    How is Your Property Business Responding to COVID-19? - With Paul McFadden

    Due to the fast-moving nature of the global health pandemic that is COVID-19, this week's scheduled episode with Jay Turner has been postponed for a short period. That's a fantastic 2-part show that viewers will get a lot from, so keep your eyes peeled for those episodes being released shortly.
    For now, though, due to the current situation we have a special 'emergency podcast' bringing in Paul McFadden as a special guest to discuss the current climate that we face as people, family members, business owners, and investors.
    Watch today's episode to find out...
    > how the very real economic impacts from this health pandemic are NOT the actual global recession that Paul sees as still to come
    > how Paul views challenging times like these to test ourselves as leaders
    > the lessons behind thinking of the 'economic tides' being out and being in, and how they relate to the state of our business
    > how the key areas of Mindset and Due Diligence are what can help you thrive and survive in these times of uncertainty
    > how the current Government stimulus packages are very much required in the short-term, but also very damaging for the long-term.
