Protecting your most valuable asset — your family

FROM THE DESK OF

DeDe Soto

Happy October! Which means happy fall!

Although we don’t have a change of colors here in California, hopefully, we will have a change of weather! Change is coming. I once read you are always either preparing to go through change, going through change, or coming out of change! With so much change that happens in one’s lifetime, I do hope your estate plan will be updated and change with you. Some changes include the following: having a baby, your child getting married, getting a divorce, getting married, a loved one passing, or your child having marital issues or even mental health issues. There are ways to protect your children and family with a little bit of planning. I love this saying: “Plan for what is difficult while it is easy. Do what is great while it is small.”With that, I hope to hear from you soon, and I hope you will pass this along to your family and friends who need to review and plan their estates.

If excessive routine has made your office yawn-inducing or has mummified your employees at their desks, a crisis is likely nearby. One CNN article postulated that boredom is “the new stress,” and bored employees are more likely to be unhappy and seek new positions, even if they’re still effective. To keep boredom levels in check, try to automate repetitive tasks, offer new challenges, and encourage communication.

GOSSIP: THE WEREWOLF

Gossip is like a werewolf. It doesn’t show up every day, but, when it does, it wreaks havoc. Rumors quickly destroy morale, erode relationships, and ramp up workplace tension. Worse, they can cause even the most dedicated employees to quit due to what’s often labeled as a “toxic” office culture. Inc. Magazine claims that zero-tolerance policies, regular meetings to air
