Episode 145: Creating The Optimal Brain and Mindset For The Next 90 Days, With John Assaraf

How To Thrive in Business Through The Covid-19 Pandemic.

Roland has been doing a series of live zoom calls on his Facebook page this past week. We shared his strategy for surviving in business over the next season in the last episode, so be sure to listen back to that. 

But today we’re sharing what Roland describes is ‘one of the most important calls he’s been on.’ Roland talks with John Assaraf, one of the leading mindset and behavior experts in the world. He dives into getting your head right amid this growing pandemic AND how to approach your employees and clients during this time. 

For the record, this call/episode was aired on March 21st, 2020.
