Merry Christmas from Zeke-a Claus!

Posted by:

Last year, Zeke the Elf (and cousin of one of our founders, Gerald ‘Zeke’ Strid) recorded a Christmas message for us.

This year we were honored that the big man himself, Zeke-a Claus, paid our office a visit and made a special video for all our clients, friends and family.

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Posted by:

A new report by Charles Schwab appears to have unlocked the secret to successful retirement planning: put it in writing. The report found that people who have a written retirement plan were 60 percent more likely to increase their 401(k) contributions and twice as likely to stick to a monthly savings goal.

– Warren Buffett

Knowledgeable college football fans are aware of the sign which is posted in Notre Dame’s football locker room, the legendary “Play Like a Champion Today” sign. There is a story that the great investor Warren Buffett liked the sign so much, that he made a similar one for his office. Buffett admits that he has no idea what it is about this sign that was so attractive to him, but if it is good enough for the most storied program in college football history, it is good enough for him.

Great Investors Understand Progress

Posted by:

“We’ve got a fully employed economy, rising real wages. We restarted the corporate earnings cycle. We’ve got strong confidence among businesses and consumers.

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
– Mike Tyson

As a disclaimer, I have never been a big boxing fan, although I am a huge sports fan. This week it seems that every time I turn on ESPN, or my favorite sports radio channel, the talk is all focused on the hype surrounding the huge boxing match coming up this weekend between accomplished boxer Floyd Mayweather, and MMA fighter Conor McGregor.
