With Rosh Hashana, dance classes and tryouts for “The Nutcracker” (not me; my daughter, Taylor!), and my daughter Hailey’s IEP, it was such a busy week! I didn’t want to let the opportunity go by, though, without getting some timely information to you about what is on everyone’s mind, what with the bailout, the dire predictions about Wall Street, and all the things associated with it.

Has Wall Street or the economy got you down? Well, don’t let it. The economy will always bounce back. Wallstreet is cyclical, and if you look at the patterns over time, it has always gone up. Yours will too.

We’re all stressed by the economy. Maybe we’ve taken on too much debt; maybe we have rental properties that are lying vacant; maybe we have a retail business, and customers aren’t as plentiful.

But nobody is talking about how this is affecting them. Maybe were worried about our ego, or think that we can solve it on our own. Without talking about the problem, the problems just eat you up inside and continue to escalate.

I’ve been thinking about how I can add the most value for my clients during this difficult time of financial turmoil.

I’m here for you. It’s time you start talking about the problems. Once you open up and talk about them, I can help you find solutions. And you’ll be amazed at the relief you feel knowing that there is a solution, and it will get better.

If you are facing mountains of debt and don’t know how you are going to get out the mess you are in, don’t keep it a secret. If you are building your business and need the inspiration to keep going, ask for support. If you are wondering whether you are on the right track, don’t wonder alone.

If you’ve got more than $100,000 in the bank, make sure it’s protected. Download Alexis Martin Neely’s easy to understand report on keeping your money safe. FDIC insurance can be confusing. Her report simplifies it.

If you are a client, call the office. We’re here for you. Our Family Wealth VIP Membership Program was created just for this purpose. So, we can provide you with ongoing personalized guidance without charging you hourly fees.

If you’re not a client, you can reach me on my personal blog. I’ll do my best to respond to your needs.

It’s time to ask for help and guidance. There’s nothing to be embarrassed, afraid or ashamed of. Your questions are valid and deserve to be answered. I’ve been there and I’m here now. Ask away.

With Love,

Gerry
