Greetings from your Silver Fox Advisors – 2021 has certainly begun with a BANG! As I write this newsletter, we are experiencing the coldest winter air mass in decades. The records are not yet in the books. But suffice it to say, it is cold in Houston!! The process to get COVID vaccinations continues with more and more of our friends and neighbors finding providers to administer the shots. Plus, the business climate is changing too as owners make critical decisions about their plans for the new year.
In this edition there are several announcements and pointers to share with you for this month.
We have two important downloads for you. First, the Greater Houston Partnership issued its economic outlook in January. You will find this information helpful as you finalize any business plans for 2021.
Next we have an excerpt from the IRS outlining the tax credits for employers that have been extended under the CARES Act. Please take a look at this important information that could impact your business tax picture.
Both handouts are available for download by clicking the button below.
February Lunch & Learn
We are honored to have a special presentation for our monthly Lunch and Learn coming up February 25th at Noon. Mr. Chris Manske will be presenting. Chris is a wealth manager, running one of the largest funds in Houston. He has written a best-selling book titled “The Prepared Investor”.
On behalf of Donald Roberts, William Herman, Doug Thorpe, Joseph Tung and the rest of the leadership of the Houston Silver Fox Advisors, you are invited to attend a rousing mid-day webinar and hear Christopher Manske, CFP® speak about how professionals can use their natural inclinations to their advantage in a well-researched talk about the patterned response. Mingle with some of the most exclusive professionals in Houston and enjoy Mr. Manske’s talk titled, Just Following Orders.
This will be a virtual event. There is NO CHARGE for admission, but you must pre-register to save a seat.
On another note, we are sad to announce the passing of one of our founding members, Mr. Bill Spitz. Bill was a mentor’s mentor. He was a guiding light and a strong entrepreneurial force in Houston for many decades. You can read more about his life and legacy here. https://silverfox.org/remembering-the-mentors-mentor/
2021 represents the 35th anniversary of the Silver Fox Advisors. Since 1986, the organization has been serving Houston area businesses and owners. While we are proud of that history, we know, as modern business leaders ourselves, that we must press on with new and innovative ways to connect with our audience.
You have our pledge to grow with you.
