Today's Key Question:

The article below from Wealth Advisor discusses a common problem with estate planning: friction among siblings. Some good tips are provided to minimize the damage.

I would like to add that life insurance is often used for this purpose, to equalize estate distributions. Feel free to contact me for more information.



"4-Hour Hiring, Welcome Swag, and Other Covid-Era Recruiting Tips"

From Inc.

* Even as the pandemic wreaks havoc on jobs, many employers across the U.S. small and large are still hiring--and Covid-19 is pushing them to adopt new and creative recruiting strategies.



“How to Find a Job During a Pandemic”

From Entrepreneur:

* I am no stranger to the world of unemployment, but when I was let go from my role as an events manager at Oracle earlier this year, I still panicked. With so many people in the world being made redundant at once, I was worried about how I would fare against other job seekers in the market.
