METRIC FINANCIAL: HONEST AND TRANSPARENT


Tim Baker started Metric Financial to show clients a better way of investing their money. After earning the Chartered Financial Analyst designation and working on the investment side of things for more than 25 years, he decided to go out on his own and offer a new way to build wealth (hint: ever hear of factor investing?). Well, there are different factors that help determine how stocks will perform. He starts every single presentation to new clients talking about FEES and PERFORMANCE. The goal: to offer full disclosure, be transparent (no hidden fees), and show clients how they can lower costs and improve results (sounds like a win-win). Whether you have questions about a 401(k), IRA, or traditional investment account, Tim is happy to help! His clients love that he is always available and always checking in with them. One thing we could tell, for sure, in talking with Tim is that he is passionate about what he does in every sense and cares deeply about the people he helps. Now that's a financial advisor worth talking to! To find out more about his unique approach, click HERE. Or email (tim@metricfin.com) or call 860.256.5895.

WE CARE COMPUTERS HELPING KIDS IN NEED


We Care Computers is collecting old computers so they can wipe them clean and give them to kids in underprivileged communities who don't have a computer at home to do school work (UH-MAZING!) This is just one of the MANY spectacular things owner, Avi Smith-Rapaport does for the world. He is a great human. Find out more info about how you or your company can help by emailing him: avi@wecarecomputers.com with subject line: WCC Students in Need Program.


UNIQUE OFFERINGS FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES


The Modern Milkman is offering online ordering and delivery to Glastonbury residents. They are bundling a selection of milk, eggs, yogurt, cheese, bread and cookies. We got one last week and it was awesome. Get the Swiss WECKA bread and make french toast or egg sandwiches! Everything was SO fresh. Order HERE.


Bogners in Manchester has meat bundles available on their website (they sold out as of Friday, but hopefully will be back up this week). The family-run business has offered the bundles for awhile, but now it's a great way to shop for meat without making a trip to the store. The process is so easy and there are different bundles at different price points. Choose one that's right for you HERE.


Have you noticed the red heart signs on lawns across town? Well, listen up because it's an easy way to give back. For just $15, you will get a sign delivered to your lawn and ALL profits are being donated to El Pollo Guapo. They will use the donations to prepare and deliver meals to essential and healthcare workers at local hospitals. Email: GlastonburyCare@gmail.com or Venmo: @Glastonbury-Cares.
