Look around, have you noticed that lately we've had one batch of bad news after another? First it was talk of World War 3 with missiles being fired at American troops then the Coronavirus and now the stock market. I agree we've been riding high for a long time to the point where people are calling Trump the stock market President and yes the bears have been screaming for a correction but it seems like things went sideways on us quickly. The stock market is one thing but the overall mood of the country has plummeted which is why I want to share something positive today.
