                                                                                    Good morning.
Wow, that was amazing!I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.  We may need the rest and relaxation for what we’re about to experience this week.  While the market saw some serious volatility last week, the volatility markets didn’t reach levels that are typical for a market bottom.  In addition, the advance decline didn’t reach levels that are typical for a market bottom.  For the most part, the selling has been relatively balanced, it’s just the size of the movement that isn’t.  This stands in stark contrast to the selloff on June 11.

Here is the rest of the story:

How I came in last place.
If we wait for someone to come around and motivate us, what will happen if that person does not show up?  Are we going to stay unmotivated for the rest of our lives?  Certainly Not!

Are you feeling stuck and struggling to achieve success?
Here Rob shares what it really means to execute and bring success to you business.

Take Action and Execute Your Plans

If you are stuck in training mode, need help to stop, focus and just take action to sell your product or service, the bottom line is that you have to be asking human beings if they’re open to your product, service or opportunity first.  Before getting stuck in training mode.

“Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask.  Everything you want also wants you.
But you have to take action to get it.” —
Jack Canfield

Keyboard comes aliveIf you want to sit in the library and do a bunch of training, then go for it.  But not if you haven’t reached out to people first.

So how do you do that?  You manage your time.  And people who are stuck in training mode and not taking enough action are likely not lacking time, but are struggling to manage the time that they have.

For example, let’s say that you have two jobs, you’ve got 13 kids and you literally have 45 minutes a day to put towards your business.  And you want to change your world.  You wanting to change your life.  So if you have 45 minutes, and that’s it, spend at least 22½ minutes daily prospecting and reaching out to people.  That’s half of the time.

Meaning that it is so important to reach out first.  You can say something like, “Hey, you opened to my product.  You opened to my service.  You opened to my opportunity.”  So spend 22½ minutes daily reaching out to people every single day.

If you do that, you will build a business guaranteed.  🙂

It’s funny¹ how one word will spark ‘the memory’ to tell a story?  Squamish.  I’m taken back two months ago today, to Mike & Jasmine’s wedding, in British Columbia.

Squamish, B.C. — definitely want to revisit this place…

According to Native American folklore, long ago during the time when the salmon swam up the Cheakamus River to spawn, the people of the Squamish Nation would fish & store their catch for the coming winter.
One day, a man came to the river and cast his net into the water hoping to catch something for dinner.  Within minutes he had enough fish to feed his family through the following spring.  He packed his catch in cedar baskets and prepared to haul them away.

As he started to leave, he looked to the river and became unsatisfied with the abundance he already possessed.  He cast his net into the water once more and pulled out another bounty of salmon.  He emptied his net onto the shore and admired his second catch.  He now had enough fish to feed two more families until the spring.

Instead of leaving, the man wondered just how many fish the river would give to him.  He tossed his net into the water for a third time.  He pulled it back in and found that it was tangled and filled with sticks, river stones and muck.

He shrugged off this misfortune and turned away from the water.  When he looked toward the last catch of salmon he’d left on the shore, he saw only piles of rocks in its place.  When he checked his cedar baskets he found them filled with twigs & roots.

Then he noticed Wountie, the spirit protector of the river.  Wountie spoke to the man and told him that his greed had broken the ring of harmony with the river — and that Nature expressed her displeasure by withholding her gifts to him.  The man returned home with empty baskets, haunted by the consequences of his actions.  He would always remember that enough is more than plenty.  😉

Well today we wake in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

The sun is rising as we look east while sitting on the porch from our [McIntyres] cottage.  Except for our freshly brewed Tim Horton coffee, my wife and I are starving as we await our sister-cottage-travel-eases to join us.  [Normally we would have supplied our respective cottages with enough breakfast goodies — however, this was not the case.  Rounding up the troops — we’re off to Baddeck, NS for a “paid” breakfast.]

We are to meet with Joan and Dione at the base, our starting point today, of the Cabot Trail around 11:00 a.m.; giving use ample time to fuel the ourselves and the KIA.  [Worst breakfast I’ve ever eaten away from home, I’m sure.  Twenty-seven-dollars of pure crap…]  My own fault for not doing something about it then … than complaining about it now!  Oh well … we have about a 45-minute drive to our rendezvous.  Lots of room for Joan and Dione to switch to one vehicle, the Sedona.  Next stop, the Trail Gift Shop and time for me to go in search of a geo-cache or two.  [No such luck … non close bye anyway/anyhow … however … up yonder there might be something!]

At Tim Hortons yesterday, Kierra mentioned a hidden Gypsum Lake that was an old quarry at one time.  Anyone up for a hike?  Here’s Dione checking it out for us.  Joan and Olly opted to stay back with the KIA while the rest-of-us climbed up to the lake.  See why Kierra would share this secret with us … it was fab!  Yes we got our geocache!

Back down the path to rejoin Joan and Olly, we piled once again into the Sedona.  Only a short distance now along the Cabot Trail to The Doryman Pub & Grill, Cheticamp, NS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good fun!  Good food!  Good beer!  Good talk!  Good day!  Still more to see!  Off we go once again, but first a short pee-pee break!  We will be going further east to Pleasant Bay, NS before stopping.  From this point we’ll be coming back down, returning Joan and Dione to their vehicle.  It has been absolutely fabulous.  [I know we have just eaten, but we have a long drive ahead of us today and tomorrow, as we’ll be leaving Cape Breton and our “cottages” to travel via ferry to P.E.I.]

Oh, I almost forgot to tell-you-all … When we got back to Baddeck, we went out for dinner at the Baddeck Lobster Supper, where Alan and I shared a lobster, Caryl and Olly shared a steak, and we all tried a bucket of mussels together.  Esme had her own lobster to eat, but Alan was not sure with a whole lobster, so agreed to split mine.  The meal was a lot of fun as we tried new taste sensations together!

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

Good morning. The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow. One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets. We’re still a
