TheLiveBigWay* Digest – Get To Know The Yeske Buie Staff

In this edition of the Digest, we invite you to join us at the Vienna Office Open House and share updates from the YeBu staff.

Client Event: Vienna Office Open House
Please join us for the Open House in Vienna, VA on Thursday, March 14th from 4:30pm-6:30pm ET (send us your RSVP). The event will be catered and will include staff from both the Virginia and California offices, which only happens once a year on each coast! We meet semi-annually for our company retreat and each one traditionally ends with the Open House. Speaking of which, below is a picture from our last client event in San Francisco.

Be sure to save the date for the next San Francisco Office Open House later this fall on November 7th.

Being the Change
We just came across a Journal of Financial Planning article written by Bonnie Hughes and it contained extended quotes from Elissa and Dave in response to the question: What do you think is the right thing to be doing for your practice and your clients? We thought you might like to see their answers.

Summar Is Celebrating Her 5th Anniversary With Yeske Buie
As Dave put it, “If you can survive five years at YeBu, you can survive five years at anything!”  Summar started just after Financial Planning Group merged with Yeske & Co. to become Yeske Buie in early 2008, making her our long-standing veteran based out of the Vienna, VA office. She is a Client Service Administrator and is our resident “tech wiz”. If you haven’t worked with her directly, her name may sound familiar from the monthly emails she sends to announce updated Client Private Page® reports.

You can find out more about Summar and the rest of the YeBu staff on the About YeBu section of our website. We just recently updated all of our bios and we encourage you to visit our profiles regularly as the Current Update field will be updated every six to eight weeks.

Dorothy’s Trip to India
Dorothy just recently went on a trip to India where she volunteered at the Apollo Hospital in Raipur, Chhattisgarh.  The hospital partnered with the American Society of Indian Plastic Surgeons to provide health care services to the people of India who otherwise would not have access to those services.

You can view pictures from her trip here or on our Facebook Page, however please keep in mind that some of the pictures are of the hospital patients and may be disturbing.

Reminder – Change to Tax Reporting on Client Private Page®
We will no longer be posting a realized gain/loss report to your Client Private Page® as we have done previously (all other reports will still be available). Please refer to your Schwab 1099 for any taxable accounts such as an individual brokerage account, a joint brokerage account, or a trust. Refer to your Schwab 1099-R for retirement accounts that had distributions.  Schwab sent 1099s in the mail in early February and they are also available if you have an online account at

If you cannot find your Schwab 1099, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll get you a copy.

Yeske Buie’s Social Media Presence
We look forward to being connected with you through our social media outlets and just wanted to remind you that Yeske Buie policy prevents staff from “friending” clients on Facebook.  However, we will continue to share company news and events on the Yeske Buie Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
