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?

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.  🙂

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
