WS677: NAVIGATING UNCHARTED TERRITORY: Protecting Your Wealth from the Coronavirus with Russell Gray

Read more

The pandemic is having unprecedented effects on the financial system but with the right education, you can act smartly enough to withstand it. As the Co-Host of The Real Estate Guys Radio Show which helps empower individual freedom through financial education for effective action, Russel Gray’s teachings couldn’t be more valuable right now, and he joins us today to help us learn more about them. Russell has a diverse background in business, investing, mortgages, and financial services, and he kicks things off by giving listeners an idea of how he started educating himself about economics, discovered the power of real estate investing and syndication, and proceeded to share his knowledge through his show. We then take a deep dive into the weeds of the current crisis, and Russell sketches things out from a macroeconomic point of view. He explains how COVID created a health crisis which led to the equivalent of an economic heart attack, crippling the financial system and the dollar.

Ep 3 - Russell Gray - International Cornet Star and Conductor

Read more

Today on the Brass on the Mind Podcast I’m having a socially distanced cuppa and a catch-up with international cornet star and conductor Russell Gray to talk about the mental aspects of performing and in particular his Messanoic Method which focuses on creating a hive mentality in your band.

Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy as we delve deep into the mental and emotional aspects of performance and the benefits for satisfaction and success.

Thank you to Russell for all his wise words and valuable experience. You can find out more about Russell’s excellent Messanoic method over on his website at: www.russellgray.co.uk

The point of the Brass on the Mind podcast is to bring open and honest conversations about mental health and brass bands into the banding movement, so I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s instalment.

We all have mental health, we just don’t always like to chat about the lows as much as the highs, but with open, honest and non-judgemental chat we can help create a supportive and understanding environment in our brass band movement and ultimately help, encourage and retain our musicians.

For more information on mental health in brass bands, head over to www.modefor.co.uk or join the Brass on the Mind Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/brassonthemind

Together we can start the conversations about the taboo subjects, keep talking and sharing experiences for better mental health for all of us.

I look forward to you joining me again next time.

Much Love
