Year’s Eve isn’t the best time to chronicle all that.

New Year’s Eve Is For Thank You’s

In fact New Year’s Eve is great for sending thank you’s.

Look Ahead

And a look ahead for 2023 travel and challenges.

Tough Times

To clarify the elephant in the room has been inflation.

For Nomads Too

Furthermore I’ve done more than a few podcasts about inflation and what it means for the nomad.

Economic Issues

Most importantly economic issues have made 2022 difficult.

Optimistic For 2023

I prefer to remain optimistic for 2023.

Challenges

In the same vein though I think there are economic challenges ahead that can be good and bad for different people around the world and the country

On the other hand this podcast will not be going into economic stuff too deeply.

Parties!

Because we have parties to get ready for!

Artistic Business Challenges

In short there are people to thank.

As well as some talk about running an artistic business.

Change Is An Ongoing Theme

To sum up 2022 has been tough. I’ve had to change how I travel.

Barnstorming

Certainly that means less barnstorming around the country.

Enriched

However my life has been enriched by relationships with other nomads formed because I was forced to stay in one place more than I would have liked.

Grateful

Finally there are things to be grateful for.

Maybe more so because of the kind of year we all had.

In conclusion change seems to have been a theme this year and is certainly on the horizon next year.

Happy New Year

Therefore Happy New Year.

Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

We are often our own worst enemy. This is an idea especially relevant to business owners. Financial and Business Consultant Todd Rooker and I talk about it in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Our Psychology Can Kill Our Business

Moreover these days wherever you turn for information you’re likely to get a prediction based on the past. It all adds up to preconceived notions and cognitive dissonance which can be fatal to a small business.

Perception Can Be A Reality You Don’t Want To Live In

Financial Consultant Extraordinaire Rooker says it comes down to business owners wanting what they want, when they want it. I think it also has to do with this habit of pundits and commentators everywhere trying to compare our time, to the past rather than the present.

Assumption Is The Mother Of All F-Ups

Consequently business owners need guidance. Its very easy to get off the path or the plan. Especially when we might not have had much of a plan to start with. We talk about all this in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Rooker Tells It Like It Is

Finally if you’re a business owner you won’t hear business being discussed with this level of clarity and authenticity very often. Rooker has worked with thousands of business owners over the years. When you add life and business experience, he has a lot of wisdom to share.

New World

Topics include the business mindset, cognitive dissonance and how to effects business owners, how different generations think about business overall, and our fast moving new world.

An Extraordinary Time

In conclusion I have certainly said over and over in these podcasts that I think we’re living through an extraordinary time. Never before have we faced the challenges we face. In addition we have never had tools with the power and scope we have these days. It’s a unique combination of factors we’ve never really seen before.

Despite the challenges it is a great time to be in business, as long as we don’t operate from preconceived notions.
