May Market Insights: The FTX Fiasco Has Nothing To Do With Blockchain Adoption.

With the collapse of FTX and the fraud surrounding the crypto space, many have jumped to the incorrect
conclusion that the era of blockchain is over, done, akin to the long list of bubbles throughout history.
Unfortunately, fraud happens all the time. As former Federal Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan states:
“Corruption, embezzlement, fraud, these are all characteristics which exist everywhere.” Thus, the
FTX scandal will not stop blockchain—an open-source, transparent, distributed-ledger innovation—
from transforming business practices.


How Should I Compensate Myself: Salary Or Dividends?

Everyone’s situation is unique.
Tax is important, but incorporated business owners and professionals should also consider retirement planning, lifestyle and corporate cash flow needs when deciding to take compensation as salary, dividends, or a combination of the two.


Life After Work: Thriving in Retirement

It takes resilience to manage the transition to retirement and design your next phase of life. Many retirees report feelings of sadness, loneliness or boredom as they struggle to fill the void left by their career identity and/or professional network, despite their best intentions to remain active, engaged and productive.
