“Don’t take yourself too seriously.  Be the person who brings joy, humility and fun,
even as you strive to reach difficult goals and make your difference.”
–Brendon Burchard

Today, let’s craft your sales message.
When creating your sales message, make the prospect feel that who (s)he currently is — or what (s)he currently has – is not good enough.  It is now your duty to let him feel the agony of staying at his current status.  Make him visualize the undesirable outcome for not making any change in his life.  There are many ideas in crafting your sales message, one of the better ones is the ‘use motivational triggers.’  If you can craft your message in a way that it appeals with one or more of the triggers below, you are more likely to get better results.  Jim Mitchell quote

  1.  Desire for pleasure
  2.  Fear of pain
  3.  Having, or saving more money
  4.  Prevention of loss of money
  5.  Attainment of excellent health and long life
  6.  Enhancement of relationships
  7.  The need for love, respect, security, recognition, and trust

Probably the biggest motivators are pleasure and pain.  Make him/her feel the pleasure of doing what you want or experience the pain of not doing what you want.  Between pleasure and pain, the avoidance of pain is much more of a motivator.  And to point out benefits of your product, show your prospect how it could make his/her life easier or solve his/her problem if (s)he owns or uses it.

People are afraid to make changes in their lives.  It is our job: To make them realize the negative result of staying where they are, then knock them down with the most attractive benefit of your product that will solve and end their dilemma.  😉

Day #11

Made over a dozen phone calls before noon today… many of which were disconnected or “numbers that are no longer in service.”  This could be for any number of reasons, however, I suspect it’s the ongoing tension, crisis, unrest, frustration (call it what you will), uncertainty in the USA & UK, (globally).  The Royal Bank of Canada, just announced, lowering the interest rate on 5 year residential mortgages.  Inflation is not the ‘banks’ only concern.

With all the interest in putting woman in charge, I reflect back to more women entrepreneurs than ever before.  Family first!  Women are in “increasing numbers” operating profitable at-home businesses, teaching our children and managing our homes, ‘all-the-while’ keeping budgets in check.  Many are off-to-work as CEOs and major decision makers.  This may be the only hope for our planet after all…  More Power to Women!  “We men” and our testos-terone have ‘screwed thing up’ very well, thank you!

Entitlement vs. Gratitude

Gold was up $18 over today … a good sign.  Swapped some stocks around!

Picked the “caddy” up this morning … “the service guys” gave it a wash and a new battery … and it only cost me $750.  Yes gratitude … I didn’t know any-thing about repairing it myself.

Entitlement gets us nothing but heartache.  It blinds us to what’s possible.  It insulates us from the magic of gratitude.  And most of all, it lets us off the hook, pushing us away from taking responsibility (and action) and toward apportioning blame and anger instead.  Gratitude, on the other hand, is just as valid a choice.  Except that gratitude makes us open to possibility.  It brings us closer to others.  And it makes us happier.

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
