Craig Ballantyne is a mentor of mine!  He shared five success principles in his last newsletter: that completely changed the game for Jack.  I want to share the third one now.

The 5 little-known “Keys to Unstoppable Success”
3. You Gotta Set Your Ego Aside
If you avoid having outside eyes on your business and your daily activities…
…you will slip into ineffective patterns that can destroy your profits.
You must adopt the mindset of “Kaizen”, by which you are constantly seeking improvement.
Continue to search for better, faster, easier, more profitable ways of doing things…
Ways to improve your product or service… ways to improve yourself.
Only then will you start doing more of what works and less of what doesn’t.
You must be willing to destroy your beliefs… to cut ties with your rituals and routines … whenever something better and more effective can replace them.
Here are some questions for you to apply to your business:
  • What’s working?
  • What’s not working?
  • How can you improve what is working?
  • How can you eliminate what’s not?
  • Why are you currently getting the results you’re getting?

Answering these questions is key to continuous growth.

Don’t skip your homework.

(next week we’ll provide the fourth “Key to Unstoppable Success”)

Better Than Duct TapeGood morning.
Uranium fever is back in the markets.  Periodically, the commodity used for nuclear power comes into the public’s mind.  While the commodity isn’t directly traded like oil or copper, its price is determined by contracts between power companies and uranium miners.  That makes the market somewhat inefficient, and easy to see when the market is tight.
Now is one such time, and interest in uranium trading is growing on a number of platforms dominated by meme traders.  On a supply and demand basis, they’re right, as we’ve already seen in recent months with unusual options activity in a number of uranium producers.  But with meme investors piling into the trade, it may be prudent to take some short-term profits here.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Entire College EducationGood morning.
A recent study showed that 39 states don’t have the money they need to pay their bills.  With the economy still working to reopen fully, chances are tax revenues will lag for years.
That could add a twist to the recovery, as changes in how states attempt to collect taxes may end up leading to migration… and may prevent assets like stocks and the housing market from appreciating further from here.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Not Enough Silver on Earth to Meet the Coming Demands
“I’m thinking triple-digit silver.  I was always thinking in the low end of that triple digit.  But now, I’m thinking it’s possible to get into the higher end of that range. ” –Keith Neumeyer

Which ice breaker formula do you like?

Ice breaker?  This is a phrase or sentence that introduces our business into a social conversation, in a socially-acceptable way.  We don’t want to look like jerks.  We don’t want to be the person that tries to force a discussion about business during someone’s wedding.

IceBreakersOur ice breaker should not be about us, but about our prospects.  That means we must focus on the benefit they will receive, or the problem we can solve for them.  Here is an example of a benefit template.

  • “I show people how to get an extra paycheck every month.”
  • “I show people how to be their own boss and work from their homes.”
  • “I show people how to lose weight by changing what they eat for breakfast.”
  • “I show families how to take their children to Disney World, instead of only showing them pictures of Disney World.”
  • “I show families how to finance private education for the children.
  • “I show people how to work out of their homes instead of commuting to work.”

If you like formulas and templates to make your business easy, you will enjoy this book.

Available in audio, ebook, and paperback.

Also available in Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

One good ice breaker might attract the person who will change your life.  😉
