We invite you to join us for a virtual session on life before, during, and after COVID-19.

4:15-5 PM Fighting Financial Uncertainty with Resiliency Barry Betters, CFP® It can be difficult to plan your finances under normal financial circumstances, and even more challenging during the uniquely uncertain times caused by the COVID-19 crisis. This presentation will focus on providing you with the tools and information necessary to weather this storm, and create a plan to be ready for the next one. The only way through this is to be organized, understand the resources available to you and make a plan that helps you control the things you can. There are no new or unique solutions in this material, just good common sense steps that should be practiced at all times to remain resilient.
