Jumpstart Tomorrow – Optimism in the New Future
Optimism is not a wasted state of mind when looking at a Post COVID-19 world.  Though all of time is moving towards an uncertain future, the past will actually play a key role in how the future might unfold.  Consumers will drive everything and confidence will be the only player of any importance. Stephen Harvill of Creative Ventures will show you a model where optimism is stronger than you think and the consumer will be waiting to decide where their money will go in jumpstarting a new tomorrow.
