This week, I wanted to tackle a huge question: "Is this the end?"

Spoiler Alert: No. It isn't.

We're dealing with unpleasant realities at this time. Tune into the news, and you hear things like:

  • Recession
  • Inflation
  • High Interest Rates
  • the Labor Market
  • the Great Resignation
  • Bear Market
  • Supply Chain Shortages
  • War in Europe

It's important to realize that the news media is in the business of selling fear. I don't mean to vilify the media...Fear is what we buy the most of, so that's mostly what they sell.

But, how bad are things, really?

Let's take a few minutes to break down where we are, how we got here, and what's next.
