Where the masksThe Federal Reserve keeps cautioning investors about the economy and yet their balance sheet is shrinking right now.
Don’t let that fool you.  They stand at the ready to push inflation to 2% and beyond. Before those additional measures are likely to be implemented, it will likely take market weakness.  As a result, the market may be stuck to figure out whether economic “liftoff” is ready yet.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

BREAKING NEWS

The bottom line.  People don’t really care about your WHY – ONLY HOW WILL YOU HELP ME!

I am so stoked to bring you the highlights of my notes taken from Ray Higdon’s 30 minute call with Hank Norman.  The conversations was totally about what you portray when you talk with people … your social image … your social branding – what your audience really is looking for!

#1:  Biggest mistake people make on Facebook Live – People think they can talk-on forever – without following a plan.  They need to follow an agenda … because their audience deserve that.  Value your audiences’ time!

#2:  Biggest pet peeve is waiting for people “to come online” “for the room to fill”Start and end on-timePlease!

#3:  Leading with vulnerability is new.  Reality TV has changed how we now consume.  [We need to not worry about oversharing, or is this not right for my audience, offending someone with the truth, or with the harshness of reality, or being caught-up in getting people to like me! … or in putting that best-face-forward.]

You need to show people the human side of you!  Your vulnerabilities connect with you audience.  Business and personal are intertwined.  One cannot be separated from the other.  Not only is it okay to share this … IT has now become mandatory.

#4:  “I want to do this,” and “I want to be known for that!”  The media, your audience, people cannot relate or respond to seven different interests or seven different skills.  The media only responds to a very specific, singular idea.  Getting someone to pick … believe it or not … is the hardest thing!  People have so many interests, getting them to pick one!  …very, very difficult!

Unless you’re know for the thing you’re good at, or going to be good at… there is this fear!  “Now I will be held accountable for that one thing.”  We as humans like to keep in the back, a reserve, a knowing – that we are also good at this, or that we can also do that.

#5:  Another big pet peeve – sunglasses.  I want to look into your eyes.  Don’t speak into the lens of the camera.  Speak 1-on-1 with me!

Every individual is a sole consumer.  DO NOT address your audience as “Hey Everyone!”  That is just plain arrogant … It’s an insult to me!  Don’t do that … Please!

#6:  And finally, we like to shield our audience with the words, Some People!  Some people struggle with….  Stop it!  Become bolder in saying differently, “The reason you struggle with bad breath is because … blah blah blah!”  Again, define to whom you speak.

That was great.  My wish for you was that you got value from the post.  😉

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!

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
