Mother's Day_9Good morning.
Last week saw the IPO of DoorDash and Airbnb, massive companies with multi-billion-dollar valuations finally reaching past angel investors and venture capitalists to hit the brokerage accounts of main street traders.  The level of IPO activity in 2020 has now surpassed the last peak, set in 1999.
Should traders be worried?  We remember what happened in 2000.  But maybe not.  This year, the bear market came first, after all. While the steepest bear market in history roared in March, it also proved to be short-lived. While history doesn’t repeat itself, it does rhyme.  And that makes for a great market for traders to make money on both sides of a trade.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Bloomberg Intelligence: Gold to $2,100 in 2021 “Without Much Risk”

Gossiping has become a primary form of communication.  We use gossip to feel close to one another and to feel better about ourselves.

But just because it’s normal doesn’t make it right.  Gossip is poison.  For those who are the target, gossip can be very painful and humiliating, and it can have a long-term detrimental impact on self-confidence and self-esteem.  To that end, it can contribute to depression, anxiety, eating disorders and even suicidal thoughts and tendencies.  Gossip can negatively impact a person’s performance at school or work, and it can negatively impact relationships, leaving one feeling ostracized and alone.  Gossip can damage reputations and character.

Ruiz says, “Gossip is black magic at its very worst because it is pure poison.  At first, it may be difficult to avoid gossip entirely but eventually, you will see how breaking the agreement to gossip will transform your life.”

Book Cover - The Four AgreementsWhile it can be difficult to break the habit of gossiping, awareness is key.  It starts with noticing how many group interactions deal with gossip.  Noticing which friends and groups spend more time gossiping.  Paying attention to when and where you partake in gossip.  Notice how it makes you feel when you gossip about yourself or others.

When you find yourself gossiping, stop, apologize and explain to your friends that you’re trying to break the bad habit.  Bring up a different subject — move the conversation to a positive direction.  Make others aware by telling them that the conversation is centered on gossip and you don’t want to be a part of it.  Avoid habitual gossipers.  Remove yourself from the situation.  To Awareness … 😉
