“You’ve got businesses that got destroyed, that have been around forever through this pandemic, now is not a time to sit back and collect cheques from anybody unless it’s you know you’re working or whatever. Now is the time to get out and do whatever you fu*king dream is, whatever your goal is, there’s never been a better opportunity than right now,” White said further.

Dana White has a message for the aspiring entrepreneurs

There are many budding entrepreneurs who want to work independently rather than being in office cultures. White has a message for those business aspirants. The UFC President believes this is the golden time for an enthusiast to go out and establish his own business.

“Right now is the time you run over all these fu*king guys that are sitting around crying and whining and bitching about their life. Now is the time. I don’t know if there’s ever gonna be a time like this again in our lifetime,” said the UFC President.

“But if you think you wanna go outside and start your own business, you wanna be an entrepreneur,you have this dream of something you wanna do, Now is the time. Go get it,” he concluded.

If a successful businessman of his stature believes that this is a great opportunity for business-minded people, one better believes that it actually is. This kind of advice from the UFC President is a very valuable input for younger aspirants.
