Compelling NarrativeGood morning.
Bitcoin prices continued moving higher, nearing $54,000 in trading on Friday.  Companies related to the trade have likewise been moving higher as well.  Based on the current price and number of Bitcoin outstanding, a new milestone has been reached.  The currency now has a market cap of $1 trillion.  That’s a 1 followed by 12 zeros.  That’s proof positive that the cryptocurrency space is here to stay.
We like the space, both for the trading opportunities in cryptos and crypto-related stocks, as well as the longer-term prospects as fiat currencies like dollars and Euros continually get printed.  But we want to know your take as well.

Do you own any cryptocurrencies directly?  Are you trading companies in the crypto space to profit from this latest trend?

U.S. Manufacturers Grapple With Steel Shortages, Soaring Prices –Rajesh Kuman Singh
U.S. steel prices have risen more than 160% since last August.  “We’ll be lucky if we break even at this price,” said Stuart Speyer, president at Tennsco…

Fed Chair Jerome Powell says the true unemployment rate is actually 10%.  Official number are so skewed by fraud, reporting error, and double counting…

Instant confidence?

You Know WhyWell, it is possible.

Here is how.  When prospects start making quick “yes” decisions, we feel great.  And it shows.
But how do we get our prospects to commit and say “yes” fast?
Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter’s latest book, “10 SHORTCUTS Into Our Prospects’ Minds” explains 10 simple strategies to make prospects eager to join our business.  It is all about getting the correct message inside of our prospects’ brains, and bypassing all their other issues.

My favorite strategy?

Strategy #5: “Emotion is our prospect’s friend.”

Emotion can work for us or against us, but without emotion, nothing happens.  And yes, it is the biggest chapter in the book, because there are so many uses for this skill.  Want to see an example of adding a few emotional words to help with an objection?

Objection:  “I don’t think I should start now.  Things are not looking good at my job.  I need to conserve my cash.”

Us:  “I would be scared too.  You have all your eggs in one basket.  And your job and boss control the basket.  That is a horrible feeling.  You don’t look like the sort of person that likes taking big risks.  Let’s start a second income now, so if your job goes away, you w0n’t lose 100% of your income.”

That was easy.  And what if this prospect went on to earn you hundreds of dollars every month?  It certainly would be worth using this strategy.

How about one more example?

Could we use an emotional micro-story to help eliminate our prospects’ procrastination?

Watch this: …v i d e o… 

Us:  “My neighbor could have joined the same day I did, but did not.  My neighbor will never be able to forget that happened.  Every day when he leaves for work, he sees my car parked in the driveway.”

Our prospect does not want to be like the neighbor.  It will be hard to forget this story.

But Strategy #5 isn’t the only strategy.  Here is the list from the book:

  • 10 ShortcutsStrategy #1:  No dumping allowed!
  • Strategy #2:  Questions.
  • Strategy #3:  What is better than questions?
  • Strategy #4:  The science of short.
  • Strategy #5:  Emotion is our prospect’s friend.
  • Strategy #6:  Handling objections.
  • Strategy #7:  Use analogies, similes, metaphors & examples.
  • Strategy #8:  Patterns become smooth pathways for our prospects’ minds.
  • Strategy #9:  Our biased prospects only hear part of what we say.
  • Strategy #10: Stories are irresistible.

Anyway, the latest Big Al Book, 10 Shortcuts into our Prospects’ Minds, is here, ready to order:

Also, please let your team and networking friends know about this book.  They will love it when their prospects start listening to them.

Thanks, and enjoy using this book to build your way to a bigger business!

Good Will HuntingOne of my favorite clips from a movie, is from the movie ‘Good Will Hunting.’

And in Good Will Hunting, you have (actors) Matt Damon and Ben Affleck … they are best friends.  They are construction workers!!!

But, Matt Damon’s background is really … a math genius … his genius [IQ] is right off the charts … his ‘smarts’ blows away his college professors.  He’s a next level Einstein.  My favorite scene … the best part!!

Ben Affleck, every day, drives up to Matt’s house…  Picks him up, and takes him to the construction job.  On this one day, Matt tell Ben… Yeah know, I’ve been getting all these job offers… they are wanting me to do Military Intelligence, Space & Top Secret Government Research and such… stuff like that!

Matt says he’s not interested … I love you guys … just want to work with you guys!

Ben Affleck, being a true friend says … I gotta tell you … every day I drive up … I hope you’re not here!

Matt replies, confused … he says, “What you talking about man?  Dude … you’re my buddy!”

I know my buddy … but … I don’t have your potential.  I don’t have what you got.  ‘For you to waste it … breaking rock with us … it’s a shame.’  It is just wrong!  I love you too.  And, for as long as you are here, I’ll pick you up, and we will go to the construction site…

…but every day I hope you’re not here!

THAT IS A FRIEND.  Ben isn’t selfishly controlling Matt and putting him in a box that serves himself.  Ben would undoubtedly love to be best buds.  But that would be a shame … on him … as a friend.  🙂

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
