The S&P 500 was down over 2% last week. The question is, is this the start of something bigger or is the market going to follow the pattern it has for the past several months? A small correction like we just experienced, and then a push higher? Generally around quarter end markets perform well. So I would not read much into the strength that may come today thru Wednesday. There is a lot of news coming later this week that could move the markets.

Health Expectations

"What are your goals, hopes and expectations for me as your chiropractor?"

This is a question I always ask to determine exactly how a new practice member wants to be cared for. This is where I get to just sit and listen to how a person is made up.
  • What drives him or her?
  • How much they want to be active in the health partnership?
  • Do they want a quick patch job?
  • How important their body is to them.
I even get to hear about what they believe their potential for life is.
It is a pretty cool time to put aside my paradigm for health and hear what someone else’s is.

Make no bones about it though, regardless of what the answer is, my job is to find out what has caused the lose the health and how to help get it back completely. At the very minimum my job is to Inform him or her exactly how to get it back and let he or she decide.

If your doctor asked you this question, what would you say?

Your Health Mentor,

College Football Today: This Weeks Picks

Here is College Football picks for the week.  Most teams are entering conference play and there are no huge games that should tip the polls in any major way; however there should be some pretty entertaining games such as Notre Dame vs. Purdue, Colorado State vs. BYU, Arizona vs. Oregon State, Michigan State vs. Wisconsin, Clemson vs. TCU, and California vs. Oregon.  Happy Valley is a rocking place so Penn State vs. Iowa should be a good game for the visual effect if nothing else.

Market in a Minute, September 21, 2009

Presented by Alan Favre, CFP
Authored by Partick Adams, CFA

Our position on the market is, sentiment is very much tilted to too many bulls, valuation is not excessive but is full, the market is overbought, and GDP growth will slow after the 3rd quarter. We could avoid a correction but the odds are against it.

Have You Seen the New E-Cigarette?

A new "healthier" electronic cigarette looks like a cigarette, feels like a cigarette, taste like a cigarette, provides the apparent satisfaction of a cigarette but there's something very different about it! Find out what it is besides the fact it costs $150.00. I wonder if it is dangerous in the rain? :o)

Book Review: The Success Principles by Jack Canfield

The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be may be familiar to some of you as it has been out awhile, but if not and your looking for a good self-development tool I highly recommend this one. Although it is rather lengthy, it is a very practical and straight forward book that walks you through his process step by step. The book on tape is very good also to reinforce the message.  So why is this book unique?
