It’s all about Fiscal Endurance

Happy New Year! As you look forward to the year ahead, we’re encouraging you to not only focus on fiscal fitness in January, but to stay fiscally fit all year round. 

Fiscal Endurance in 2021

Every January, people make intentions to save more, spend less and get organized. For many people the events of last year got in the way of making those goals a reality. But they also highlighted the importance of maintaining fiscal endurance throughout the year. Like the old adage goes, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Whether you run a business or a household, it’s more important than ever to plan ahead and develop a safety net to help address unexpected challenges.

Lessons Learned in 2020

One of the frustrating things we heard time and time again last year was this: people couldn’t get ahold of their banks when they needed them most. Small businesses, especially, suffered when they needed answers about PPP loans but had to wait while bigger businesses consumed more attention from their mega banks and credit unions. Planning ahead and staying fiscally fit all year round requires a strong relationship with a bank that is responsive, reliable and fast.
