TheLiveBigWay® Digest: Filling Your Free Time
Money Market Fund Focus
As part of our strategy in managing the cash holdings in our Clients’ portfolios, Yeske Buie employs a handful of Money Market Funds (MMFs) and in volatile times like these, the role MMFs play in our Clients’ accounts comes sharply into focus. In this piece, we’ll share more about the MMFs Yeske Buie uses in our Clients’ portfolios, with specific focus on the Value Advantage Money Fund.
Many agree, there’s no better time than now to jump into a new book! Whether you’re looking to fill some extra time or to escape from COVID anxieties, reading can be a great outlet during these turbulent times. With this and in recognition of financial literacy month, we share a few of our favorite financial reads that book lovers of all ages can enjoy. If any of these books pique your interest, let us know and we’ll send a copy to your home. Learn more about our financial literacy program.
Tuning Out the Noise
While we believe that staying informed of ongoing news is important, financial news often feels more like financial “noise” that is designed to stimulate an emotional reaction and doesn’t tell a full story. For those needing a break from the noise, we suggest tuning into stories that stimulate more wholesome emotions, like John Krasinski’s Some Good News videos and Andrea Bocelli’s beautiful Music for Hope concert. What have you come across that’s filled your heart or made you laugh? Let us know so we can continue to update our Stay Safe, Stay Home, Live Big post with ideas to brighten our days. Stay well!
For the Yeske Buie team, regular connection has been helping us stay grounded, and it has been an honor to connect with our Yeske Buie community in real-time via various live webinar experiences. Each of our events over the past three weeks has been recorded, so if you were unable to attend or if you’d like to watch them again, please visit the links below. Stay tuned for announcements regarding future events and webinars – we look forward to connecting with you again, soon!

Here’s a few links to some of the latest government updates we feel are most relevant for our Clients.
