Honoring All on Mother’s Day

Honoring All on Mother's Day

On behalf of everyone at Cornerstone Financial Solutions, happy Mother’s Day! It’s not uncommon to hear people describe their mom as “The Best Mom Ever” and proudly present her with a personalized coffee cup or trophy. But Mother’s Day can also be a difficult day for some people, and we want to try to honor all the ways this complicated day affects people.

If this is your first Mother’s Day without your mom – our hearts are with you as you find new traditions to continue celebrating her. Whether you plant flowers in her honor, enjoy brunch at her favorite restaurant, or spend an afternoon on her favorite lake, we know she is in your thoughts on this day.

If you have little ones and think some quiet time alone would be a great gift, we see you. We know you’re exhausted and have probably run out of ideas about what to cook for dinner. Your capacity for love inspires us, and our fingers are crossed that you get the nap you so greatly deserve.

If you’re celebrating via Zoom because your kids live too far away to give you a hug in person, we are ready and waiting to help! We’d love to hear about your children and deliver the hug they aren’t able to give you in person. Stop at the office and say hello.

For foster moms and adoptive moms who are making a difference in the most tangible way imaginable, we are in awe of your willingness to open your hearts and homes.

For the women who thought they’d be a mom by now, but that isn’t how life has played out, you are not forgotten. Give yourself the self-care you need today, in whatever form that may be.

 To the mommas whose babies are waiting for you in Heaven – you are in our thoughts and hearts more than ever on this day. We can’t even begin to imagine the pain you have endured.

 And for those of you for whom this day evokes painful memories, we wish you nurturing relationships to help heal and mend your heart.

 Wherever your heart is this Mother’s Day, we are grateful for you. We are here if you need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to speak to, and look forward to many years of celebrating life’s triumphs and heartaches with you as friends.

    Facebook - like or follow?



    Our team uses Facebook to share insights on financial planning, keep you updated on what’s happening in the Sioux Falls and Huron offices, announce upcoming events, remind you of office closings, and more. If you’ve already hit the “like” button on Cornerstone’s page, thank you! It’s a fantastic way to connect with the #CornerstoneCommunity.

    So what’s the difference between following a page and liking a page?

    When you like our page, Facebook simply notes your interest and may display our posts in your news feed. Facebook also utilizes this data to tailor the advertisements you see.

    When you follow our page, you tell Facebook you want to see our posts and page updates – not just that you’re interested in the topic.

    You can also see more of our posts by liking, sharing, or commenting on content.

    You can configure your Facebook account settings to organize posts based on posting time and day. But where a post shows up in your feed is also influenced by the level of engagement it garners. Posts with higher likes, comments and shares get priority, while those with less engagement may be pushed lower down the feed.

    We appreciate the Facebook platform as a way to connect and cultivate the #CornerstoneCommunity because helping you build a retirement plan as distinctive as your life story is about more than just financial insights. It’s about shared values, decisions that connect with your bigger life goals, and tailored planning that can benefit your family for generations.

      Thank you for being a Cornerstone Champion!

      Clients often tell me about outstanding service they received from a member of the Cornerstone Team or how their life was positively impacted by the services we provide. They want to tell their friends about the experience, but they’re not sure how to bring it up.

      Here are a few easy ways to share Your Cornerstone Story and become a Cornerstone Champion!

      Like and follow our company Facebook page, facebook.com/CornerstoneFinancialSolutionsInc. It’s a great way to stay up to date with the team and what’s happening in the Cornerstone offices.

      Connect with the Wealth Advisors and other team members on LinkedIn.

      Follow the company’s LinkedIn page, Cornerstone Financial Solutions, Inc. 

      Forward our Weekly Market Update email. 

      Share our social media posts and encourage friends to follow our pages. Tag someone who you think would be interested in the information or our services.

      Tell your friends if a Cornerstone team member goes above and beyond to handle a question or provides memorable service. It’s the same as talking about the good service you received at a restaurant or retail store.

      If you’d like me to reach out to someone who is ready to uncover what’s truly possible just let me know (link to https://mycfsgroup.com/referral/) I’ll simply contact them to see if they’d like information or to meet with an advisor. That’s it!

      At our Education Event in early September you heard about the passion Gordon and our whole team has for personal and professional development. It’s so important, we’ve identified it as one of our five core values. Be Hungry, Stay Humble is about continuous improvement, pushing through our comfort barriers, and always looking for a better way.  

      I’ve had amazing opportunities to learn and grow in the twenty-two years I’ve worked at Cornerstone, and I’m personally grateful Gordon has always encouraged and expected team members to reach for their highest potential. It’s an honor to help drive that effort now.  

      I’d like to share one “easy” tool we suggest every new team member get into the habit of using each day. (Because, as James Clear says in Atomic Habits, creating systems and building habits can help us rise above external circumstances. Success often means doing the little things over and over and over again when nobody is watching.)

      The DarrenDaily email is a brief but high-energy video by well-respected success mentor, Darren Hardy. One BIG idea, in under 5 minutes, delivered via email every weekday. It’s a great way to focus your energy toward ideas, solutions, and abundance for the day!

      Every morning receive one BIG idea to ignite your mind and help you become #BetterEveryDay
