I just wanted to take a moment to check in on everyone, make sure you are staying home, staying healthy (you and your family) and settling into the work/live at home new normal.
This has been a rough week for us in that we are working 10-12 hrs a day to communicate to our clients to reassure them, trading for all tax losses, trying to maintain status quo with tax season (which in some parts has been extended to July), and dealing with operational issues. This too shall pass, and hopefully the market will become less volatile next week and we can be more proactive and not reacting to the daily news. As you have seen, we have sent something to you almost daily on overall planning/news, and based on our calls, we appreciate your thankfulness that we are on top on your planning and thinking about you. Clients Come First.
We are so fortunate that we/our families are healthy, and we have a profession that we can still work (albeit a little challenged). I am sure you have read/watched the news about the employment impact, and we are hearing stories from our clients of what they are doing to ensure their companies survive. This is real, and will be long lasting in many ways.
Today we (Wellspring) are making a financial contribution to both the Cleveland Food Bank and The Cleveland Foundation’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund (which has already raised ~$4mm) – see links below.
We all need to do our part to help those that are less fortunate. While we are inconvenienced for a while, we are not struggling like so many others at this point in this health/financial crisis. We Are a Family that Supports Other Families.
Stay healthy, and be well.
