Your CEO does not watch the news.

Your CEO does not watch the news. Ask ’em. They keep up on the news, but they don’t watch it. For example, in my last email alone I shared more information on the “employment situation” then could be gathered from over 40 hours of watching the old-fashioned news.

They read this email. They subscribe to podcasts. They read books. They watch. They talk to each other.

But they don’t sit and watch the news every single day. They don’t have time and they need to stay focused on more positive things to continue to inspire you and cast a great vision for your company.

Let’s face it if they watch the news every day it’s tough to be excited about life much less fire-up the troops.

The great Zig Ziglar had one goal every morning, to find once piece of amazing and useful information that could help humanity and share it with the world. Watching the news is not an efficient way to gather that info. and stay positive and they need to be positive to vision cast.

They are seeking great ideas to share with you and the company not passively allowing the information coming at them to shape them but more actively seeking out the news they need.

“There’s always good news if you’re looking for it.”

Speaking of the news have you noticed that every single news outlet is working overtime to convince you we are in a recession or about to begin one? Now, not saying that we are not, and I am concerned about inflation, but I have some good news to share with you that you may or may not have seen.

According to WSJ Dollar Index, which measures the dollar against a basket of 16 currencies, increased 8.7% in the first half of the year. This is a wonderful time for an international vacation.

The unemployment rate is 3.6%. An Economist once told me the unemployment rate is the 800LB Gorilla of the economy. If that’s good, we should be good. That’s the most important economic indicator, unemployment.

U.S. economy added 372,000 new nonfarm jobs in June far more than the 250,000 expected.

Help Wanted OnLine (HWOL) Index increased in May and now stands at 178.6 (July 2018=100), up from 173.1 in April. The 3.2% increase between April and May follows a 3.8% decrease between March and April. Overall, the Index is up 22.1% from a year ago. New numbers out soon and I will share them in the next email.

Yes, interest rates are up 3%, but the stock market is down 15% YTD already. No one wants to be the last one out of the market and perhaps the 3% interest hikes are already priced into the market.

I think inflation has peaked. Look at energy that’s the last indicator. It’s not over but I think its peaked and that’s a good thing.

So, for these reasons and others, we may have a recession but not a horrific one. We’ve been through so many of them before, and we’ll get through this one.
