Executive Corner

Kim Brown, President

As we enter into the holiday season, I think it’s safe to say things look very different than holidays past. It’s been a challenging year.

Tough times, sadness, and disappointment come to all of us in life, but 2020 has thrown us a powerful curve ball. COVID-19 has taken from us. We are all impacted in one way or another, and it breaks our hearts to see and feel suffering, loneliness, and sadness.

Yet, in all its flurry and in a strange way, 2020 has also created a platform for growth and change.

It seems when we are thrown into the unknown we look for wisdom and strength amidst the uncertainty. And in that journey, gratitude prevails, and we believe that not only will we survive, but we might possibly thrive. That was certainly the case for our JNBA Team.

Together, and with your support, we were able to shift our business productively. Our team is working safely, mostly from home. Technology has made us more efficient in many ways and allowed us to stay connected and effective. And we’ve learned that we are resilient.

The importance of that resilience cannot be underestimated because it allowed us to continue to do what brings us meaning and purpose, and that is helping all of you navigate some of life’s most important decisions and being of service in any way we can.

Therefore, it is with unwavering and unimaginable gratitude that I would like to thank all of you, our amazing clients, our professional partners, and the JNBA Team.

My wish, especially this Thanksgiving, is that you will find joy and feel gratitude. And that you will know how very much you are appreciated and valued. We are always here for you and just a phone call away.

Happy Thanksgiving.
