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.

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.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
