Recession Proof: Fact or Ficition

By | JIFU Success, JIFUlife | No Comments

We’ve all heard mutterings of industries that are “recession-proof”, but is it just a rumor with no merit? Let’s explore the industries and markets that have been able to thrive through historically difficult economies.

Essential Industries (Investopedia)

Food + Grocery

While this is a huge industry, grocers are a necessary part of our society. As we saw in 2020, stores were protected and even required to stay open. According to Investopedia: “Besides discount stores like Dollar Tree and Walmart, which are major grocers, several other companies that make or sell food also made the list. They include packaged food company General Mills, Inc., grocery store chain Kroger Co. (KR), and also restaurant chains McDonald’s Corp.”

Freight

As the market continues to become more internationalized, freight and logistics increase in importance. A few corporations that saw positive returns during the 2008 recession include:
Old Dominion Freight
Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies
C.H. Robinson Worldwide

It is important to work with other professionals, your team, and leaders in your industry to continue bettering yourself. By staying up to date on the newest technologies and movements nonmatter how long you’ve been in the industry, you will always be in the know. 

Prepare for obstacles 

Even the best and brightest business people run into roadblocks along the way. The ones who make it through the hard times are the entrepreneurs who prepare for it before it comes. Obstacles are inevitable, but preparation is necessary for any market. 

Seek new perspectives

It can be easy to be stuck in a consensus bias feedback loop. This happens when the only people you are receiving feedback from are people who think and act as you do. By seeking new perspectives, your business will become more resilient.
