What John Wick can teach us about the coming recession

For anyone who has seen John Wick there are a few things that stand out regarding economics and jobs. For one there is the obvious gold coins that are used for all purchases regarding Continental interactions and while these coins seem to be used for just about everything there is a universal acceptance for this currency.
In the first John Wick we see him dig up his stash, the never open unless it is an emergency, box of goodies filled with gold coins and of course guns. These are his tools of the trade and like some Americans in the coming months they will have to dust these off if they plan on making it through the recession and keep all of their shit. Some say that cash is king but let’s admit it with the way the federal government is run and inflation always on the horizon is there any reason not to buy into something tangible like gold and silver? This movie could have taken place in the book of Eli and Wick still would have had enough money buy Mila Kunis and kill all of Gary Oldman’s goons. Gold can be transferred anywhere. t literally is the safest thing beside the US dollar that a person can invest in.
John Wick has a special skill that everyone knows about. It pays to have a talent. When you are the only person that can fix something, people call you. Thing works for plumbers and hitmen. If the job is something complicated and needs to be done immediately you call the best. John wick has that talent. Be the best at your profession. When times are tough people are not willing to throw their money at a maybe. They want results and something that won’t cost them more in the end. If you are a plumber, be the John Wick of plumbers.
In John Wick Chapter 2, he takes a job that he doesn’t want to do. This may happen to many people that are out there in the job market. Jobs that you don’t want but are necessary for your profession come along and you will have to do them whether you like it or not. Be brave, be bold, and cap an ass or two if need be, but get the job done.
Shit will get real. When the recession hits people will be job hunting and things will be limited due to hiring freezes and people wanting to pay less for the most common work. Expect assassination attempts at your reputation. Reviews might come up on google and yelp saying “John Wick sucks at plumbing” and suddenly you are being hit from all directions. You are the best at your field and you are a threat to the rest of the plumbers trying to find work. It sucks but you must battle through proving you are the pipe cleaner of everyone’s dreams while others are trying to prove you wrong. Stick to your guns and keep gong cleaning out the competition.
So, what did we learn from Mr. Wick? Diversify your savings into something that holds up when the world goes to shit. Who is going to turn down a gold coin, free from taxes and inflation? Keep up on your skills and tools. Keep up with your connections because you don’t know when you will need them. Keep people loyal to you around when times get tough, even if it is a dog. Call upon those that owe you and won’t let you down. Do jobs that you normally wouldn’t do, it will pay off in the end. Don’t let anyone screw you over. Above all else, if someone hits you below the belt, take them out.
