Fake IRS Calls – Interesting “Saving” Consumer – Birthday Boy The Brain! – Travels Next Week

After hearing multiple contacts by fake IRS calls, we were scratching our heads as to why! DOH….we understand now… these guys are really getting good.

Next Monday, October 17th, 2016 is the deadline for filing personal extensions. Timely fake calls.

Do not be fooled…it is easy to do if they catch you at the right time!

Interesting Consumer

In a recent Gallop pole, a broad group of folks are now finding it more important to save, rather than spend.

Wow…. we want to dig deeper into this.

Initially this data may mean a headwind to the economy as consumer spending makes up the majority of the US  Economy and economic growth.  HOWEVER a healthier, financially stronger, happy consumer EVENTUALLY will feel empowered.

We like these types of numbers !

Birthday Boy

Due to confidentiality we can write very little about specific individuals… But a shout out to Donald “The Brain” on his Birthday today is ok !

Happy Birthday DC .. Thanks for all you do for all of us!


Next week (and later today) the schedule has out of state (and town) travels. This is the last for a while, and both include the gang, so all good …. Ahh, but that is next week and today is your Friday heading into a super fall temperature feeling weekend.

Enjoy your day, your Birthday and your weekend !
