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.

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
