Focus On What You Can Control

Are you getting tired of hearing the word ‘unprecedented’? I certainly am,but it does seem the best descriptor for the times we’re in. We’ve never experienced the combination of a health and economic crisis, and although there are positive signs on the horizon, the uncertainty of what will happen next can be stressful.

So, let’s focus on what we can be certain about.Financial-wise, refocus your certainty around your long-term goals. We have a strategy that will help you achieve them.

Another thing we can count on is lessons from our mothers or the mother figures in our life. For me,the past few weeks have given me a greater appreciation for the work that goes into keeping a home running smoothly, along with the money lessons like budgeting, living within our means, and avoiding debt. These are all things my mother taught me. Even though we can’t be together in person next weekend, we should all be grateful for our mothers. Take the time to thank her, and deepen the connection with the conversation with the suggestions in the article below.

Here are some articles I found insightful. Enjoy and feel free to share them with your network.
