"We acquire strength we have overcome." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

To our healthcare workes, first responders and essential workers, THANK YOU! No words seem adequate to express my admiration and gratitude to the brave men and women who have worked tirelessly to save the lives of others. 

As virtual becomes the new normal and the imposition of severe restrictions continues, I want to remind you to reach out to neighbors, friends, and loved ones who may be struggling with mental illness, depression, and anxiety during this unprecedented time. With so many Americans losing their jobs or taking on more responsibility, financial obligations may become difficult. The thought of never going back to the way things were can be hard to grasp. If you find that you would like to discuss your situation and review your portfolio, please contact my office to schedule a virtual meeting, phone conference, or in-person visit (with precautions taken at check-in). We are here to help!

I am uniquely blessed to be a part of a profession that is considered essential. Helping others navigate through this difficult time with financial guidance and potential solutions is what makes me get up every day and do what I do.  I am grateful for today and look forward to a better tomorrow. I have helped many people build a solid financial future and I would be honored to assist you with yours.  

Call my office at 530-753-4195 or send me an e-mail at mjpratt@ft.newyorklife.com to schedule some time to chat.
