Super Saturday Special!

What are our prospects thinking?

  1.  I only care about me.
  2.  I only care about my problems.
  3.  I don’t care about you.
  4.  I care even less about what you want to show me

Our human nature has a dominant program called, “Survival.”  Our brain’s first priority is to keep us alive.  We want to look for resources.  We want to solve our problems.

Does that mean people are selfish?  Sure.

To be interesting, we should talk about our prospect and our prospect’s problem.  If we do that, we will always have an audience.

When should we talk about what we want to offer?  Later.  First, let’s focus on our prospect and our prospect’s problem.  This makes it easy for both of us.

Are you struggling with finding the time to do it all?

I just listened to a fabulous FB interview with “A Busy Mom of 7” while she shared her tips for managing to juggle home life and building a thriving business!

If you are a mom and you’re struggling with business…

Or you’re struggling with, “What should I be doing this next year, 2019 through 2020?”

This is a great place to be … Jessica Higdon interviews Rosa Parma.

Rose is a super busy mom of 7 who is currently building a successful business.

They talk about the main areas that women (especially moms) really struggle with and how to overcome them.

Here are some highlights of the call:

  • Read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. [personal development]
  • Meal planning can save you and your family a whole-bunch of time & money. [redirect the energy]
  • Recognize that what you put into anything, [i.e.: bizz] you get returned doubled. [i.e.: resources]
  • My team was not duplicating until I made it easy for them. [simplify the system]
  • Success came into focus when I saw success around me! [forest thru the trees]
  • My positivity is contagious vs: ‘Oh Woah Is Me!’ [magnetic attraction]
  • Thankfulness and Gratitude fills me up and keeps filling ‘My Cup’. [so much to be grateful for]
  • Cannot separate Product & Business & People … just fits well … not forced. [reduces ‘mom’ guilt]
  • Money making activities ‘time blocked’ into my day! [customer/team appreciation & give-a-ways]
  • Don’t mess with mom’s coffee. [start my day and end my day with it]
  • I’m my own ‘best’ competition. [learned awhile back to not compare or blame others]
  • My kids are NOT my excuse … I keep promises w/ family. [respect ‘mommy at work’ now time!]
  • Never stop moving forward … growing vs: dying.  [find your opportunities]
  • I’m a night person, others are not.  I get a lot done in the evenings. [what are your power-hours?]
  • Before getting out-of-the-car after dropping the kids off at school … I make my calls and/or listen to my messages.
  • …cause I know once I get into the house … there are dishes!! laundry!!  snacks!!  vacuuming.
  • We sit down as a family and DREAM REALLY BIG!  [kids are part of the why]

Enjoy that interview … me too!  😉

Vehicle Advertising

Using your street smarts will put you on the road to success.  Here are just two quick examples from Harvey Mackay.

Paint your wagon.  Did you ever notice how many people happen to work in office buildings more than one-story in height?  And how many of these same people look out the window off and on during the day?  Why not paint your company name and logo on the top of your delivery vehicles or trucks?  It’s the easiest, least expensive and most neglected form of advertising.

Call on people on their birthdays.  I always make it a point to visit my customers on their birthdays.  If you can’t get to them personally, call or email them.  Send them a humorous, but tasteful birthday card.  Stress this tip with your salesforce.

This such a BIGGY of Harv’s…  You won’t believe how much business we write up on our customers‘ birthdays.  They are in a good mood.  Bring them a creative gift.  You are not buying their business, you are building a relationship.

I once figured out that I make approximately 300 phone calls a year to my customers and friends on their birthdays.  I always try to put a smile on their face by singing Happy Birthday in a humorous voice.

My reminder is, “To always be thinking … to always be taking action … to always be street smart.”

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
