We’d all hoped 2022 would bring a fresh start, but instead we were met with more challenges. But rather than dwell on the negative events of the last two years, now is the perfect time to pause and take stock of all that we have to be grateful for. We at Heisten Financial are using this Thanksgiving season to cultivate a heart of gratitude and acknowledge all the things that are right in the world.
Family & Pets
Personally, my wife and I are grateful that our son, Hunter, is able to come home after playing hockey down South the last four months. We’re also thankful for the new additions to our family: our Boston Terrier, Lucy, and William’s healthy baby girl, Ella.
No matter how busy we are or what life changes come our way, family and friends are vital to our well-being. Our Heisten Financial team is incredibly grateful for the community that surrounds us, and we are privileged to consider many of our clients as friends as well.
A Chance to Serve
For us, one of the most important parts of our lives is joining you on your journey and serving you as you pursue your goals. It is truly our joy to celebrate with you when you reach a milestone and support you when life gets shaky.
There aren’t many people who can say they get to go to their dream job every day, so we are incredibly grateful that we get to do just that, providing education and support for so many families in our community who are on the road to a confident financial future.
As we reflect on all we’re grateful for this year, we want to make sure to thank you, our clients, for choosing Heisten Financial to guide you in your financial life. We look forward to investing in you and your family in the future!
We truly hope this Thanksgiving leaves you refreshed and ready to look forward with hope. Through it all, we are here for you and your family, just a phone call away. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907.222.6270 with your questions, concerns, or just to touch base before the end of the year. We are thankful for you!
