Your OrderGood morning.
The stock market volatility in recent weeks has left the stock market still near all-time highs.  But with some large daily swings, and with tech stocks down much more on average, the sentiment is still somewhat bearish.
Overall, that points to a slowing of the longer-term market rally, not the end of it.  Some of the big speculation in tech in the first few weeks of the year has taken a pause.  That’s normal in a bull market.  As a result, investors and traders alike should look for short-term fears as a buying opportunity, particularly in fast-growing tech plays.

How have you shifted your trading strategy in today’s choppy markets?

Es' Birthday CardToday … It’s my 69th Birthday!  … Yes! … “Too late to die young.” 

As many well-wishers are texting messages, emailing, and speaking on the phone with me … I’d like to say a special thanks to Es who sent me this brother-in-law birthday card.

Dutch-Pancake-HouseWe did, have to unfortunately, postpone this years’ Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus get-together with friends and family due to the Coronavirus outbreak.  Everyone’s first priority is to keep healthy and safe!  Thanks everyone … we will get together soon!  XoXoXo

Our EXAMPLESHIP creates our legacy

Brian Carruthers wrote this article … and I couldn’t be more proud to share it with you and your family today!

I’m teaching Colton before he’s 2 about 10X Mindset.  This kid is OBSESSED so I doubt he’ll ever be average. #beobsessedorbeaverage #10x (Grant Cardone’s book The 10X Rule)

People question if I’m legit all the time.  They say “If you really made $20M+ then why are you still building and working??”

I tell them I’ve barely even started to scratch the surface of my potential.  And my mission is bigger than just me.  And I tell them that if I got lazy now and slowed down, I’d be teaching my little kids the wrong lessons of work ethicambition, and going for it in life.  I want them to find their passion and get attention on it.  Build their empires on it.  #buildinganempire

Money is only a part of the overall picture.  Net worth is just a measuring stick for how much value you’ve brought to the marketplace.  IMPACT IS EVERYTHING.  I want to make the world a better place.  I want to teach my kids to do the same.

Let’s all know and remember … our AMBITION sets the tone for those around us.  The greatest gift we can give our kids is not monetary inheritance.  It’s mindset  and attitude and ambition and work ethic.

If we are lazy, if we are not going for it with urgency each day CONSISTENTLY, not only do we not accomplish big goals and create big success for ourselves, but our playing small adversely affects everyone we care about.  Our EXAMPLESHIP creates our legacy … good or bad, big or small.  You can’t tell your kids they can accomplish anything they want in life while you’re playing small and not accomplishing much.  They will look at you as either a hypocrite or as someone just blowing hot air that they don’t even think you believe yourself.

Many parents think spending tons of time with their kids is most important.  I feel that a balance is crucial — your kids need to see you hustling and winning, and having SOME time when you can just chill with them.  But it is GOOD FOR THEM to miss you, and see that you are doing important things in life.  That teaches them ambition, purpose, and real life skills.  Yes, kids spell LOVE as T-I-M-E.   I totally agree.  They want you there a lot, but they NEED you to go be a winner example for them as well.  Again, it’s a balancing act.

So I choose the 10X mindset.  I am building empires with people, impacting lives all over the world, helping all those people become heroes and great examples for their kids.  My three boys will know their Dad as someone who had impact.  Yes, I made crazy amounts of money as well.  But it’s the impact they witnessed that will serve them well in their futures.

Go 10X your life.  Do it for you, do it for your family, do it to leave your mark.  😉

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday … Happy Birthday … Happy Birthday to me!

Yes, today is my birthday anniversary.  I have lots to be grateful for … the off work today is one of them.  Chilled out for the day!  Pre-paid for my flight from Halifax, NS to Saint John’s, NF later this September.

Also booked my accommodations for Saint John’s, hoping to see the “Jelly Bean Row” houses, the Cape Spear Lighthouse, and the place where Marconi sent the first wireless trans-atlantic communication, Signal Hill.  Plan to a lot of Geocaching in and around St. John’s. [I’m excited…]

“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
