Economic Trends

At this point, we’re all feeling the effects of the last 2 years of broader economic trends. Chances are you’ve experienced the increased cost of goods and services, supply chain issues, or difficulty with hiring. If not, where do you live and can we stay with you? Just until things cool off around here. 🥵

The truth is inflation is not going anywhere, boss. The Federal Reserve recently raised interest rates, by 0.25%, for the first time in 3 years. They also projected that rates could be raised again, this year. But, that doesn’t mean your outlook needs to be bleak. Being boss means staying informed and taking control of your money. So, if you haven’t already reviewed your current pricing, it might be time to take a look and consider raising your rates.

For now, we’ve got your back with some fresh money links.
