Season 2, Episode 36: Codie Sanchez on the Trouble — And Opportunities — Brewing in Small Business

Also: an assessment of the cannabis industry from an investing viewpoint.

Codie Sanchez of Entourage Effect Capital joins the podcast to discuss her view that wide swaths of the U.S. economy, those linked to small business, have yet to see many benefits of the post-COVID economic recovery.

Eventually, “the music will stop” and stock markets will see more sellers than buyers. To protect themselves, investors should seek recession-resistance sectors of the economy and try to access their own cash flows.
