May is always a busy month for my financial education workshops and this year was no exception. I just finished another week away in Grande Prairie where I met some terrific people who work for the city. It’s been a tiring couple of weeks on the road but coming home to my family makes it all worth while. There’s nothing better than walking through the door and being tackled by my four boys.
To all my readers and social media followers, I apologize for being little light on the tweets, posts and messages but things should get back to normal from here on in.
