Work from Home - Is it Here to Stay?
Post by : Admin on Jan 21,2021
Before the COVID-19 crisis arrived, many companies had experimented to some degree with remote working conditions. While the intentions were good, the idea didn’t really catch in the way that companies might have envisioned. The pandemic basically crammed the idea down the throats of Corporate America as tens of millions of people transitioned to work-from-home mode virtually overnight. No matter what industry you work in, things changed. The one service we need the most right now is h...

The pandemic has clearly changed the world.

Welcome to a Year of Hope
Post by : Admin on Jan 04,2021
Welcome to 2021 and what is hopefully a kinder year than 2020 was. They say that hindsight is 20-20. With that in mind, let us not look back over our shoulder at where we have been but rather, look forward to where we are going. We clearly learned how to live and survive in a pandemic. Just because the year changed from 2020 to 2021 does not mean the pandemic no longer exists. But, more importantly, as we arrive in 2021, we arrive with hope. The hope exists with modern medicine and scien...
Good Riddance 2020
Post by : Admin on Dec 23,2020
One year ago this week, we had so much promise ahead of us as we prepared to enter into 2020. The year 2020 had such a nice sound to it. TWENTY-TWENTY. It was a year that sounded so futuristic back in the 60’s and 70’s. We had so much hope for what the futuristic 2020 would deliver to us. What 2020 actually delivered was the equivalent of two black eyes, a bloody nose and a few broken ribs. 2020 arrived simply enough like the beginning of each new year. We had new goals, new resol...
Monitoring Depression in the Pandemic
Post by : Admin on Dec 18,2020
One of the nasty side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is depression, anxiety and fear of the unknown future. As salons, restaurants, bars, gyms and other businesses have closed, the opportunities to socialize with fellow humans has been dramatically reduced and is not within our control. Since we have been asked to “socially distance” since March in hope that we can get the virus under control, many people feel isolated and alone. What used to be a quick trip to the grocery store ma...

Post by : Admin on Dec 10,2020
While we usually try to stay within our lane, we know that many of our corporate clients and business accounts took advantage of the PPP loans offered to help businesses stay afloat during the pandemic.

We have some important information from the Small Business Administration (SBA) that includes a simple one-page forgiveness application. If your loan was less than $50,000 you...

The End of the Handshake Era
Post by : Admin on Nov 24,2020
Boys are taught from a young age the importance of a good handshake. A good handshake requires a firm grip and direct eye contact. It isn’t just guys who do handshakes. Ladies shake hands as well. We all have been taught some basic rules about handshakes. A wimpy handshake conveys that you really don’t care or that the handshake is not genuine or sincere. A handshake that is too firm from a man to a woman can be painful. It does appear that the handshake, a tradition known to have ex...
