Take a day or two to analyze and scrutinize your business dealings, investments, and other key components of your portfolio. Identify pieces that carry more risk than you’re willing to take into a recession.
Generally speaking, diversifying your investments makes it harder to lose money. That’s because everything is less likely to drop at once, which happens when you put all your eggs into one basket.
Those gearing up for an economic downturn should start saving as much as possible. For instance, take the money from selling stocks and tuck it into a CD for the following year.
