From the firm: Keeping a healthy perspective

These days, we find ourselves in an ever-changing and advancing environment—from new apps for improved multitasking and instant messaging, to scanning groceries and paying for them simultaneously as we shop, to getting same-day delivery on almost anything.

The world around us moves faster and faster, and we’re constantly urged to keep pace. While instant gratification sounds nice, we’d like to encourage you to take the long view when it comes to developing your business and living your life. That’s going to take patience, faith and understanding to know you’ll get to where you want to go—it won’t happen overnight, and it will take some effort. But it will be worth it!

Join us as we share some tips in this issue. Start with a business valuation to see where the health of your business stands and where it could go. And work now to make a solid tax plan for next year, so you’re not scrambling to get things done— take intentional time to really plan for your future. Concerned about your finances if you add children to your family? We also talk about tax credits that can help ease some financial hesitation if or when you decide to expand your family tree.

And don’t forget to take care of yourself, too. The foods you eat can affect both your physical and mental health. Review our list of scary snacks masquerading as healthy and ditch the extra sugary and artificially flavored culprits. You may be surprised by the foods that claim health benefits.

As fall’s favorite sport gets started, we’ve cooked up the ultimate football tailgating menu to impress your friends and family. And while you’re at it, during pregame festivities, take a trip down memory lane for a much-needed laugh to see how well you know your high school TV trivia.

Here’s to taking the long view,

Your trusted advisors
