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.

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
