Today is declaration day!
Not that I’m Catholic, or particularly religious…
I HATE MORNINGS.  (okay, I’ve said it!)
I am totally an evening person.
So, what is the first thing I do every morning to cheer me up?  I go learn something.¹
I enjoy learning, and within a few minutes, the start of my day is positive.
What I do next is share that new-found-learn with my friends and colleagues, like you!

“I Start, Grow, Systemize, And Then Delegate My Way To Success…”
(Say this 3 times today)

Massive mistake alert!  I probably “lost” a million or so dollars and years of work because of the mistake Jesse Eker points out/share in this video.  Looking back over the last 8-18 years, there have been some massive and very costly mistakes I wish I too could take back.

Richard Branson has been quoted to say, “Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”  I would like to add, “You can only be on one bus at a time; yes, you can use your ‘transfer’ to get on the next bus; but your money is spent and time is short…

Like a thief had siphoned gas from your tank…

    • You’ve been ROBBED of youthful energy…
    • DRAINED of your vitality and happiness…
    • And left dealing with CHRONIC pain and fatigue that makes it hard to just get through the day…

Struggle with the afternoon doldrums and needing a nap after lunch?
Reaching for another cup of joe to keep you buzzed and awake?
This helps me … and should help you too.  Good Morning, Sunshine Diffuser Blend¹

#1. Fill your diffuser with tap water up to the “fill line” or fill marker.
#2. Add the appropriate amounts of drops to the diffuser.

      • 3 drops orange essential oil
      • 1 drop ylang ylang essential oil
      • 1 drop bergamot essential oil

#3. Enjoy!

These are changing times; COVID-19 cannot be blamed completely for that.  It has however disrupted certain patterns: such as, our time to learn, grow and share…

Keith Kohl is a writer for Energy & Capital: A Practical Investment Newsletter which analyzes the New Energy Economy.  He recalls stepping off the plane in Calgary nearly a decade ago on his first junket to the Alberta oil sands.  My wife and I currently live in Calgary, and have also made the trek to the Fort McMurray Oil Sands, so were curious as-to-what brought him 2300 miles from Baltimore to travel an additional 500 more mile north.

You may recall that a decade ago, the U.S. was importing about 2.5 million barrels of oil from Canada every day.  The oil recovery process is a vast undertaking with trucks that are the size of small houses and a massive mining surface clearly visible from space.  Yes!  Very impressive.

What stood out most in our writer’s mind were the little placards situated next to every major object in the room and throughout the hotel itself.  One thing about them stood out like a sore thumb: all of the signs were written in Chinese; summing up the future of the oil sands perfectly.

China’s Secret Oil War

If nothing else, you have to credit China for always looking long term.  That’s precisely how they’re securing future oil supplies.  For years, China has been shoring up its energy security by pouring investments into foreign countries.  Unlike Venezuela’s oil industry, which has been incredibly unstable, Canada offers China something it’s been craving all along: energy security.

All we need now is a pipeline to the coast… [Cenovus Energy (NYSE: CVE) is the largest and one of the most efficient SAGD producers in Alberta right now and has rewarded shareholder with a 42% move since December ’18.]

That’s the first place I’d start.  😉

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

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
