Animal_1Good morning.
The first half of the year saw endless stories about the impact of rising lumber prices.  From adding thousands to the cost of a new home, as well as showcasing supply chain issues in the timber industry, prices have heavily pulled back from their peak but are well above their levels a year ago.
Well, there’s a new commodity making big moves higher: Coffee.  A combination of robust demand, and the potential supply shock from frost in Brazil have caused coffee prices to jump over 30 percent in the past two months.  While this will moderate in time, at least paying an extra quarter for a cup o’ joe isn’t going to significantly add to housing costs.  But it shows the trading opportunities in the commodity space, which often looks a lot like a game of musical chairs, with one name dominating while another quietly sets up to be the next leader.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

What Do You SeeGood morning.
The Federal Reserve appears prepared to keep its promise of promoting higher stock prices at any cost.  Sure, the near-term benefits are positive for investors, but the promise to do anything and everything to achieve that goal appears to be departing from the “virtuous” circle of liquidity that the Fed has traditionally engaged in.  We’re in uncharted territory with only Japan in our view ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Something is ‘rotten’ in the United States… you probably feel it in one way or another … We do, too.
The major U.S. stock indexes continue to climb from March’s bottom, while unemployment remains at record levels…
The politicians in Washington are getting ready to leave for “recess,” and apparently can’t even agree on how to spend another round of “free money” from the Federal Reserve before they do…
And today, second-quarter gross domestic product (“GDP”) in the U.S. — the traditional measure of economic growth — was announced…  It showed a decline of roughly 33% annualized, a record drop that actually beat analyst expectations by a few percentage points.

Oh joy.

Meanwhile, I (Corey McLaughlin) can’t fathom how we’re five months into the COVID-19 pandemic and my sick, confined mother-in-law still has to wait a week to get a test result… while the professional football players and staff a few miles away can take a test and get their results back every single day as part of the (antitrust-exempted) NFL’s $75 million testing plan.
In other words, the disconnect between Main Street and Wall Street may never have been wider than it is right now.

Attraction marketing is a broad subject and there are many ways that you can implement it into your business.  Here are the four ways I use attraction marketing to bring me 2-5 new teammates a week.  I’m pretty sure you’ve heard all the buzz around attraction marketing right?  Then the review will be all the more beneficial.

#1: Treat your business like a million dollar business

How you treat your business dictates how it’s going to pay you.

Multi Million Dollar HomesYou can’t put in 2 hours of work a week & expect to get paid the big bucks.

I see so many network marketers treating their business like its a hobby they can pick up whenever they’re in the mood for it.

This is a huge mistake.

The low cost of entry for starting a network marketing business is a positive and a negative at the same time.

What I mean by this is that because it costs so little to get started in Network Marketing… it’s also easy for people is treat it with no value whatsoever.

S0 instead… re-evaluate what you’re putting into it versus what you’re wanting to get out 0f it.

Treat it like it’s a million-dollar business and you’ll attract more people to you that will want to know more about your products, service or business.

#2: Think in benefits

The first thing to understand when applying attraction marketing in your business is… you gotta think in benefits.

Product Life CyclesBenefits are what your products and service does, not what it is.

But how exactly do you think in benefits?

Think of the products or services you promote…

What does it do for people?

Don’t include the science, ingredients or awards… cause you knew what?

No one cares about that.

People only care about what your products or services can do for them.

So sit down and write down at least 5 ways that your products or services benefit people.

And then when you post on social media or do your Facebook lives you can use that list to speak in benefits.

This is what’s going to attract people t0 you and have them want to know more about your products, service or business.

#3: Pick your platform

Most people think they have to be on every platform out there.

We got…

Social Media SitesTwitter

✅ Facebook

✅ Instagram

✅ Snapchat

✅ Pinterest

✅ Youtube

and more…

But you don’t need to be everywhere because as I always say… where you out your focus is where you’ll get your results.

So here’s the thing… pick 1 platform and show up consistently and FOCUS all your energy there until you get results.

If you’re not too sure what platform you should be focusing on then you’ll want to check out Episode 134 that’s all about The Best Social Media Platform To Prospect, Recruit and Build Your Business. (here’s the link)

#4: Pick your schedule and be consistent

So now that you know WHERE you’re showing up… you getta figure out WHEN you’re showing up.

Create a schedule and stick to it.

This way it conditions your audience to know when you’ll be showing up and they’ll be expecting you.

Where You Put Your Focus Is Where You’ll Get Your Results

Now go kick some butt… 😉

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
