Remember, the only choice is optimism, the pessimists never get it right.

I heard a quote once, and it went like this. “If the federal government were in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years, there would be a shortage of sand”. (Source unknown)

Last week witnessed the epitome of divided government. After months of haggling, there appeared to be a bi-partisan agreement on an infrastructure bill at a $1.2 Trillion cost. Before the ink was dry, news came out that squashed any hope for co-operation in Washington.

At this time, the economy is recovering with equity markets setting new all-time highs. One of my resources maintains that only “Policy Change” can dampen or affect the economy as the necessary pieces continue to come together. Policy change being new taxes and regulations.

I’m not making any predictions on how any of this is going to play out, but I do believe that we need to be prepared. The second article attached “Financial Planning for Generations”, contains a list of items that should be periodically reviewed, discussed, and adjusted if necessary.

Last week, Jean & I were in California visiting with my sisters, one of which we hadn’t seen in quite some time. After reading and attaching the article about “No Regrets…” last week, we’ve decided to check a few items off ours and seeing family was an important one. I hope you get the chance to do the same.

As always, should you have any questions or wish to meet with or talk with me, please don’t hesitate to email, or call. Now, let’s all go out and have a super week.
