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.

United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807

I am so sick of the media speculating on what’s ‘about’ to happen and predicting the future these days. So when something actually happens it’s worth talking about. Learn more in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

Trump Loves Bombshells and So Does The Media

Moreover when it’s a bombshell that triggers uproar from all sides of the so called political spectrum, it’s news.

All About Trump

The president has been talking about declaring an emergency for weeks. In addition there have been rumors his unhappiness with a legislative compromise that netted only about one fifth of what he wanted for his ‘big beautiful wall’ on the southern US border. It’s been a spectacle. It’s about to become a most noteworthy example of a political dumpster fire.

Can He Really Do That?

Especially relevant is the question of whether the president can actually declare an emergency to build a border wall. Obviously the Administration thinks so. There are currently thirty states of emergency already declared by presidents going back to Jimmy Carter. This will be number 31. We’ll talk about in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

All About The Approval Rating

There will be court challenges and lots of and lots of news coverage. Here’s the thing. Immigration and the border wall is a good issue for the president. Already some polls have his approval rating over fifty percent. As to whether a wall will actually work? I guess that remains to be seen.

Big Spending Big Government Republicans

Lost in the shuffle is a new budget bill that substantially increases federal spending. With the national debt at 22 trillion and more than 100 percent of the nation’s GDP you could call Trump President Donald Baines Nixon. With this spending bill you could call him Donald Barack Trump. (Editor’s Note: I refer to the debt of the US as the Budget Deficit which is probably somewhere around half a trillion. The 22 trillion dollar figure is in actuality the total debt of the US, currently at about 105 percent of the country’s GDP).

So Long Suckas

Suddenly the guy many republicans thought was ‘conservative’ is taking fire from the right as well as the left.

Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans

These days when it comes to podcasting milestones should be marked. My first podcast was in 2009. It’s most noteworthy that I have supported myself with a single podcast since 2013. Learn more in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Eight Hundred Podcasts

First of all after eight hundred podcasts I’ve done just about every crazy idea I can think of. I have never had a problem creating content or finding things to talk about. It is a creative challenge to come up with fresh ideas and venues for each podcast. Something I take very seriously. Here’s the Dillinger Podcast. And, here’s the Bonnie and Clyde Podcast.

Content Creators Business Challenge

Especially relevant for podcasters is the business challenge we face as independent content creators. Sure, if you’re famous there’s plenty of cash and help to put up a successful podcast.

Hardscrabble Media

In contrast the people close to my heart are the independent creators. I like to think of us as the hardscrabble farmers of the media ecosystem. Find out how it is for us in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Blog Page For Podcasts

Finally there have been a lot of changes at the Bob Davis Podcasts since the first podcast. The blog page is a full strength resource with blogs and links to my research for every podcast. Moreover I have committed myself to refusing to endorse, or fight for a point of view when it comes to politics.

No Shouting

In conclusion I find the social implications of policy far more interesting than joining the crowd shouting at listeners and subscribers about what they should believe and what they ‘should’ do. Do whatever you want. Believe what you will and more power to you!

Future Fun

2019 and 2020 will be big years for this podcast. Once I reach business goals the fun begins on the road. More about that later. Thanks to all of you for your support, subscriptions, and listening and especially sponsorships.

You will never know how much I appreciate it.
