Campbell Wealth Management - May 2021

How to Live to 99 Beloved “Golden Girls” actress Betty White is still enjoying her golden years. The famed actress celebrated her 99th birthday this January. While she told People magazine that she’s “blessed with good health, so turning 99 is no different than turning 98,” she also had a few tips for folks looking to make it to their centennial birthday. Keep Laughing “Don’t take yourself too seriously,” White says. “You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.” White has undoubtedly provided many laughs to viewers over the years, but she’s not just playing it up for the camera. Laughter is part of what keeps her young. Be Optimistic White says a good sense of humor also helps her keep a good attitude and look for the positive rather than “dwelling on the downside.” Avoiding negativity also gives her energy. “It takes up too much energy being negative,” she told People magazine.

Crossword puzzles! She told Katie Couric in an interview, “I’m addicted. An admitted addict. I just can’t put ’em down.” Find a Cause White is a lifelong animal lover. She calls her golden retriever, Pontiac, “the star of the house.” While pet ownership itself comes with proven health benefits, White has channeled her love for animals in bigger causes.

Funds raised from White’s official fan club, Bet’s Pets, all go to support animal charities. Embrace Your Vices White told Parade she loves vodka and hot dogs “probably in that order,” which just goes to show that you don’t have to forgo your treats to live to 99.

Meet Gabe Muller and Phil Wolf! The CWM Team Grows

A team is only as strong as its players. As mentioned in this month’s cover article, we recently brought on two new team members to strengthen our team and deliver an even higher level of service to our clients. Meet Gabe Muller and Phil Wolf! Gabe Muller joins CWM as our new Chief Operating Officer. He joins us with over 10 years in executive operations experience. He was a COO at a top-level company in the D.C. area for a number of years. We’ve actually known Gabe for some time. He’s worked with CWM in assessing the Kolbe personality test. Kolbe is something we use in our hiring process to gain further insight into our team members. At his last firm, Gabe helped lead his company to rank No. 1 as the “Best Place to Work” in Washington, D.C., by Washingtonian magazine. Gabe is also a pilot and runs a local pilot association.

Phil Wolf is our new Director of Finance. He takes over the role from Kim Campbell, who was our Director of Finance for many years. Kim's entrepreneurial spirit was drawing her towards her passion for horses and other animal services. These interests were requiring more of her time and, as Campbell Wealth grew, she felt the firm would benefit from adding someone that could dedicate their full time to supporting that growth. Phil has over 25 years in the financial industry and has worked with one of the big six accounting firms. He was referred to us by a good friend who ran a successful company and sold it — Phil was his Chief Financial Officer. Phil is certainly not short on experience! At CWM, we look forward to beginning this new chapter of service with Gabe and Phil. We anticipate nothing but great things, and we’ll be cheering them on!
