No Perfect Words
How do you apologize for 400 years of oppression?

No Perfect WordsThere are no perfect words to describe the situation in a way that encompasses the depth and tragedy of it all.
Thank you to the protestors for making change.  And to the activists for bringing voice to this brutality.  To the thousands of people that are walking down ‘my street‘.  In front of my shops & grocery store.  Whose chants I hear each night… on the news.  To those that are creating videos and live streams.  To those who are lobbying politicians.
As I read the stories of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor (and countless others), I realized I didn’t know the full details of their truth.  The horrible truth of the brutality that exists out there.  Of fear.  Of being killed by the very people whose job it is to protect us.  Of there being little to no punishment for the perpetrators.  And it made me sad and angry — but most importantly it made me more aware.

And for that I am grateful.

I don’t speak for everyone, but I know my clients and I have been speaking about its effects.  It’s causing us to wake up.  To think differently.  To be different.  Though I wish that this change didn’t come at the expense of lives being lost.
And to my black friends who are already painfully aware — my heart goes out to you, for the tragedies and the slowness of the changes that need to be made.

To people of every color —
Thank you for speaking out.
Thank you for protesting.

It takes courage to be visible.
It takes bravery to speak out.
It takes hard work to wake people up and make real change.

As a tribe of small business owners we can start contributing to that change by supporting black owned businesses and raising our awareness about the experience of black small business owners.

Yes!  I live in Canada.  Yes, I may be considered privileged; AND NOW gratefully … I’m much more prepared to listen, and now hear, and even understand ‘your pain, your history, and your struggles’ … for that … there are … NO PERFECT WORDS!

Being positive attracts more positive

Once you get some momentum you need to keep it going by focusing on how great it is that you had a win or that something is going well.  There is great value in realizing that there is no reason to drive backwards toward something that you don’t want.  It’s time for most of us to rip out the rearview mirror and only look through thru the windshield and look forward at what we want – at what feels good!

Fine Canadian Gold CoinA note on gold

Some fans of gold like the metal on the grounds that the government can’t manipulate its value as it can a fiat currency like the dollar or Euro.  Yet the largest holders of the metal are central banks, from the Federal Reserve to the ECB and even non-governmental institutions like the International Monetary Fund.

Any thoughts on the subject?  😉

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
