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

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.

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
