Recession-Proof Your Life

Why Should You Listen

If you are planning to recession-proof your life, as an entrepreneur. Fortunately, that’s what this show is all about! There are so many methods and strategic tactics; however, today, we will focus on creating an additional income that could easily replace your full-time income. I had a chat with serial entrepreneur Trevor Crump, a partner at three direct customer brands, an e-commerce digital marketing agency owner. Not to mention all of these are side gigs to his CMO role for Fawn design. Somehow he still finds time to enjoy his wife, three kids, and love for golf.


That’s some serious time management. There are only 24 hours in a day!

After some tough sacrifices, Trevor has built a system to get it all done without the overwhelm and chaos.

Topics We Explored:

  • How to build a profitable side gig to help recession-proof our lives.
  • Ecommerce business ideas that creates a passive income with little upfront cost.
  • Building an email list organically and with ads
  • Learning from the competition 
  • How to have work-life balance while being productive. 
  • A sample routine to have time to do the things we enjoy. 

Recession-Proof Your Life, as an Entrepreneur

This show is different from any of the other shows in the past.  However, it won’t be the last of its kind. This entire show is dedicated to a listener’s question named Amanda, a single mom and Project Manager of 10 who is afraid of being a part of her company’s next layoff.  

“What can I be doing to protect myself? And it’s something that all of us should be thinking about is how you can protect yourself.” 

-Trevor Crump
