The Top 10 Best Songs About Money & Business

Song Update: I had to swoop in and make a swap today. I decided that Dolly’s 9 to 5 didn’t really motivate me like I wanted this list to. That said, time for Dolly to bounce and time for Rick Ross to roll in.

I promise this is not going to be a trend, but I’m adding another list.

Once again, this is mostly for my own motivational purposes, but if you like it, great, if not, keep it to yourself.

Therein lies that problem that I have with those lists; movies like Tommy Boy are comedies and not sales movies. Yes, we can all probably take a sales lesson or two about persistence and about what not to do in a sales meeting, but I was looking for drama, I want scenes that are patterned on sales events that I can relate with. So, I decided to take the step the just do it myself. If you don’t like the list, you can comment, but keep in mind, the list is not for you…….. Continue reading The Best Sales Movies of all Time

Predicting the Markets by Identifying Logitudinal and Gravitational Patterns of Mood?

Today while sitting and pondering my odd mood, I noticed an interesting coincidence in the marketplace. I felt really unmotivated to make any market decision that even hinted at being risky and the market seemed to follow. I know this is my super-nerdom coming out, but my thoughts spun into an idea; Are there documented “global” mood shifts? If so, could I predict market movement by them?

The topic of this post was born 3 days ago after I began rebuilding this site. After months and months of neglect, I decided that it was time to bring this site live again for nothing more than an outlet. In trying to do so, I accidentally dumped my database backup and lost the few posts that I had. That said, I decided to go to the one place I knew nothing ever posted could run from, the “wayback machine”. Continue reading Reflections
