WOW!Good morning.
Over 30 percent of all money created in the United States occurred in 2020.  That massive jump in the money supply, dubbed M1, leads several to expect inflation.  It’s why assets like gold and Bitcoin performed well in 2020.  But the flip side is that economic shutdowns led to less spending, missed rent payments, and other spending.  That creates deflationary pressures.  Anyone living in New York or San Francisco can point to dropping home values as the population heads for less dense living in the suburbs — or other states.
The biggest trend of 2021 may be the push and pull between inflation and deflation.  Of course, given how long an economic recovery can take, that trend may not be fully apparent until 2022 — and 2021 may surprise investors with how boring it was after 2020’s excitement.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Here we are, the final day of 2019, the end of a decade, and a brand new 365 days.
Are you, as Darren Hardy announces, getting ready to: “Get Ready to Kick Butt”

Before my wife and I head-out-of-town to celebrate with friends, we’ve got a 2nd message from Darren that is just too important to miss.  It’s entitled: “How to Make Change Possible”

New Years Eve 2020Around the table … from left to right … Chris, myself, Bill, and my wife Caryl, would ALL like to wish you, a happy, and very successful 2020!

The Procrastination Cure – total life changer for me!

How you do anything is how you do every-thing.  And everything starts with you.  If you are stressed, overwhelmed, have mental clutter, and are missing structure in your days, then your business, personal life, and health are going to suffer.  I know the feeling.  Earlier this year I was so over-worked, overwhelmed and stressed that I started having anxiety attacks.  One day it got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack.  I had to do something about it…

Over the next 6 months I started creating a better structure to my days and got more disciplined in my sleep patterns, workflow, and health.  I must thank my family, my wife Caryl, and especially my good friend Bill Jones.  But, it was not until mentor and author, Jeffery Combs sent me a book entitled “The Procrastination Cure 7 Steps to Stop Putting Life Off,” that things really improved.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking to build better habits and better structure in your days so that you can get more done with-out feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

The very best to you and your family in 2019 and beyond!

P.S.: Get the book!  [I’ll leave you with a quick review of the book put together by Patrick Brigger which I found for you on YouTube!]

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
