How Much Does It Cost to Raise a Child
Congratulations! You’re the proud parents of a beautiful baby and you made it through all the expenses that come with pregnancy and childbirth. Now how much do you need to spend to get this baby bird to fly?
You might want to sit down for this. For a middle-income married couple, the average cost to raise a child born in 2015 is $235,610, according to a Department of Agriculture report released in January 2017. This number varies depending on the region you live in, with parents in the Northeast shelling out an average of $253,770. And no, that doesn’t include college.

Mike Gordon would like to thank everyone that attended the 2018 New Tax Law Seminar on January 24 at the Egyptian Theatre. The new tax law is large, complex, convoluted and full of bumps and twists! Mike was glad to share what he has learned about the new tax law with his community. We hope this seminar helps you plan for the 2018 tax year.
Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.

Landscaping Tips Home
Landscaping is a critical feature when listing your home on the market. First impressions are the lasting impressions. When buyers come to your home their first impression will be made at the front door. It is overlooked many times; however, it is estimated that it can add to the value of the home by up to 10%.

Recruitment of new employees consumes both, time and finances, and it may get worse if you make the wrong choice while hiring. Moreover, let’s accept the fact that companies always require new employees, whether it is to fill the vacancies left by the old employees or if the company wants to grow and expand.

Spa CULTURE is celebrating 4 years at their current location. To celebrate they held a fundraiser for Jon Grove who is battling MS and has been approved for a stem cell transplantation but now needs to raise the funds for the treatment. Many of the ladies at Spa CULTURE donated their day of services to this fund along with having a great basket of services and products for raffle. In total $2681 was raised in one day fundraising for Jon. Thank you to all the ladies at Spa CULTURE and all those that came or bought raffles tickets. This community is amazing.

We enjoy using social media to connect with our patients and with our community. In January our theme was “Next Picasso.” We asked members of our facebook community to explore their creative side, and to post a picture of their own personal masterpiece on either our Facebook page or our website. January’s winner was Tammy, who summited a picture of her daughter Brooklyn’s self-portrait. She’s pretty obviously a master-in-the-making! It took the real Picasso ‘til he was 65 years old, to get this good! It’s true!
