A Different Kind of Wealth Management Guides Us Now

by Renée Louzon-Benn, President, Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce

As we near the holiday season and look forward to the new year, it is both a time of endings and beginnings. It’s often been said that the holidays should not be about spending money on gifts and receiving gifts, although both are true.

It’s about a different interpretation of wealth management. This time of year we reflect on wealth that isn’t financial. We can count our many blessings: good health, friends and family, jobs, optimism and appreciation — also, a sense of humor can come in handy, especially after a year like 2020.


What we have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic is to make the most of every day, so each day is another opportunity to try things a new way. To use a golfing term, it’s like a mulligan — a “do-over.”

Let’s be grateful that we have another day to touch base with those closest to our hearts, to be creative, to learn, to heal, to help our community in whatever way we can and to try to straighten out anything that may be off-kilter in our lives.

Starting now, we can embrace our real treasures. Making the choice to live our lives to the fullest. You know wealth management.

I wish each of you a safe, healthy and very happy holiday season. Remember, shop local!
