#90: Tactical Tuesday: How to Create Massive Opportunities during COVID-19


Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy Podcast talks about how to leverage the current COVID-19 environment to benefit your business. Jason discusses our current economy, which businesses will survive and which will be weeded out and how best to alleviate cash flow challenges. 


Episode Highlights:

  • Coronavirus infection numbers probably have skyrocketed due to increased testing. 

  • The stock market doesn’t accurately portray the market and is driven by emotions.   

  • A recession is when the GDP drops for more than two quarters. In a bear market, the market is down 20%. 

  • Some of the strongest companies have launched during recessions and depressions. 

  • Determine a business angle and take advantage of this time to better educate yourself.   

  • As a whole, the healthcare industry is quite safe so it’s a great time to start a healthcare business.   

  • Manage cash flow through accounts payable, accounts receivable and inventory. 

  • If someone owes your business money, pursue it through negotiation to improve your company’s cash flow.  

  • The government has the ability to do ‘quantitative easing,’ which is buying back bonds to print more money.

  • Look for business grants and small business loans to reduce your outflow of cash.  

  • Offload inventory with discounts and sales to get lean.  

  • Start networking to see who you can acquire as new staff and new customers. 

  • Find struggling businesses and help them in exchange for equity. 

  • Ketamine Academy and IV Therapy Academy are offering courses at 50% discount (see links below). 


3 Key Points:

  1. The stock market is just a measure of perception, public sentiment, fear, and greed.  

  2. Cash is found in three main areas for businesses: accounts receivable accounts payable and in inventory. 

  3. If you own taxes for your business, take advantage of the July extension to file and pay.
