Good times will probably not last forever in your industry, no matter how successful your business is. Plan accordingly to avoid the inevitable the pitfalls during a recession.

Being a founder, entrepreneur, or a business owner can have many exciting and thrilling moments. But it is also punctuated with periods of doubt, slump, and anxiety. So how does one successfully and healthily ride the highs and lows of Entrepreneurship? In this series, called “How To Successfully Ride The Emotional Highs & Lows Of Being An Entrepreneur” we are talking to successful entrepreneurs who can share stories from their experience. I had the pleasure of interviewing Murray Sabrin.

Murray Sabrin joined the faculty a Ramapo College of New Jersey in 1985 and retired in July 2020. In January 2021 the Board of Trustees awarded Dr. Sabrin emeritus status for his scholarly contributions during his 35-year career. Sabrin is the author of Tax Free 2000: The Rebirth of American Liberty, a blueprint on how to create a tax-free America in the 21st century, and Why the Federal Reserve Sucks: It Causes, Inflation, Recessions, Bubbles and Enriches the One Percent. His two latest books were published in 2021, Universal Medical Care from Conception to End of Life: The Case for a Single-Payer System. The single payer system, in Sabrin’s proposal, is the individual or family, not the government. Sabrin’s other book, Navigating the Boom/Bust Cycle: An Entrepreneur’s Survival Guide, was published last October.
