ActuallyThe market sees volatility come back with a 2.5% drop in the S&P 500.  While that’s not exactly a world-beater, it is an indication that the accumulation of negative data may be starting to weigh on the Bulls.  While bulls can be strong, there’s only so much weight they can carry before the bears can take them down.

<—————– 6 ft ——————>

Please practice physical distancing.

Stay <———— 6 ft ————> apart.

Six feet can seem like a lot.

Or six feet can seem soooo close.

In football, it’s 2 yards from the <———— 6 ft ————> goal line.

In hockey, the opening of the net is <———— 6 ft ————> wide.

How satisfying does it feel to punch through those final 2 yards for the touchdown?

How exciting is it to slap a puck at 90 mph and see it fly straight past the goalie to score?

Sometimes, that <———— 6 ft ————> can be a metaphor.

You might be <———— 6 ft ————> from completely reinventing your business.

Maybe you’re just <———— 6 ft ————> away from your next $250,000 client.

Perhaps you’re <———— 6 ft ————> from a dramatically different pricing model.

Or you could be <———— 6 ft ————> from leaving that old impostor syndrome behind.

Maybe you’re <———- 6 ft ———-> away from total clarity of who you serve & what problems you solve.

Or <———— 6 ft ————> close to knowing exactly where to find great prospects and clients.

How close are you?

Is Work-Life Balance a Myth?

…Disorganized?  Burnt out?  Behind?  Rushed?

Lookin’ for work life balance tips¹ … It’s safe to say that you love your BUSINESS and your FAMILY.

If you often wrestle with the concept of “work-life balance,” then allow us the opportunity to burst the bubble: It’s a cultural myth.  It’s overrated.  It’s a fundamentally flawed, unachievable concept.  The notion of work-life balance suggests that we should have this perfect balance between our personal and professional responsibilities at any given time.

This couldn’t be further from the truth for the over-whelming majority of folks, and here’s the even more critical part: Life is seasonal.  In other words, there may be seasons when the scales tip in favor of our professional responsibilities and aspirations, and there may be seasons when our personal lives take priority.

It’s not all or nothing; it’s just not necessarily 50-50.  And what works for one person, may not work for you.  And what works for you today, may not work for you down the road.  And the seasons of life can also extend to your spirituality, relationships, health, fitness and other aspects of life.

Now, that’s not to say that you should ever neglect these key areas.  After all, it’s not about how much time.  It’s about being intentional with your time.  As Hillary DePiano said, “We all get the same 365 days.  The only difference is what we do with them.”

And we all get the same 24 hours.  Are you living intentionally with yours?  Are you present when you’re with your family?  Are you zeroed in on the opportunity at hand?  Or, are you distracted by everything else you could be doing?

As Paul wrote in the book of Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.”  Said differently, wherever you are, be there.  Or, as Mark Batterson put it in his book Play the Man, “Do it like your life depends on it.”  Whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or relationally, leave it all on the court.

Intentional living, according to John Maxwell, is key to “choosing a life that matters,” and like many of you have experienced, fatherhood refines, humbles, and promotes growth — for everyone.  Quit aiming for someone else’s idea of balance, and focus your target on living intentionally.

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” – Maya Angelou

To your balance,

Secrets Of Inner Power

Before you close this post and go on with your day or night… there’s something I’d like you to take a moment to think about.

Success is like an iceberg.

Most of us only see the 10% that’s visible above the surface: the nice house, the expensive clothes, the fancy car.

But most of us never see the 90% that’s under the surface.  All the hard work, good fortune, and mindset that go into keeping that success afloat.

So we focus on trying to achieve the part we can see.  And we wonder why we never quite manage to create the life that we want.

Can you relate?

This training is designed to help you understand what’s going on under the surface.

It’s going to help you discover the root cause that determines whether you struggle in life… or you succeed. 

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why you haven’t got the results you have always hoped for… then T. Harv Eker International has the home-study course for you… entitled, Secrets Of Inner Power.

This is my P.S. reminder to review Harv’s previous material before committing to anything further!

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

Good morning. The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow. One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets. We’re still a
