Startup BizCast #48 – Great Depression Millionaires (Laura Posey)

During the Great Depression of the 1930s a large portion of the world’s population suffered as inflation ran wild and unemployment reached epidemic proportions. But, there was a group of people and companies that actually flourished during the depression, thanks to smart and innovative thinking. With the weak economy nowadays, we can learn a great deal from these Great Depression Millionaires.

  1. I loved this alot. I wrote a paper on the great depression. The professor was blown away, because i didn’t cite common reasons instead, I listed the reason the economy went south was due to lack of education and development.

    Bottom line the economy is booming, we are having a great sale and I am part of the next group of depression millionaires and I can’t wait! Whooo Hooooo!

  2. Hi Patricia,

    I’m so glad you enjoyed this one. I’m fascinated by history and was so happy that Laura agreed to come on the show to talk about this topic.

    Keep listening!

  3. I enjoyed your show and appreciated hearing someone who has chosen to give positive solutions to this current economy, and its”Opportunity”! I am the Guru of credit and helping families stay in their homes through loan modifications. I can relate when to Lauren Posey says that back in the Depression those who moved uop to the next level had a ” Different Type of Mind Set”! In today’s challanging times people can choose to focus on the problem and will miss out on the opportunities!
