Ease into 2023… 

Even though we’ve mentioned the unavoidable tax deadlines above, we want to remind you that self-care is still a priority. Renee Trudeau, life-balance and self-care expert, offers us these three questions. It’s still a good time to reflect on last year and determine what matters most for this one.

If life has been feeling a little overwhelming, consider a Horselink HorsePower Workshop on building emotional resilience. Horselink is a local non-profit that envisions a world that appreciates and benefits from the horse~human relationship. They are offering workshops in March and April designed to be fun and empowering. No riding is involved and no horse experience is necessary.

Our team is here to help you stay on track.

Please reach out to your DMR team member if you have any questions about any of the above mentioned tax deadlines. It’s our mission to provide clear direction and steady support as we help you close your books for the last fiscal year.
