“Susan On Money”

Hi Everyone,

This is likely to be the final “Susan On Money” update for 2011 as Sophia and I dedicate ourselves to some rest, fine dining, and time with some really special people. I thought I would take this opportunity to simply speak from the gut and tell you a bit about how I feel about a handful of things this holiday season.


The Markets – 2011 is looking to be one of the more frustrating years I have been through as a financial advisor. The good news is that it hasn’t really been a bad year. The bad news is that it hasn’t really been a good year. Everyone that knows me knows that the “gray”, the status quo, and the lack of forward progress frustrate me. Great things can follow.

The World – Global economies have more issues to resolve but progress is being made. I encourage all to be cautious of viewpoints that are too negative or too positive. This is the time for patience, flexibility, and understanding. It is also the time for charitable giving. The Linkous Group, Ltd. and Susan & Sophia Linkous are proud to have financially supported the following organizations in 2011:

Basis School of Scottsdale
American Heart Association
World Wildlife Fund
Arizona Human Society
Goodwill of Arizona
Maricopa County Foodbanks

Friends & Family – This has been, hands down, the most phenomenal year for new friends. Many came in the form of new clients that are just simply fantastic people. A few came in the form of close personal friendships that have become family. I wouldn’t trade this year for any other.

My Soul – I absolutely love what I do. As hard as the past fews years have been on my industry, it feels great to be a trusted advisor. It is truly an honor to be able to help, to have productive work to do, to share in each client’s dreams, goals and needs. Thank you for all of this.

Until next year,

Susan R. Linkous
