To our clients, family and friends,
Words don’t begin to describe some of what we are seeing in our community and economy. Up until recently, pandemics were something we read about in history books and novels. We now know these can hit us in the US and this reality is hitting home for all business leaders and workers alike.
Because of this, we are offering financial education to employees and business owners. We know that many people are losing their jobs and businesses due to this virus. This was unexpected, unforeseen, and often unplanned for. Our prayer is that it is short-lived, but we know that in the meantime, people are hurting.
Therefore, we at Sound Financial are offering financial education phone meetings with no strings attached. We want to serve our community. We are a decades-old wealth management firm in Jackson, MS, and are blessed to be in a stable position with experienced advisors that know how to help people in this extreme financial crisis.
Our invitation is for our clients, family/friends, and the public.
You, as an employee or business leader, are having to make tough decisions. You may be faced with a mandatory shut down, possibly reduced income, or your work/business may be in the middle of this fight. As this is a multifront battle in our communities, many of us are in the thick of the action, all while taking care of our own families. So, let us help you.
If you have questions about debt management, disaster relief lending, assets/liabilities, investments/insurance, or simply want someone to brainstorm ideas with, we will be happy to have a call with you and help any way that we can.
To be clear, we are not charging and there are no strings attached. At this time, we simply want to serve people.
You can contact us at 877-462-3744 or email us email@example.com.
Chris McAlpin, Managing Partner
