Graduation_04Good morning.
Lumber prices are now down more than 40 percent from their peak a few weeks back.  Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are down 30 percent or more over the past few months.  Even gold prices have started to drop as well.
Is this a sign of a bigger crash in store?  After last week’s rough trading for the stock market, it’s a possibility.  But it’s always a possibility that stocks drop 5-10 percent without any real news or large macroeconomic event behind them.
Given the rally in a few tech names last week, such as Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Nvidia (NVDA), it’s more likely that inflationary-type trades have simply lost their momentum, and that new market leaders, possibly tech, are emerging.  This rotation also means more volatility, but more opportunities.

Gold … $1,766.09 (-6.0%)
Silver … $25.90 (-7.6%)
Platinum … $1,047.59 (-9.5%)
Palladium … $2,502.67 (-11.0%)

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Inflation may Be Transitory, But Its Damage is Permanent
Recently, inflation is running much hotter than the Fed’s 2% target.  That’s bad enough, even in the context of 25 years of inflation.  Today, we explain how all inflation reduces the buying power of every one of your dollars, permanently… [Read Here]

What is the most important and most missed step in overcoming objections?

Since our profession is sales related … (give me one profession that isn’t) … you’ll need to learn how to overcome objections.  There are dozens of object-ions that a prospect may give you when you are trying to sell them your opportunity, product or service and I was taught that if I learned how to overcome all the different objections then I would inevitably get the sale.  This isn’t true.  Sometimes your prospect simply doesn’t want to join and no matter what you do or say, they still won’t buy or join.  I would waste so much time with the wrong prospects thinking that if I could overcome all of their objections with logic, then my time would be well spent and would end in a sale.  I was often disappointed.

I have since learned and I now overcome objections with a lot more efficiency and effectiveness.  When a prospect presents me with an objection, there is an important first step that I take and it has resulted in more sales and sign ups.

Should I Even Bother?

Before l consider overcoming an objection.  I ask myself.

“Is this an objection that I even WANT to overcome?”

There are some objections that tell you that your prospect isn’t someone that you want on your team.  Save yourself some time, pick your battles and resist the urge to overcome every objection.

Arguing Vs Overcoming

When you are trying to overcome an objection, it might sometimes feel like an argument.  You are telling the prospect why they should join and your prospect is telling you why they shouldn’t.

Wouldn’t you want to work with someone that is excited to build a business’?

“If you have to convince them to join, you will have to convince them to work.”

Overcoming an objection shouldn’t feel like an argument.  It isn’t you vs the prospect.

When you take a quick moment and consider whether or not you even want to overcome a particular objection, you spend less time with the wrong people and more time looking for the right ones.

Pretty cool eh? … Did This Help You’?

Create A Great Day!

It’s NOT A JOB

Now if you’re comparing “what we do” to a job, then you’re doing your-self a disservice.

Network marketing isn’t to be compared with “a job” because you don’t own a job.   Actively “playing” the stock-market to pay monthly expenses is not a job.  It’s what I do!  So what constitutes a job?

If you’re comparing “a job” to where you show up, punch a clock, where you don’t have an investment of money, but an investment of time, that might be a job.  If: You can never be free.  You have to show up.  [I think we’re getting closer to what the reality of a job is.]

I never had “a job” that I stopped showing up at … that continued to pay me.  They figured out that discrepancy rather quickly, sometimes too quickly.  You got to look at the difference there.

I do many things to earn money.  I have a part-time job with benefits. One of the benefits is our group dental plan.  Another is “accumulated paid sick-time” and paid vacation time.  I suppose, getting extra pay for working on statutory holidays is a benefit … as well as … my employer matches my private pension monthly contribution.  There is a long-term disability insurance plan that covers me while I’m employed. Peace of mind … I’ll have to thank ’em when I leave!

I guess my beginning this post was to point out that everything I do is part of my “work package.”  The Network Marketing part is my passion; my VectoVest Day Trading is my love; and  “the punching the clock part” is my security … it keeps my wife happy.

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
