Happy Thursday,

I would like to take a moment to thank my incredible Apriem Team for persevering during these challenging times. Many of my team members have been working remotely for weeks but continue to provide the service and communication to you; our valued clients, friends and family. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of their loved ones and for that I am grateful. I would also like to acknowledge our business partners at Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. who continue to ensure that our clients are getting the service they need with their accounts.Teamwork truly does make the dream work, and I believe I have the best team. Thank you!

At least 25 states are starting to reopen their economies in some meaningful way. States may have their own specific guidelines of what businesses are allowed to open, but they are all steps in the right direction. The Federal Government is still funding a second round of loans that are aimed to help even more small companies with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Individuals are finding there way back to work, which is another positive sign for the economy. With every week going forward, the hope is that more people will reclaim there jobs and businesses will begin to rebuild and recover.

What the world is awaiting for is a vaccine and there is some promise on the horizon. So until then in these new normal times I am excited to continue our Women of Wisdom program virtually with our first event, Financial Planning 101 – 1000 Potential Futures, on Thursday, May 21st. For all the ladies out there, if you did not receive your invitation yesterday to RSVP click here. We will be hosting more virtual events for all clients in the upcoming weeks and months, so stay tuned.

Although, life may not be back to normal nothing has changed at Apriem, we are always here for you.
