Work From Home2Good morning.
Most investments these days are made with passive investments, such as the millions of Americans who contribute to a 401k plan.  These plans invest in funds. In turn, those funds must periodically rebalance their holdings.
Notably, the Russell index has now done its quarterly rebalancing. A number of poor performing stocks have been booted from the index, while a number of companies that have performed well enough have gained inclusion in the index.  The most notable inclusion?  GameStop (GME), which will move from the Russell 2000 to the Russell 1000, where more passive investors will take a stake (whether they want to or not).  Meme stocks have come to the average 401k plan, and the trend is likely to continue.

Transitory Inflation Takes Hold of the Economy – How Long Will It Last?
High inflation, 2.5x the Fed’s target, is here, right now.  We’re told not to get too concerned over it. “Merely transitory,” the Fed tells us.  Today we ask, how long is transitory?  There’s no easy answer… [Read Here]

“The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary.” –Ashleigh Brilliant

My passion is helping people discover, develop and fulfill their dreams.  In the process, I fulfill my own.

I take great joy in supporting people and organization to consistently create excellence.  By living our dreams, we give birth to things that never would have been, but more importantly, we become more of who we are in the process.

Why is it that we live in the most prosperous time in human history, yet people struggle more than ever to earn the income they want without sacrificing their souls … or even worse … their lives?

This isn’t about starting another side hustle or putting in more time!

Deep down, you know that you’re only a few feet from striking gold.

But no matter how many times you swing the pick-axe, you can’t seem to strike it rich.

Yesterday’s message was clear … the answer is actually pretty simple … You must remember:

What got you HERE won’t get you THERE.

Read that again.

What got you here (to this plateau), won’t get you there (to the mountain top).  Breathe.¹

Thankfulness and Gratitude are also a very big part of THIS…

And as always, stop for a coffee along the way!  😉

Thanks for stopping bye,

¹What does breathe mean? Breathe (pronounced breeth) is a verb and to breathe is the action of inhaling and exhaling air using the lungs. If you replace this dirty air filter, you will be able to breathe better.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
