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… 😉

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
