Friday’s quote is from Andrew Carnegie:

“As I grow older, I pay less attention to what people say.  I just watch what they do.

Check out these three great prospecting questions.

    1. “Do you think a part-time job would be better for you than a part-time business?”  (Most prospects will immediately attach themselves to wanting a part-time business.  Hey, working a part-time job until age 67 doesn’t sound like much fun.)
    2. “Starting our own business would cost a lot of money and it’s pretty risky, isn’t it?”  (Most pros-pects will agree and say that is why they haven’t tried a business.  Now they are open-minded toward a business that doesn’t require a lot of money and is not risky.)
    3. “Would a $500-a-month raise make a big difference?”  (Gee, that’s $6,000 a year, which would pay for a nice vacation, a better car, an occasional weekend getaway, or the minimum payment on the credit card.  This question is rejection-free.  Even if our prospect says “No,” that might mean our prospect is looking for even more money.  And we know our prospect can’t get this kind of raise from his or her boss.)

Using better words can literally create new prospects on-demand.

Enjoy your day!  😉

Just by Cranbrook (BC)

Second FULL-DAY-AWAY.  The Province of BC is having a tuff-go with all the forest fires!  Many people’s summer-homes and cottages are without protection from Mother Nature.  [I learned when we got back to Calgary, that my auto-mechanic “loss everything.”  He and his family were able to flee the flames only days before “their dreams were ex-tinguished.”  Because of that very threat of forest fires; only 1 access road in or out, and no town or fire-brigade nearby — their $150K retire-ment hide-away disappeared.]

There’s no trace of smoke in the air, around Kimberly today.  We took a short 30-minute drive to the south-east.  Most of the fires are burning MUCH further north … about 700 – 1,000 kilometers.  We actually have had a bit of rain throughout the day!  (Much around us is surprisingly green.)

We are on our way to Fort Steele, (BC).  Great historic site with many, many fun attractions.  “All Aboard!” [more to come]

Good morning. Retail sales came in with a blowout number, sending stocks to all-time highs and reversing a pre-market drop.  The reason is thanks to the last round of stimulus payments.  While earlier rounds made their way into the stock market, Bitcoin, or paying down a credit card, it’s clear from the retail numbers that many are spending. Governments and central banks are also likely noticing the impact as well.  If inflation numbers don’t materially rise and stay higher, the lesson may be learned that money can be created seemingly infinitely, as long as it’s designed to be spent.  Like

Good morning. Typically, April 15th is the day taxes from the prior year are due. 2021, like 2020, has seen a delay in payment.  Add in extensions, and you can float your payment to Uncle Sam for a year well into the autumn of the next. Tax talk hasn’t been too big in the past year.  For those on the upward part of the K-shaped recovery, it’s been withheld from their jobs as it’s been made.  For those on the lower end, there’s been less made to tax, or even the lower tax rates on unemployment benefits.  At some point,

Good morning. Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history. With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares

Good morning. The stock market is forward-looking.  And it’s been looking forward to this earnings season.  It’s a chance for companies to report solid numbers for the first quarter of 2021.  Earnings are expected to not only be good compared to the 4th quarter, but will also provide a strong view relative to the first quarter of 2020, when stocks had to first start pricing in the pandemic. But the real question is, what happens after earnings?  With some solid numbers likely, and with many companies still avoiding any future guidance, the next few weeks may lead to a big

Good morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics was down early on Friday, as traders looked to see the latest inflation numbers.  With a consumer price index level up 1.0 percent month over month, or twice what was expected, inflation numbers are certainly looking up. Over time, high inflation makes it difficult for companies to provide accurate estimates of costs.  Projects are delayed, and the economy and the stock market contract.  While some of that fear has been bubbling up, for the time being, a quarter or two of extra inflation may not cause a big market selloff.  Traders can potentially

“If you want your business to thrive, you must fall in love with sales and marketing.” –Marie Forleo Here’s to a better YOU … and now … Today’s DarrenDaily Recap Sunday.  A collection of the weeks videos from Darren Hardy.  Enjoy! Naturally beautiful: Lots of things to do in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Lots of local shops to visit and people to meet!

As we get better in businesses,

How to set boundaries … and say NO You know, when we were younger, we were wisely taught by our parents, teachers, and law enforcement officials to say NO.  Somewhere along the lines, however, we lost our way.  We started feeling bad about saying no, and we began saying yes…to everything.  The result?  We stretch ourselves thin by taking on anything and everything that comes our way – often reluctantly, begrudgingly, and resentfully.  This happens in our personal and professional lives, and it not only creates overwhelming (yet unnecessary) stress, it also puts tremendous strain on our relationships. In our
