I hope you had a great weekend. It’s great to see people out and about, masked or not.
I happen to live where things are opening up more quickly, and I have to tell you, it’s a relief.
The only problem is that what is true for one, is not true for the whole. The fallacy of composition across states is leading to a lot of uncertainty. That uncertainty is what’s holding the bulls at bay. There needs to be another bullish catalyst or the bears will want to come out of quarantine as well.
Will the most popular job in 29 states disappear?
Yes, it is having a shocking impact on our economy — it’s a true pandemic causing massive suffering.
But what most people don’t realize is that this virus has also accelerated an even bigger long-term trend that’s going to have a massive impact on you and your money over the next few years.
In short: A terrifying (for some) and new disruptive force is creating thousands of new millionaires (Barron’s estimates 20,000 to 200,000 so far) while at the same time destroying the financial future for many others.
The good news is, no one in America can do a better job of outlining what is happening — and more importantly, what you can do about it — than the founder of our research firm, Porter Stansberry.
No one believed Porter years ago when he said the world’s largest mortgage bankers (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) would soon go bankrupt.
And no one believed him when he said GM would fall apart… or that the same would happen to General Growth Properties (America’s biggest mall owner)… or that oil would fall from over $100 per barrel to less than $40 a barrel.
But in each case, that’s exactly what happened.

Suffer from lack of confidence?
An easy shortcut to fix our lack of self-confidence is to be an expert. Expert? Well, to at least know more than our audience.
If we are afraid of public speaking, give a speech to the 6-year-old first-graders at the local school. We won’t be nervous. We know more than they do.
In network marketing, we can increase our confidence by simply learning more. That is why we read books, attend Saturday morning trainings, and hang around the leaders. Every new piece of knowledge will give us more confidence to talk to other people.
“I don’t know how to start when talking to people.”
Here is a solution. Start with the first sentence.
It is impossible to start with a second sentence, so our first sentence has to be good.
Unfortunately, our prospects judge us quickly. That is why our first sentences must be good.
Here is an entire book of great first sentences we can choose from to kickstart our business.
A book to “Quickly Get Prospects on Your Side.”
I’m pleased to call Tom “Big Al” Schreiter a friend and mentor.
