Welcome back everybody to the Cashflow 2 Freedom Podcast! This is your host AJ Osborne and I’m super excited to bring this episode to you guys.
Today I have the pleasure of sitting down with my long time friend Dan Rockrohr. Dan owns and operates a bar here in Boise Idaho. One of the major issues going on right now across our country is COVID. COVID has impacted many businesses and economies, but it’s hit the hospitality industry harder than most. That’s why I wanted to bring Dan in today - to talk about what he’s experienced, what he’s seeing, and what the plans are looking like for the future.
We dive into issues today that so many other business owners are having to tackle and overcome. We also share the measures that Dan and other businesses have taken to try and work with the local governments as opposed to working against them, all in an effort to begin moving things forward. So many businesses have and will go under due to the current events we’ve experienced.
There’s also the glaring issue of the COVID pandemic being politicized and exploited. There are cleary a number double standards that business owners have experienced when they’ve been shut down, classified as non-essential, and so forth. All the while, larger corporate companies operating in similar fashions are allowed to keep their doors open, are classified as essential, and simply follow the guidelines put into place.
Speaking to this, we also dive into the importance of diversifying you businesses and/or sources of income. You never know when something like COVID will happen and being divers across your holdings will help to ensure that you don’t lose everything you’ve worked so hard to build.
We cover all of this and more in today’s episode. Listen in, see how things are going on the ground from the source itself.
Thanks for listening everybody,
