Delemma_2Good morning.
Despite the noise of the past few weeks, investors seem to be fine with the idea that today’s high inflation rates will end up being a blip on the radar.  The biggest sign?  Big tech stocks are starting to lead the market higher again.
Microsoft (MSFT) hit a new record high as it announced its first new version of Windows in over 7 years.  And chip companies are working overtime to resolve supply chains, which has been pushing the Nasdaq higher.  When big tech companies lead the market, stocks tend to have their strongest moves higher.  The past few months, which has seen other sectors such as energy rally, have been marked by a more sideways feel to stocks.  So keep an eye on big tech moving higher.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Bull-or-just-BullishGood morning.
You would have thought a recession would have been the catalyst for Facebook and other social media companies to start the selling party, but it was advertiser’s virtue signaling to their consumers.
Regardless of whether you agree or not with these companies taking these actions, the spending for many is through the election and the rest of 2020.  This could take a bite out of profitability even before recessionary forces do.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

This is America’s New War (Not Coronavirus) —Heed Porter warns.
It’s still in its infancy, most people don’t yet really recognize what’s happening in America right now.
“In short: a new war is erupting.”
But it’s not a war between countries and big armies… or between states and the federal government.  And it’s not necessarily a political war either, although both parties will soon be involved.
Instead, it’s a war between people who understand a life-changing new trend … and everyone else.  And it won’t be the middle class that gets left behind.  All across America, millions of lives will be destroyed by changes only a handful of Americans fully grasp right now.  Even wealthy people will be shocked at how quickly their money and savings can disappear.  The coronavirus has only accelerated this process.

Today’s Life Lesson: Do Your Best

“There are some extremely successful people out there that have started with less than you.  They had less money than you, less time than you, less education, less freedom and some of them were even uglier than you yet they still became successful.” – Kenny Santos

Key Purpose – Create Customers

Many people think that the purpose of a business is to earn a profit, but they are wrong.  The true purpose of a business is to create and keep a customer.  And 50% of your time, effort, and expenses should be focused on creating and keeping customers in some way.

Key Measure – Customer Satisfaction

Your ability to satisfy your customers to such a degree that they buy from you rather than from someone else; buy from you again and again; and bring their friends to buy, are the key factors of growth and profitability.

Key Requirement – Adding Value

All wealth comes from adding value.  All business growth and profitability comes from adding value.  Every day, you must be looking for ways to add more value to the customer experience.

Growth is not an accident; so you must plan and map out your growth plan if you want your business to see a bright future.

I’ll leave you with this great quote from Tony Robbins…

“It’s not the lack of resources, it’s your lack of resourcefulness that stops you.”

To your business success,

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
