May 2023

Hello Marion!

The month of May is filled with appreciation for many groups of people. It celebrates the teachers that have worked tirelessly this year educating and supporting our nations youth. It gives us an excuse to pamper all the different types of mothers that have raised us, and it reminds us of the brave soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice of laying their life down to protect our nation and our freedoms in America.

To add to the celebration, we have added a new member to our FSA Team this month! Please read below to get to know more about Mariana, our Office Manager.

We hope you have a wonderful rest of May and are wishing you the best as the summer season quickly approaches.

Until next time,

The Financial Steward Associates Team

Weighing The Pros And Cons of Pet Ownership.

There are potential health benefits, but also costs.

Approximately 23 million American households added new pets to their homes during

the pandemic, according to a nationwide poll by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).1 Now, about 70 percent of U.S. households have pets—primarily cats and dogs, but also birds, fish, rabbits, ferrets, reptiles, and more.2 You may be wondering, “Is that good or not?” The answer depends on who you talk to, how well-prepared they were for their new pet, and your perspective—based on your own experience with pets. In the interest of positivity, we’ll save the best for last.
