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.

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. 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
