If Hillary Won. This Wouldn’t Have Happened.

Twelve random thoughts that might test your beliefs and give you pause.

Investors are handicapped in thinking in words and not pictures.

The more people make, the more they have to understand everything else that makes up their finances that isn’t income.


You don’t own the stock you purchased. You own the process that had you buy that stock.


This doesn’t make sense? If it doesn’t make sense then the market is telling you that your frame of the world is off. Because you have a dozen logical reasons why XYZ should go higher. But it’s not. You see, the world always makes sense. You just don’t see it yet.


The older you get, years become seasons, then months. This is why, “the market always comes back…” doesn’t matter that much after the age of 60. And is why people with Big-Box Advisors are so worried about the next recession.


All retail will not die from Amazon. Here’s a great PowerPoint deck on why Costco is winning in an Amazon world. By the way, I love Costco. Why? (1) I’m always surprised what they have and look forward to being surprised. (2) I can return anything with ease. (3) Going to Costco with my two kids is always fun.


Samantha Bee, a late night comic, did a great piece on the messed-up-ness of Brexit. I loved it. A Brief History of Brexit for Americans. How easily people are fooled.


Ronald Reagan’s last speech as president. The 80’s is what set the United States up for the 1990’s and 2000’s… Just saying, Elon Musk wasn’t born in Cleveland.

This would never have happened if Hillary won. Could what is happening today be accelerating faster because she lost?  


This would never have happened if Trump lost. There is a movement that has been set in motion because Trump won.

People are starting to notice Your Age + Your Risk Tolerance + Ignoring The Market(s) = angst, stress and a lower portfolio.

And one more…

Psychologists asked participants in a study to write a few sentences each week. One group was asked to write down things they were grateful for. And one group wrote about things that irritated them.

The study found after 10 weeks the group who expressed gratitude on a regular basis were more optimistic and felt better about themselves. The people who focused on negativity exercised less and were more prone to doctors visits.

With the glut of information these days you don’t have to look very hard to find something that can make you angry, displeased, inadequate, or outraged.

So if you are in an abusive relationship with a “pick of the month newsletter” service that drops cortisol bombs on your brain. Perhaps it’s time to change who you’re hanging out with.

There’s a better way. A way where recessions don’t have to devastate your future and collapse your choices.

PS – Whenever you’re ready, there’s three things I can help you with…

1. I can show you how to avoid losing half your money [again] in the upcoming recession.

Whether that recession happens in late 2019 or 2020. A recession is coming and stock markets have a history of falling 40% to 60%. But your account doesn’t have to.  We can help you make sure your money is on the right side of the market. Click here.

2. I can show you how to position yourself with GOLD…

I just posted two very in depth gold videos in the members area. I look deep into gold’s price and price history and show exact points where you’ll want to possibly think about “backing up the truck.” And where we are today. And what signal to watch for specifically. I even include a couple individual stocks for people that find the need to own stuff like that. Just log into the site and go to the Portfolio page, its below the Model Portfolio.

3. Seriously… why haven’t you gotten a second opinion?

When was the last time you had a third-party person look over your portfolio and clearly point out to you where all the leaks are? You might be surprised how many there are. And no, I’m not talking about the obvious fees.
