6. Mind(set) Over Matter

As solos, we spend a lot of time with the thoughts in our heads. It’s important to make sure what we’re thinking about, and how we are thinking, is productive, positive, and sustaining. It’s a key component to our success.

Gaining media placements is never a sure thing, especially in the current landscape. This  episode tackled the best ways to set client expectations and why it’s important to keep our clients updated along the way.

3. Here After

We solos are planners. But how many of us have made known our end of life wishes? These tasks can be daunting, but Leslie Jennings Rowley, aka “The Death Lady,” founder of  Hereafter Partners shares how we can make the end of life process less worrisome and conversations about death, dying, and aging more normalized in today’s society. 

2. Talking Financial Strategies with Andrew Shapowal of Canon Capital Management Group

With all of the current economic uncertainties, Solos have every right to be on edge. We checked in with Andrew Shapowal,  Senior Accountant and Digital Asset Specialist with Canon Capital Management Group, on hot button financial topics such as retirement, kids going to college and how to keep your head above water when prices keep rising.
