COVID-19 Updates

March 19, 2020

Message from our co-founders, Karin and Sheila

We know that these times are extremely stressful for all. Understandably most of us are experiencing fear and trying to make personal and financial decisions within a rapidly changing environment. We are monitoring the situation very closely and feel encouraged by what’s happening in China with the dramatic reduction in new COVID-19 cases. Our governments, businesses and citizens are also responding with swift and dramatic action to address the threats to our health and economic well-being.



The current crisis will eventually end and while it may take time for the stock market and the economy to recover, the world will survive and eventually thrive. This is not the end. As humans, we are being called on to reach inside and find inner strength and resilience and to respond to the crisis with as much patience, love, empathy, kindness as we can for our leaders, medical personnel, front-line service workers and each other.

Decluttering your Money and Taking Control

Decluttering your Money and Taking Control

Week 7 of the lockdown. Unlike some of my friends and family, I haven’t taken up baking, crafting or the ukulele, but I am following the news more than ever. A bit obsessively, I must admit. I keep hoping with every article I read to find the facts or insights that will predict the impact that COVID-19 will have on our clients, our coaches, our business and on the whole concept of long range planning.

Nope, the future isn’t clear yet. And, I know I’m not the only one who finds this stressful.

With so much out of our control, I have found that focusing on small organizing tasks that I get a sense of completion and satisfaction from, like reorganizing my bookshelf, doing the dishes, deadheading flowers, is helping me stay grounded.

Here are a few financial tasks that you might want to check off your list during the next few weeks.

  • We want to thank Steve for his incredible help with setting us up with a sound financial plan that we will be able to continue to follow for years to come. With his professional, caring, and understanding approach, Steve got to know us so that he could help us to set up a plan that was personalized to our goals.

  • For several years, my wife and I made repeated attempts to devise a strategy for managing our finances. It seemed we were constantly modifying our plans to accommodate our inability to meet our own goals. Hiring Christine has since proven to be the best financial decision we have made to date.

    – M & L Stevenson

  • I received an inheritance and was feeling lots of stress and pressure to invest it wisely. I didn’t have a retirement plan and the uncertainty was weighing on me. Since working with Annie, I feel much more relaxed, confident and in control of my finances. She listened and everything was tailored towards me. I now have a retirement plan, a road map and know I can retire.

    – S McKenzie, Burnaby

  • Dealing with finances day-to-day was absolutely agonizing, even the smallest decisions about money were incredibly painful. Working with Noel has definitely helped our family feel more in control of our finances, and consequently, our lives. After getting our finances sorted out amidst a number of other big life changes, we feel like anything is possible. The value far exceeded what we hoped. We’re beyond grateful for the plan to get ourselves on track.

    – Nick H.

  • We were frustrated and confused. We knew our income was good but couldn’t wrap our heads around why we weren’t making any head way. Tom was great! Considering our priorities forced us to face our spending issues and work together to get back on track. We finally saw our debt reducing and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was probably the best financial decision we have ever made. Definitely strengthened our marriage.
