July Tips and To Dos
This month’s tips and to-dos are inspired by the increased popularity of recognizing fun and wacky holidays.

Amazon Prime Day
Prime Day is an annual event featuring special savings deals. We don’t encourage superfluous spending, however. Rather, we think this day provides a timely reminder to review and cancel unused subscriptions.
National Mortgage Day
Good financial planning requires close collaboration with the other professionals (like mortgage brokers) on your financial team. In this vein, we share our Reverse Mortgage Mini-Series Part I, Part II, and Part III.
National Parents Day
The parent-child relationship is no doubt a special one. Because of the complexity of the relationship, however, it can be difficult to have important money conversations with your parent(s). Here’s a few tips.

Ask Us Anything: Enlightening Listeners
Many of our meetings with Clients begin with a simple question: tell us about yourself. From there, we listen. We consider it a genuine privilege to learn about your loved ones, your big life transitions, your goals, and your adventures, and it is our hope that you feel heard and understood anytime you engage with us. Today’s Ask Us Anything question touches on the importance of active listening and creating a safe space for Clients to share – we’re all ears.
