Emerald Bay Connection


Good Morning,

DID YOU KNOW ? Household wealth in the U.S. continues to surge. China has replaced Japan in 2nd place. Aggregate global wealth rose by $14 trillion to $317 trillion in the 12 months prior to mid-year 2018, a 4.6% growth rate. Rising wealth was largely due to increases in non-financial assets owned by the middle-class. Total wealth and wealth per adult in the U.S. have grown every year since 2008, even when total global wealth suffered a reversal in 2014 and 2015. The U.S. has accounted for 40% of all increments to world wealth since 2008, and 58% of the rise since 2013. (Global Wealth Report 2018)

DID YOU KNOW? 5% of the entire US population is housed in just three cities: New York, Los Angeles and Chicago

The key to reaching high levels of performance and productivity is to develop the lifelong habit of tackling your major task first thing each morning.

– Mark Cuban
