Women’s Day – How Can Women Make Financial Progress? by Jason Witcher

On March 8, we observe International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is “Press for Progress,” and events around the world will celebrate women’s advancements in the political, social and cultural arenas. But right here in the United States, women still face barriers to their financial progress. If you’re a woman, you need to recognize these challenges – and respond to them.

Hunting for Bargains – Are They Really Out There? by Deon Cannon

It’s in our nature to search high and low for a good deal, especially in real estate and the stock market.  We’ve all heard the comment, “Buy low, and sell high.” Of course, that’s just common sense. In real estate, whether it is a place to call home, investment property or a business location, everyone wants a good deal when it’s time to buy.  Conversely, property sellers are looking for the best margins too, unless perhaps they are overly extended and cash flow is shrinking.

The Ultimate Love Letter

When you love someone, it’s the big and the little things that make it last. Whether you are unclogging the toilet, earning money for the mortgage, washing the dishes and dirty clothes, listening to their day, their challenges or managing investments for a long-term payoff, to name a few.

Love does everything it can to protect and preserve.

Tax Refund

You may not get much of a thrill from filing your taxes, but the process becomes much more enjoyable if you’re expecting a refund. So, if one is headed your way, what should you do with the money? The answer depends somewhat on the size of the refund. For the 2017 tax year, the average refund was about $2,760 – not a fortune, but big enough to make an impact in your life. Suppose, for example, that you invested this amount in a tax-deferred vehicle, such as a traditional IRA and then did not add another penny to it for 30 years.
