Good morning.
Good morning. Even with the recent selloff, the stock market is near all-time highs. So, too, is the housing market. On Tuesday, home sale data indicated the highest levels of sales since 2006. A big bump occurred in homes with a price of over $1 million. That trend in home sales shows the dichotomy in the economy right now. The high unemployment has largely been driven by low-wage workers whose businesses were shut down. Higher wage workers faced no shutdown, and, if anything benefitted by working from home and reduced spending out. It’s not quite in bubble territory yet, but home sales may cool off as relocation trends slow, giving stocks the upper hand once again.

Want to see an example of adding a few emotional words to help with an objection?

Objection: “I don’t think I should start now.  Things are not looking good at my job.  I need to conserve my cash.”

Us: “I would be scared too.  You have all your eggs in one basket.  And your job and boss control the basket.  That is a horrible feeling.  You don’t look like the sort of person that likes taking big risks.  Let’s start a second income now, so if your job goes away, you won’t lose 100% of your income.”

Coffee Dreams Dashed

Facts, PowerPoint slides, presentations, videos, brochures, and information put our prospects’ minds into analytical mode.  Deadly.

We want to avoid analytical mode at all costs.  In this mode, there is a long and usually endless dialogue that never comes to a conclusion.  This will delay the decision and we will hear:

“I need to think it over.”

 

I would not need to think this over!

Obviously I love, [understatement] my coffee.  A ‘specialty’ coffee on average costs around $5 … A few mochachinos a week could really add up.  Imagine if the sign above appeared in your favorite coffee shop?  It didn’t … but just imagine!  ;-(
