Recently the Stock Market moves down are fast and deep. This shows a way to make money from falling stock prices, and the process of identifying stock market dogs to protect yourself from a rising market  - Ed.

I get a lot of questions about short selling, probably because most investors have never done it.

Short selling is the sale of a stock that is not owned by the seller in anticipation that the stock’s price will decline, enabling it to be bought back at a lower price to make a profit. If you can identify stocks before they fall, you can make a bundle of money via short selling.

To help you understand the mechanics and opportunity of short selling, I want to walk you through my most recent successful short sale to help you decide if short selling is right for you.

"Competition is on for discretionary dollars, as growth of real after-tax income of middle class Canadian families has stalled"

Mobile internet, combined with cloud technology, has enabled US mobile e-commerce (m-commerce) revenue to grow from $13.6B in 2011 to $155B in 2015, and is on track to grow at an annual rate of 28%.  Amazon and Walmart now both offer free shipping and same day delivery in some cities.  For businesses, Amazon Supply is quietly targeting the fragmented trillion-dollar US commercial and industrial B2B wholesale and distribution market.

How to Grow a Loyal Workforce as You Grow Your Business

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 10.11.26 AMDuring a phase of rapid growth, don’t focus on keeping a tightly knit workforce, rather focus on keeping a tightly knit mission to dominate the sector, and then align the workforce to that mission. 

To achieve this, do the following three things:

1/ Focus on a core competency

The mission to dominate a sector will ensure the company stays focused on market needs, pushing it to innovate new offers, develop new business models, and clearly define the core competency necessary to deliver ongoing value.  A tightly knit workforce can then be built and focused upon this core competency (e.g. technology, design functions, engineering expertise). 

2/ Make change the new normal

High growth companies are in a state of constant change.  This state needs to be defined and communicated by the business leader as normal, healthy, and lower risk than the status quo.  All sacred cows should be offered up for slaughter as necessary, so the cultural expectation becomes the willingness to change internally in order to dominate the space externally.

10 Easy Steps To More Cash Flow

Posted by Eamonn Percy - The Percy Group

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 7.12.39 AMStep 1. Know your numbers - The best business leaders are able to describe their business, market and future plans, numerically. Exceptional growth comes from the precise understanding of all aspects of your business, including key metrics (e.g. sales funnel health, CAGR, and gross margins) and the status of current resources such as cash. I am not suggesting you lack emotion or passion, but rather complement it with objectivity. 

Step 2. Embrace low-cash, growth strategies - Often a company in growth mode will get a rude awakening when the sales plan actually succeeds, only to discover cash consumption, for working capital, can vastly outstrip cash generation. One of the better problems to have, but don’t let it become fatal. Build low cash growth strategies upfront such as: non-core outsourcing, well negotiated deal terms, low cost technology platforms, and scalable, multi-channel business models 

Step 3. Maintain control of your financial systems at all times - Build strong and robust financial systems lead by competent and trusted financial managers. Never, ever lose control of your financial systems. When in growth mode review your financial statements frequently (monthly) and cash position weekly. Audit your systems regularly and keep a constant lookout for incompetence, deception, and fraud. Leave nothing to chance here.

    Trader Training - How to Overcome Trading Emotion
    I think that many traders have a hard time believing that they can make money by buying a stock and waiting. Most of us are not taught to make our money work for us but instead that we must work for our money. Go to a job, put in the time and you get a pay check. Work hard, your pay checks will grow. But the thought that you can make money by putting your feet up is a difficult thing for most to grasp.
