Six Feet Apart (is too far)

Six Feet Apart (is too far)

We, as humans, are social beings.  Community is important, social contact is important, person to person conversations are important.  It is a little funny how much we take these things for granted until, it is in the best interest of caring for others that we avoid...

Not My First Rodeo

Not My First Rodeo

I am convinced at Intentional Wealth Advisors we have by far the best clients and friends.  How do I know this?  Because I have spoken with so many of them during the market tumult recently.  Almost to a person, they have asked about me and how I am doing. I have...

Volatility

How Insecure is Corporate America?

How Insecure is Corporate America?
