The weather is hot, but it still doesn’t feel quite like summer. In this commentary, we are going to look at what’s been missing from the season.

Commentary May 11, 2020


One (of many) things I’ve learned from the compulsory homeschooling forced upon us by the quarantine is that homeschooling is difficult. Setting aside the environmental and psychological aspects (the role of “parent/teacher” is wildly unpopular in our house for all parties) some subjects, such as English, are quite challenging.

Ten Recent Changes That Could Help You in 2020


News is coming fast and furious these days—so much so, it’s difficult to remember the morning news in the evening (much less what happened yesterday or last week). Day-to-day planning has taken priority over long-term financial planning, and it’s getting easier to lose sight of the forest through the trees.

Q1 2020 Commentary April 6, 2020


Lost among the shocking headlines we saw last quarter was the passing of country music legend Kenny Rogers.

Update March 20, 2020


The markets remain volatile—slightly up one day, down the next, rinse, wash repeat—and frankly, we expect this to continue until news surrounding the Coronavirus stabilizes. There are many predictions and opinions about when that could happen, but we are not virologists or pandemic experts. We do believe with more testing will come more cases which means to us, any true normalcy in the markets and life, is probably at least a few weeks away.
