Publisher Notes For 3/15/23


Greetings from Digital Wealth News™

Friends, the 800-pound gorilla in the room is, of course, the banking sector blow up that occurred this past week.  And while it can be debated, who (or what) is ultimately at fault, in the meantime, the world of digital wealth moves forward, despite the ensuing market chaos. 

And to that end, while at breakfast earlier this week with my partner in life (and biz), the inimitable & brilliant Bill Taylor, we were discussing how we feel we hold ourselves back in expressing our true feelings in some of our columns here.  That said, we both agreed, Digital Wealth News is, by design and charter, a SAFE, NEUTRAL ZONE for our readers.  We’re here to report industry news and advance thought leadership and practice management in the digital wealth sector.  We are NOT here for is to espouse personal political viewpoints of ANY sort or make ANY of our readers feel uncomfortable (though we regularly take jabs at financial regulators, and feel that’s totally fair game). 

We value all viewpoints, whether we agree with them personally or not.  

So, to that end, READ UP! | Cindy Taylor, Publisher
