It’d mid September and summer is in the rear-view mirror. School is back in, and Harvest is in full swing. September 2021 unfortunately has a couple added features – a resurgence of COVID and a federal election.
If there has ever been a time that we all just need a break from media stories and comments from politicians, right now may be the time. It is hard to recall a time where the news is so personal, so divisive and so alienating. Over the course of the past few years, social media has done little to reinforce a social connection in our lives but has found ways to drive wedges and provide a platform to drive us apart rather than together.
One of the things that I love about my chosen profession is that I get to share a connection with clients. I get the opportunity to share precious time and to be welcomed into not only your financial lives, but your real lives – your goals, concerns, and fears. As the months wear on and we are continually forced to meet via electronic communication, or through masks when face to face, the sense of comfort, security and connection is harder to maintain.
I have been trying to stay connected to you through these email updates, and I hope you find them helpful. But please know I miss chatting over coffee, but am only a call away.
