    The difference between strategic procurement and value procurement, and what organizations need to drive their progress along that maturity curve.
    How procurement can learn to thrive and build influence in an environment of greater uncertainty.
    The importance of bolstering procurement’s capabilities in the areas of finance, behavioral studies, and understanding the local implications of global trade.

    Silver, gold and other stores of value in these times of extreme uncertainty

    in Prepping

    You may have noticed the stock market's off to a rough start in early 2016, and cheap oil's not delivered the positive economic boost many so-called experts predicted it would. 


    Dry bulk shipping, the kind of shipping that moves masses of raw materials by sea from sourcing to manufacturers is also now reported to be "in a state of collapse." It's a dour data point suggesting manufacturers don't share the rosy economic optimism publicly expressed by politicians and media. 


    We had some good response when a recent program drifted into a discussion of silver and gold not long ago. This Friday, we'll asssess the topic again, along with some other potential stores of value in times of uncertainty.


    No, we're not saying 2016 is the year things finally fall apart. 


    But Don and Doug do see a continuing decline that has reached the point where every day that's perceived to be one of normalcy is one that perhaps does so on borrowed time.


    To ignore the danger signs at this juncture seems nothing short of foolish. 


    Agree or disagree, feel free to join our discussion at noon on Friday, january 22nd. 


     


    Please note, Don and Doug do not dispense investment advice, but would like to share our non-professional opinions to encourage your deeper exploration of some of our areas of discussion.

    Selling Value

    in Business

    Denise Griffitts Interviews Don Hutson: The Global Expert on Sales & Negotiations.


    At age 17 a young Don Hutson helped his dad selling houses in a brand new subdivision outside of Memphis, Tennessee.  Don had a problem.  As a skinny teenager, he needed to wear a suit, to appear older and more professional.  He thought adding a hat to the look would do the trick.  And so launched a legendary sales career for Don Hutson.  It was in that year he and his dad sold 76 houses, and the rest is history.


    Although his plan was to succeed his mother and father to get his degree at their alma mater, fate had a different plan, and that twist of fate was the key to Don Hutson’s incredible journey.  He worked his way through the University of Memphis, graduating with a degree in Sales, the only one in America at that time.


    Don went on to become the #1 salesperson in a national training organization. He established his own training firm and was soon in demand as a professional speaker.


    Don has been recognized with many honors, most recently the National Speakers Association’s “Master of Influence” Award.  He shares this recognition with leaders that include Ken Blanchard, Jack Kemp, Zig Ziglar and Norman Vincent Peale.  Don is the author of 14 books, including his latest, Selling Value: Key Principle of Value-Based Selling, and his two Wall Street Journal and New York Times best sellers, The One Minute Entrepreneur: the Secret to Creating and Sustaining a Successful Business and the One Minute Negotiator: Simple Steps to Reach Better Agreements.

    Your Value Doesn’t Decrease By Someone’s Inability To See Your Worth

    in Religion

    What if your strengths are NO VALUE TO ME?


    PEOPLE WHO SPEND THEIR LIVES TRYING TO PROVE THEMSELVES DON'T KNOW!
     


    If I would put all my energy in trying to make something work, trying to help someone heal, but would abandon my own needs or truth in the process, because the desire to recognize or honor my own worth was not as strong as it was for me to show you yours.


    THAT WAS ME!

    IT'S TIME TO KNOW YOUR WORTH!
