The Dog Days of Summer
Greetings!
It's hard to stay cool in the blazing "dog days" of summer. Even though it's not an environmentally friendly idea, you can always blast the AC and stay indoors. But here are four other ways to keep cool while you're out and about:

  • Drink more water! Follow the 8-by-8 Rule (drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day to help you stay hydrated and feel cooler).
  • Avoid eating hot foods (forget the hot soups and heavy meals and go with salads and cold sandwiches or maybe switch it up with a refreshing cold gazpacho).
  • Exercise in the water (pool walking, anyone?).
  • Apply an ice pack to your wrists, forehead and neck periodically to cool off.
 Inside this issue of Your Monthly Wealth Preservation Update , you'll read about some new tax changes on the horizon as well as the latest on the Fiduciary Rule. We also answer some of the frequently asked questions heard here at the office. For more information about anything you've read in this issue, we welcome you to contact us . Enjoy a safe and happy end of summer!

However, according to language from former Department of Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, stated in early May of 2019, the DOL is working with the SEC to resurrect the fiduciary rule. Read More
