Jack Buchanan, Founder and President
An Inspiring Thought for the Week
Franklin D. Roosevelt's Inaugural Address
“This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself —nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
We hope you find our new interactive weekly eMagazine helpful during these difficult Covid-19 days. We plan to publish a new edition every Monday morning with an inspiring message of hope to start your week. The eMagazine is unique in that it will be interactive. Unlike most magazines which are one-way streets, this one is a two-way where readers are given the opportunity to contribute content and articles.

Just the Facts, Ma'am
The Truth Matters
“Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts.” We hear a lot these days about “alternative facts” or in the movie “Something’s Gotta Give,” Harry, played by Jack Nicholson, told his new girlfriend, Erica, played by Diane Keaton, when she caught him in a restaurant with another date, “I have never lied to you, I have always told you some version of the truth.”
Blindsided
B y:Jack Buchanan

Suddenly we are faced with very challenging times. It’s surreal. It’s like a bad dream or a frightening movie. We can hardly believe what we are experiencing. What happened? How did the world get blindsided by such a treacherous and destructive enemy that just seemed to have come out of nowhere?

Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome
B y: Nick Kacher

I am traveling to a meeting in Chicago to make a presentation and while I have my toothbrush and an extra pair of socks, I realize my laptop is sitting next to my bed. What do I do?

Member Virtual Meet Up

During these unprecedented times we need to do things a little differently. With so many in-person events cancelled this year, Primerus would like to provide an opportunity for the membership to connect virtually. During the video conference call, we hope you will share information about your firm, how you and your firm are adjusting to the current global pandemic, and how we can all provide assistance to each other. We would like to see as many Primerus faces as we can, and hope that you can join us!
