VanceWealth Business Owner, Financial Planning

By aligning your business and personal goals, you can achieve more across the board. Setting goals is one thing; however, achieving goals is another. At Vance Wealth, we’ve learned the trick …

2022 – Q1 Investment Update

VanceWealth Financial Planning, Market Commentary, Market Update

Dear Clients and Friends, 2021 was a banner year for equities, as enormous fiscal and monetary stimulus through the pandemic supported the strongest economic and earnings growth in decades during the reopening. The S&P 500 Index experienced minimal volatility while returning 28.71% (largest intra-year pullback being just 5.2%), though there was plenty of action beneath the surface. In addition to the rollout of vaccines, markets were supported by several other positive developments, including strong corporate earnings and increased consumer demand. …

Planning for Every Outcome: Prepare For Tax Changes Before You Run Out Of Options

VanceWealth Business Owner, Financial Planning, Tax Issues

At Vance Wealth, one of our most important responsibilities is not simply preparing for life’s uncertainties, but help anticipating them before they occur. This year, that’s especially important when it comes to tax planning. The Biden Administration has proposed changes to our tax policies that, if enacted by Congress, would likely have a significant impact on tax bills, especially if you don’t adjust your financial plan ahead of these changes. “You can’t achieve thoughtful, effective tax planning unless you’re proactive,” explained John Vance, President …

Ever wonder how the busiest people get the most done? It’s called leverage. With our schedules seemingly getting busier every day, it’s more important than ever to step back and take a good look at how you’re spending your time.

I don’t have a clue how to build a website. …

We’ve officially surpassed the 1-Year Anniversary of this pandemic. I do not think any of us realized it would go on for this long, considering what we were told in the beginning. When we look back over the past year, I feel like in general it flew by because we did not really do much and everything seemed to blend together. But, while we were in it, the time seemed to crawl by day to day and week to week. …
