Vodka ... Canada

Good morning.
The Nasdaq added to its prior weekly gains on Thursday.  The tech-heavy index has now recovered about half of its recent decline.  The move comes as Washington approved a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan, and as 10-year bond rates came down slightly from their recent spike higher.
Market drops aren’t unusual, and neither is a recovery.  The question is where stocks will go from here.  If history is any guide, this recent sell off will simply look like one of the market’s more random fluctuations, although prices may bounce around until the market finds a reason to definitively move higher.

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.” –Steve Jobs

Are tech stocks heading back up? About to drop again?  Or are they now in a sideways trend?

Now here’s the rest of the news:

What if...001Good morning.
I was perusing Facebook Last night and came across an ad for up to $30 off a one-day ticket to Universal Studios Hollywood.
Makes you wonder if they’re trying to draw in locals, but the reality of theme parks offering discounts certainly makes you think.  Could Disneyland start discounting, heaven forbid that should happen.  With more an more people holding up in their bunkers, it makes me want to have my mouse ears at the ready for a discount.

Tomorrow I begin my second 14-Day-Challenge.  I’ll share this letter written by Julia Gentry which explains my why better than anyone else could…

Why Do We Need Entrepreneurs?

We are living in a world with 1.5 million people without jobs… why?  Because we are lacking the education, the training, and the mojo to get out there and actually create jobs instead of demand-ing them.  We are taught to go to school, get a degree, and then someone, somewhere will take care of you by providing you a job, with insurance, and health benefiits.  We live in a world of entitlement.  We think that because we have gone to school, headed off to college, received multiple degrees, graduating at the top of our class that it should then grant us the reward of employment.  I hate to break it to you but that is not always the case.  Take a look around.  Things are changing.

Am I frowning upon the educational system?  No, absolutely not.  What I am frowning upon is the sense of entitlement that we have developed.  I think it is drowning the human spirit.  I think it is keeping us from uncovering what we are really capable of and I think it is stifling the extraordinary things that are possible if we would only step out and make something happen.

Entrepreneurialism makes something happen.  It takes nothing and turns it into something.  It takes what used to work and makes it work again by being innovative and creative.  Entrepreneurialism is something big.  It is not a selfish thing, such as our world’s common sense of entitlement.  It is solving a problem bigger then one’s self.

Example, if an entrepreneur creates a business that is successful, it will not only satisfy the needs of the consumers who will continue to buy, but it will also add more and more jobs, creating a demand for employees.  With greater demand for goods and services, the greater the demand for employees.  Google was just two employees about 15 years ago, now it is many thousands of employees in a new industry that did not exist 15 years ago.  It was created by entrepreneurs.

We cannot get out of this debacle that we are in as an economy by doing what we have always done.  We have got to change things up a bit and we have got to put a new way of living into action.  Our world needs leadership.  It needs innovation, creativity, commitment, and longevity.  Our world needs to be lead by a group of people that understand how to take themselves from the inside out and the outside in, to establish themselves as “power houses” that are going to rebuild our communities, our nation, and our world one person at a time simply by knowing how to leverage their abilities.

This is seen in the lives of entrepreneurs.

And our world needs more entrepreneurs.  Our future depends upon it.  😉

If you fight for your excuses … I will let you keep them!

Why?

Because an unstoppable vision will motivate me to produce, and help those who choose similar aspirations to fulfill needs that are sadly not being addressed; I will never settle for less that possible, nor encourages others to see-the-glass-half-full.  As the glass takes on more liquid … the glass containing this liquid also enlarges!  To have more does not requires others to accept less.  No!

Gathering the ingredients to make more pies, or otherwise, build additional value, is not winner-take-all.  For one to benefit does not diminish or devalue the merits of another.  The net sum therefore is forever bountiful and bright.

There will be no dangling of the meager carrot, producing false hope and expectation, only to lessen the end result and weaken the body, the mind, and for the ‘ever global’ family beyond our fingertips; the very bases and spirits of the world truly at the door.   In offering my leadership, [not wishing to dictate … push … or even pull] – I understand there is a time for listening … here too, decisions once made … must be followed by action … and that action will lead to additional experiences, further wisdom, a success.

I’m reminded consistently, of learning moments and success.  The only failure is in the next breath we take, or heart beat, not being there!!!

Life is, and in itself, a miracle — not to be take for granted, but in gratitude, used daily … not stored away for safekeeping — to be taken out-for-show once or twice a year for special “best china” occasions.

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
