Due to many factors, your financial results for YTD 2020 very likely differ from original forecasts.
In these uncertain times there are so many changes and adjustments to financial situations—thus tax impacts. For today, I want to look a bit deeper into refunds received by college students who paid tuition from a 529 savings plan.
I found myself riding in a Seahawk helicopter coming in on a ship. I was just a passenger, but there was a Chief who was training a new sailor to get qualified for his aircrew badge. This sailor’s job was to watch out of the door of the aircraft. His job, his ONLY job, was to watch a specific part of the rotors, and if he thought we were going to hit a line or a tower or anything else, to waive off, abort the landing and we would try again.
Perhaps you can relate. My day-to-day job requires me to use my brain, not my hands. Analyzing, thinking, planning, communicating and many hours behind a computer screen. Mentally challenging work is very rewarding, but I picked up woodworking as productive, hands-on outlet for when I’m not “on the job." Hours spent on woodworking projects have reinforced some basic lessons that contribute to business success as well.
