The Gift of Celebration
With this wonderful season of joy, generosity, family, and celebration, now is the opportunity to weave lasting wisdom and values into your family gatherings.

Generosity in the Story of Christmas
Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the joy and cheer, sweet treats, and the wonder in my children’s eyes when they come down the stairs on Christmas morning. But the thing I love most is the Christmas story! In Chip Ingram’s book, Genius of Generosity, he gives a beautiful picture of how true generosity is demonstrated in the Christmas story. To better explain this, let’s look at the six types of gifts given in the Christmas story. Gift of Treasure – The Wise Men As the leading astrologers of their time, the Magi studied the stars and…Read More

The first Thanksgiving celebration was held in Massachusetts sometime in December 1621 during the Pilgrims’ second winter in America. The first winter had claimed the lives of 44 out of 102 of the original colonists.…Read More
Charitable Strategy: The Most Missed Element in Business Sales
It happens time and again. While most owners have 80-90% of their assets locked up inside of their business, it’s remarkable how unprepared many of them are at the point of sale. Indeed, at the point of sale the business owner, and the advisory team, should do everything they can to maximize the sale. But many business owners completely miss a key element in the sale process: a charitable strategy. A study by the Exit Planning Institute (EPI) for Georgia in 2018 revealed that historical transition success rates are only 20-30% nationwide. EPI notes that “preparing for a business sale is an urgent imperative,…Read More
Year-end checklist for Advisors
The leaves and the weather are changing, so that means it is time to start year-end planning sessions with your clients. Take some extra time this fall to consider some of these simple year-end charitable and tax-planning strategies: Bunch a bunch Because of the 2017 tax law changes, several clients may not have enough itemized deductions to surpass the 2019 standard deduction threshold ($12,200 for individuals and $24,400 for married couples filing jointly). However, clients can maximize their deductions by doubling or tripling up charitable contributions one year and skipping the next year(s). This strategy is referred to as “bunching”…Read More
