Texas Got Hit HardGood morning.
Markets closed one of their toughest weeks in months.  For many traders, the pain is palpable.  But looking at the last month or six months, it’s clear that stocks have been in a strong uptrend.  Since nothing ever moves in a straight line, we’re still nowhere near a potential downtrend.
Remember, market corrections of 5-10 percent are fairly common, especially after the great run we’ve had in the market since November.  And the move in the bond market, with 10-year yields rising from 1 percent to 1.5 percent, actually marks one of the biggest bear markets in bonds ever, almost as bad at the “taper tantrum” in 2013.  And it’s a move that, even if it continues, likewise won’t move in a straight line.

Have you made any changes to your trading strategy in this market?

Hit reply and let us know how you’re handling the increased volatility.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

So Is There a Retirement Crisis or Not?  Surveys show many Americans feel unprepared for retirement.  Surging inflation, loose monetary policy and Social Security woes abound… So how concerned should you be, and if you foresee your own crisis, what should you do?

Heart and SoulGood Morning … If prospects want what we have to offer, what do we do to talk them out of it?

Prospects want our products, services & opportunity.  Who would not want a better life with more money?
So let’s solve this mystery.

1.  Prospects are pre-sold.

2.  We talk to prospects.

3.  Prospects say, “No.”

Now the problem is easy to see.  We talked to the prospects!

So what words do we say that turn prospects off, and activate their sales and skepticism alarms?  Do any of these opening phrases sound familiar?

“I just got involved with …”
“Would you be interested in …”
“I have a ground-floor opportunity …”
“Let me tell you about this breakthrough product …”

26-instant-amazoncoverOuch.  We are only a few words into our conversation, and we are already dead.  Yes, it is all over and we haven’t even reached the second sentence.

The solution?  Well, we could use better ice breakers, learn how to build better rapport, and talk directly to prospects’ color personalities.  But here is an interesting solution that does much more. It is called “soundbites.

4 Color Personality TypesThe Four Color Personalities and how they translate into my life.

Once I had an understanding of “the color personalities” my life made more sense.

A simple over-exaggeration of the personality types might be:

Yellows:  Ask them to help now.
Blues:  Ready for some action and fun?
Reds:  Give them a challenge.
Greens:  Stand back and let them digest information.

Each new skill we learn makes the other skills work better.  That is why most of the people at the top have higher skill levels.  I want to join this empowerment.

If you don’t know the color personalities, it is the first skill that you should learn since it gives them the confidence to talk to others.  Why?  Because they feel they know more about the ‘prospect’ and what drives people.

How are your color personality skills?  If you are like most of us, you didn’t learn these skills in school.  If you haven’t mastered the color personality skills yet, and the secret language that goes with the skill, here is a great, easy-to-learn solution.

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
