How a CFP Celebrates Her Money Wins

People may often imagine that when they reach their milestones, there will be fireworks and party buses along with a huge celebration. And while sometimes there are, most wins are simply small steps you take every day until one day you wake up where you visualized you would be. That is why it is important to celebrate it all — the ups, the downs, the wins, the steps forward, and sometimes even backward.

Here’s How States Plan To Guard Their Capitol Buildings Ahead of Biden’s Inauguration

States across the country are increasing security and planning for a contentious Inauguration Day after the FBI warned all 50 states of armed protests at every state capitol.

The FBI sent a memo to all 50 states that armed protests are planned for each state capitol and in Washington, D.C,. between last Sunday and at least through Inauguration Day next Wednesday.

So hold off on that neon sign until you know that your customer actually needs your products or services.… Read the rest
