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…

Home Depot and Lowe’s each posted quarterly numbers that indicate strong demand for their services…

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!”

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
