How to Stay Calm and Confident During the Worst Pandemic of Modern Times

It’s hard to believe that there is any sort of a bright side to the coronavirus pandemic. But if any two people can find that silver lining, it’s Tom Bilyeu and Noah Kagan. And on this episode of Conversations with Tom, they both explain how they have found positivity, confidence and even joy during some of the toughest times many of us will ever live through. They describe their processes for making every day a great day, the one simple tactic every budding entrepreneur needs to master, the conditions under which people should be willing to work for free, and how they have both learned to thrive in chaos.
