What’s in a newsletter?

More than meets the eye, actually. First, we put it together ourselves each month, with contributions from different members of our team. Second, we recently changed the format of our newsletter... this new email format has LINKS to the body of the various articles. This allows us to track which articles get read, and which get ignored. We hope to use this information to focus on topics of interest to our clients.

If something sounds interesting, please click the link and take a look! Of course, there is no substitute for direct feedback... so feel free to email me with your comments, critiques, and ideas. We try to provide a mix of lifestyle and financial articles each month, with more of a financial focus at the end of each calendar quarter. Let us know what you like, and what you don’t.

And if by chance your computer doesn’t like our links, or you just prefer a PDF file, let us know and we’ll certainly accommodate you.

Now, scroll down and click away!

Thank you,
