What can you do when you’re stuck at home?… The home biz is booming…  A time to invest in ‘hard assets‘… Homebuying is on the rise… Mortgage rates are near all-time lows…  inside Lowe's

When you’re mostly stuck at home with nothing else to do…

Why not finally tackle that home-improvement project that you’ve put off for days, months, or even years?

Sure, honey, I’ll get right on fixing that broken light…

Yup, let’s just redo the basement floor; too…

Of course, I can paint that entire room by myself…

As we’ve written over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has widely exposed the existing problems and issues of many industries — as well as those of our government…
And a global economic shutdown also accelerated virus-proof, recession-proof persistent trends that were already in place, too — like online ordering and cloud-based software companies that don’t totally rely on the “physical” world or “old economy” to do business.
For instance doesn’t e-commerce giant Amazon (AMZN) feel basically like a utility?  And at the same time, it’s one of the few big companies hiring hourly workers to keep up with demand.  {No résumé required for $15 per hour.}
Fellow tech giants Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOGL) have finally unveiled their COVID-19 tracking technology.  Call it “contact tracing” in the cloud.  But things are still happening in the “real world,” too.  On the ground, oil demand is picking back up.  In the air, folks are starting to buy airline tickets again.  And in our homes, all along the way, a lot of people are looking around their own properties and saying, “Let’s do that.”
Based on the latest earnings reports this week from the two leading home-improvement retailers in the U.S. — Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) — business is booming…

My most surprising lesson in business AND Network Marketing?

Was when I found out about the four colour personalities.  I didn’t know.  I thought all personalities thought similarly… but they don’t.

This explained a lot of my initial frustration with prospects.  We don’t know that 3 out of 4 prospects think and make decisions differently than we do!

And it goes further

Knowing which colour personality our prospects are is very important, as well as how they see us.  We may think we are a certain colour personality but prospects could see us differently.

Want a quick 5-question test that shows how prospects see us?  It only takes one minute.  Here is the link:                                                     https://bigalbooks.com/color-quiz

Just remember this: “Whoever has the best story … wins!”
