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.

Good 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 …”
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.”

The 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.
