Along the way, he challenges and encourages his audience to pursue living a life of significance, based on whatever “significance” looks and feels like to them personally.

What does a Recession Mean for Your Wealth, Today and For Your Future?

An economic recession is typically defined by a duration of time. In other words, one day or one week of slow or negative growth in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) does not qualify as a recession. In Episode 10, Kellen discusses what the parameters are for defining a recession. He also shares the typical duration of a recession (good news—they don’t last forever).

While the media is filled with speculations and claims that we may currently be in a recession, you may be surprised to learn that recessions are typically named retroactively by the N.B.E.R., which is the National Bureau of Economic Research. This data-backed fact is only one of many that Kellen shares with his podcast audience, helping them reframe their perspective and concerns regarding the current economy and come to terms with the prevailing question: “what a recession means for your wealth?”
