If you’re reading this feature, there are a few assumptions to be made; (1) you’re online enjoying the April issue—in its digital version, and we thank you for taking this step. (2) Our magazine was delivered to your mailbox and carefully extracted from the protective plastic wrapper. Or, (3) you picked up an issue at one of our many drop-off locations where our titles are found in large bundles. Finally, and the least desirable choice is that you picked up an issue at an office, coffee shop, or restaurant that allows guests take-out options.
Facing a Crisis
We’re not going to sugarcoat the truth, distort reality, and as many will attest to, we won’t publish fake news.
Integrity and a willingness to uphold legitimacy in reporting—at the most critical junctures of daily living, is our mission. We follow and analyze the 24-hour news cycles, so we may present a straight and unadulterated point of view to our readers who demand a full and accurate account of stories relevant to their lives.

Doom and gloom, it’s everywhere you look. Masks, gloves, and maybe soon, hazmat suits may become the fashion of the day.
Early adherence to the early warnings would have been a wise choice by packing the house with all the essentials and using what precious time you had available. And, once you had everything in place, you could contemplate your investments and enjoy the free education about economics and the market available on thousands of websites.
For first-timers, we’ll give you a break, the whipsaw action of the market isn’t kind to a newbie’s psyche and could feel more like a baptism by fire, but still, there are lessons to be learned for a lifetime.
First and foremost—DON’T SELL ANYTHING! Losers panic, while the smart money plans.
