Affordable HousingGood morning.
The President of El Salvador, which has a GDP of $27 billion, intends to introduce legislation to make Bitcoin a form of legal tender in the country.  If approved, there could be global ramifications.
Currently, regulators remain mixed as to whether Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) are a form of property, a commodity, or a security.  By adopting a legal tender standard in one country, other countries would likely have to start treating Bitcoin as any other currency.  Improving the legal status of cryptocurrency could make it easier for international institutions to own.
No doubt other small countries will want to see the impact (if any) the announcement has on trade, tourism, and monetary policy.  Time will tell just how historic this development is.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Former Obama Adviser Larry Summers Warns Joe Biden: Inflation the ‘Primary Risk’ to U.S. Economy –Charlie Spierling,Breitbart
“Already, consumer prices have risen almost as much as the Fed predicted for the whole year,” Summers wrote.  He offers one suggestion for President Biden to implement… [Read Here]

6 months laterGood morning.
I hope you had a great weekend and had a chance to digest what just happened on Thursday and Friday last week.  It was truly remarkable.  Early in the market’s recovery, it was solid names and companies that were poised to gain from the pandemic.
That has transitioned to companies that may have been under-valued but good companies.  Now, it’s about squeezing the shorts on incremental optimism that has yet to find a strong foundation.  Have we finally wrung out all the new buying interest, or is the market poised to hit new all-time highs?  That would be unfathomable.

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

Here’s a great message/lesson from Harvey Mackay.

Enhance Your Life During Tough Times…
For so many of us working from home during our stay-at-home restrictions, the days seem to take on an eerie similarity regardless of how much we actually accomplish.  I can barely remember the last time I put on a suit and tie!
On my reading pile was an article on easy ways to enhance your day.  It got me thinking about simple ways to improve my own life and outlook.  Clearly, these times are not business as usual, but we need to stay sharp so that when we do start returning to our routines, we are ready to roll.  I’ve picked out a few items that intrigued me especially.
You don’t have to make drastic changes to improve your days and life.  Take it one step at a time.
The list starts by advising people to re-evaluate their sleeping habits.  Get to bed early and wake up early to get the day started.  I find that most days I don’t need to set an alarm because my body wakes me up naturally.  I used to worry that I would miss something if I slept more than a few hours.  Now that I know better, I don’t feel guilty about getting more rest.  Enhance Your Life During Tough TimesPace yourself.  There will always be busy times that you can’t avoid, but when possible, keep them to a minimum, so you can stay level-headed with less stress.  Learn to say no without feeling guilty.  I love when people are willing to take on extra tasks when necessary.  However, I do not love when their work is substandard or their usual responsibilities suffer because they are buried and on overload.  Know when to say no.
When things do get hectic, find a quiet place you can go to think and get the maximum amount of work done.  Smartphones and social media can overwhelm us to distraction.  To be more productive you need to put limits on all these interruptions.  I have a window of time every afternoon when I ask people to call me back.  Time management is crucial.
Organize your life, which means cleaning up your office and home workspace.  If you are working from home, you likely have less space to spread out.  An orderly space saves time and frustration.
I try to do two things every day that I need to do but have been dreading.  Get them out of the way in the morning so I can face the rest of the day fresh.  We all procrastinate on items we would rather not deal with, but the longer we put them off, the more difficult they become.
Make a prioritized list.  I live and die by my lists!  Plan what you want/need to achieve for the day and concentrate on completing that list.  Allow some time for last-minute emergencies.  Before the day is out, plan your next day.
Keep track of your goals.  Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day.  Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.  Achieving goals produces significant accomplishments.
Limit the time you spend with negative people or those who drag you down.  I surround myself with positive people that encourage me and lift me up, and for whom I can do the same.
Look for the good in other people.  One of my all-time favorite aphorisms is:  “A pat on the back accomplishes more than a slap in the face.”  Right now, especially, whatever we can do to lift each other up will elevate us all.  Sometimes a little encouragement is all it takes to keep another person going.
Read more, whether it be the newspaper, a website or a good book.  What an opportunity to tackle that stack of books you’ve been meaning to enjoy!  If you have children at home, and have become a “substitute teacher,” model great habits by reading with them or to them.
Now that we’ve all binge-watched old episodes of TV shows into oblivion, check out the fascinating courses and podcasts that will broaden your horizons.  Take advantage of the empty hours when you would have been at a movie, sporting event or traveling and use that time to learn something new.
Finally, don’t expect others to make your life better.  These challenging times will pass, and we’ll be playing catch-up for a while.  Make the best of these days to prepare for the best tomorrows.

Coke™ said they “NAILED IT.”

“Big Al” nailed it too.

Tom “Big Al” Schreiter and “I” Robert Walker have a confession to make: We are both “Network Marketing Professionals.”¹

That is extremely easy to confess when you are 100% in understanding of what it truly means … a big part of it is a “DSA code of ethics.”²

That “DSA code” is not the purpose of this BLOG Post!

The purpose of this BLOG Post is EXPOSE Why do people say “no” to us?

Most people want what we have to offer.  It is better than what they currently have in their lives.  We offer better health, better skin, better value in travel, part-time incomes, a chance for full-time incomes, and more.  Of course, almost everyone would want these.

However, many people say “no” to our offers.  Why?

Because our offers come bundled with our agenda.  Prospects think we have an agenda to make money off of them, to make them do something they don’t want, and to change them against their will.

So we don’t need better offers.  What we need to do is remove our agenda, or the appearance of an agenda.  Sales presentations scare prospects.   A more natural conversation is the better path.

Removing scary objections from prospect.

Prospects want a career in network marketing with all of its benefits.  What scares them and keeps them away?

It isn’t the chance of failing.  They can quietly live with a few failures in their lives.

Here is what is really scary.  It is failing and having their friends and relatives know about it, and then hearing, “See?  I told you so.”

If we are smart, we will handle this objection early in our presentation, and remove the #1 reason that people do not join.

Remember, we could be one person away from changing our lives forever.

Have a great weekend!

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
