    A Survival Guide For 2019

    How to safely navigate the 'Year Of Instability'
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, February 1, 2019, 3:24 PM


    With the bursting of the Everything Bubble, we declared last year as the 'Year Everything Changed'. This will be the 'Year of Instability', possibly preceding an upcoming 'Year Of Woe' in 2020.

    But look, we're not saying the world is the process of ending imminently. It's just that we've entered the part of the timeline when things are going to start to get really rocky.

    And we think it's much more useful to think of 2019 as the 'Year Resilience Matters'. It shifts the focus away from fear and instead towards the many things you can do to protect yourself and those you care about – and even to position yourself to prosper through the coming challenges.

    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris speaks on:

    • Reflections From Costa Rica
      • A reminder of what it means to be in Nature
    • The Public Is Hitting Its Limits For Oppression
      • France's Yellow Jacket protests are a sign of what's to come
    • Market Crash Alert
      • Things are getting weaker by the day
    • It's All About Power
      • The 1% will cling to their advantage as long as they can

    As Bob Dylan sang: The times, they are a changin'. From ecosystem collapse to social unrest in Europe, to faltering financial markets — change appears to be breaking out everywhere right now. A recent trip to the rainforests of Costa Rica has given Chris a little rest, rejuvenation and arm's-length perspective on things, which he shares in detail in this wide-ranging podcast

    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, October 2, 2017, 7:47 PM


    Michael Basta has worked in mental health for 30 years and is a certified Master Gottman Therapist. (Those who read Malcolm Gladwell's book Blink may remember the chapter on John Gottman, whose decades of research studying couples enables him to determine with 94% accuracy after just a few minutes of observation whether a couple will stick together or not.)

    In this week's podcast, Mike pinpoints the most common threats that can derail a relationship when it confronts conflict, and he shares the top success strategies that the Gottman Institute's research has identified for rescuing, repairing and strengthening relationships through adversity.

    These insights apply to nearly any relationship — your spouse/life partner, family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor. Anyone looking to live in better harmony with the people in their life should find the insights in this discussion of real value.

    by Adam Taggart

    Our mission isn't about helping folks amass more money. Or about becoming more "green." Those may be means to our ultimate objective, but they're aren't the end goal. What we're about is enabling prosperity.

    So, what do we mean by 'prosperity'?
