Want LeadershipGood morning.
Conventional wisdom is to buy the dip in the markets.  Conventional wisdom can sometimes be wrong, but in the case of the stock market, is usually right.  Those who bought stocks last year after the market dropped 10 percent might have had to sit tight for a few months, but have been richly rewarded a year down the line.  Those who waited for a 20 or 30 percent drop did even better, but such big drops in the market occur typically about once a decade on average.
Enter Cathie Wood of Ark Investments.  The tech investor spent last week’s more modest 7 percent drop in tech stocks as an excuse to buy some more shares.  Her rationale?  All stocks need a periodic “reality check” and investors who take advantage of short-term drops can be set up for long-term success.

How much does the market have to drop before you start adding to your positions?

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

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Health PlanGood morning.
It was on this day in 1938 that oil was first discovered in Saudi Arabia.  That was 82 years ago and look where the Middle East is today in terms of wealth and OPEC production cuts.
Well, at least oil saw a little resurgence on Monday on the news.  I guess we can all celebrate this event by filling our tanks.  This one’s for you Saudi Arabia!

My logo designing didn’t go as well as I had hoped yesterday!  With the use of different video idea and graphic design software… thing were much better.  The video below is quite long but proved invaluable…

Getting late in the evening… so I will resume tomorrow, hoping to wrap my logo design up!  😉

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
