Dog GoneGood morning.
In every endeavor of life, there’s always someone who’s a self-proclaimed expert… but who tends to get it completely wrong.
By finding those individuals and then taking the opposite approach lies the path to riches.
Call them anti-experts, call them contrarian indicators, call them desperate celebrities, it’s all a rose by any other name that can be used to find profitable ideas.  Without naming names, such people can be found all across the investment spectrum.
One reason for a bounce higher in Bitcoin prices on Friday appears to be a warning from one of these anti-experts, who made the case for the cryptocurrency to now drop to $10,000.  It just goes to show, if you know who to listen to (and who to take the opposite approach of), you can get an idea for where certain assets are heading.

Gold: The Best Hedge in All Economic Climates
Gold is known as a safe haven and inflation hedge.  It’s equally effective today, amidst negative real interest rates and a plunge in the dollar’s buying power.  Adrian Day tells us why gold is still the best hedge… [Read Here]

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]

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
