Finding solace and a new beginning in Wisconsin
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Glenda Noel-Ney was just stepping off a train in downtown New York City when a plane hijacked by terrorists hit the World Trade Center about a block away. The traumatic events of that day made Noel-Ney rethink her priorities and left her searching for somewhere she and her young son could begin to heal. Friends invited her to stay with them in Madison, and here she found a warm, vibrant community – and a place she now calls home.

Finding it hard to resist the temptation to get an Pod? Buy a newwardrobe? Take that trip to the Bahamas? With many young professionals finding themselves with more disposable income than they have ever had before, your financial decisions now can play a larger role toward your future financial success. It is never too early to start saving and planning says Ken Karr, an investment adviser for McSherry Associates. “Invest early, invest often,” he advises.
