Winning when the environment sucks

The world is a chaotic place, a paradox of beauty and pain. The happy parts are easy and don’t require much thought, but when a bad situation comes along (and it will), are you ready to face the turmoil?
It’s in the tough situations that we have to make the decision as to whether or not we’re going to take control of the situation or let the situation take control of us. An entrepreneur who blames his environment, will fail. But the entrepreneur who takes control of how they respond and react to the situation, they have the best chance of business survival.
Join Allon, Kumaran and Mark in episode four of the Deep Dive podcast series and they discuss the psychology of winning when the environment sucks. Listen now.

And, when the pandemic is over, will everyone have to pivot again? Mark Levy, Kumaran Padayachee and Allon Raiz offer insights into this topic so that you can decide for yourself.
