Digital Assets – Social Media, Photos, and Online Accounts – What happens when you’re gone?!?! By Reneé Leon Earlier this year I was chatting with a customer while she waited for her oil to be changed. She shared that she was amid a challenging task – a loved one had passed and our customer was trying to manage online accounts. She was struggling to gain access because the passwords weren’t readily available/known. She encouraged me to plan now to save my family from added challenges when I’m gone. I’m sharing this info with you, too, and perhaps we will all get organized this year! As technology continues to advance, it has become increasingly important to consider what happens to our digital assets after we pass away. End of life digital planning involves taking steps to ensure that our digital presence is properly managed, and our digital assets are passed on to our loved ones. Here are 5 steps for end-of-life digit ... read more

How to Maintain a Clean, Organized Car Interior During the School Year: 5 Simple Tips by: Renee' Leon August marks the start of school for a lot of Colorado schools and with it comes the need to haul more SCHTUFF. Books, folders, bags, and food need to be remembered and available. Students/parents/teachers need to be on time prepared. As the school year progresses, having a chaotic commute vehicle can be unpleasant and unhelpful. Here are 5 SIMPLE TIPS for maintaining a clean and organized car interior during the school year: 1) Stash the Trash Keep an easy-to-access trash bag (ideally reusable) in your vehicle and empty it regularly. If we eat in the car, everyone must pack out their trash and as much of the dropped morsels as possible. Don't do it later. Your nose will thank you. If you have little kids, you can consider a weekly car clean up contest! The person who picks up the most trash/treasures WINS! Plus vacuums are fun for some littles... 2) Junk in the Trunk (Okay ... read more

Facing A Health Crisis: 7 Advocating Tips (from An Attorney)! by: Renee' Leon When someone we love is facing an unfamiliar health crisis it means that those closest to them are called upon to provide support. Support can look like many things – rides to appointments, meals, holding a hand, and sometime financial assistance. Another important role is being an advocate. The person facing the scary health stuff is often unable to fully comprehend and remember what the medical team finds, suggests, and prescribes during an appointment. A dear friend of mine, an advocate by trade (she’s an attorney), recently found herself needing to use her skills in just this way. These are her 7 Advocate Tips to follow: 1) Educate yourself, and not just a Google search. Talk to people who have been through something similar. Learn as much as you can about the health condition and treatment options. This will help you make informed decisions and ask the right questions ... read more

Summer Gatherings: Perfect Time for Important Discussions! by: Renee' Leon I know, I know! June is Pride month, Father’s Day, and Vacation time! AAAAND that often means gathering with close friends and family. Which is PERFECT! Rarely is there an ideal time to discuss end of life care and wishes and sadly, many people delay the conversation until it is too late. Use June as a time to understand one another’s wishes.  Estate planning is a process that is best done in advance of extreme stress and in manageable bits. It’s also very helpful to enlist a professional! Consider the following outline for adult children talking to their parents: Pick a relaxed moment to open the discussion. Ask if they’ve thought about end of life or medical emergency wishes; be sincere about you desire to follow their wishes. Listen openly. Offer support and assistance; stress the importance of clear planning to avoid family conflicts. From determining beneficiaries to ... read more

April Newsletter 2023

April Newsletter 2023

​10-year anniversary: STRUGGLE LEADS TO GROWTH Ten years ago, I was informed by my incredible husband that he, Edgar, was determined to open his own shop. He asked me to join him stating that it would be best if we did it together. But if I declined, he was going to do it anyway. Not much of a choice, right? WE could do it or HE would do it – either way it was HAPPENING, so I stepped up. For the entire first year I experienced involuntary muscle spasms every night (my body trying to process the stress). After that first year, I was willing to admit to Edgar that HE WAS RIGHT, and while I know he loves to hear those precious three words, he has never stooped to saying, “I told you so”. Edgar knew a lot about fixing cars and helping customers but together we learned the business side of the automotive industry. Over the years we’ve learned a lot - some lessons harder than others – and can truly be grateful for them all because we now know ... read more

February – A Great Time for Some SELF-CARE! By Reneé Leon This February, show some love and appreciation to those around you but don’t forget about #1 – the person looking back at you in the mirror each day! There is a lot of valid emphasis being put on self-care, and for good reason. “In a national survey, Americans cited benefits of self-care as: enhanced self-confidence (64%), increased productivity (67%), happiness (71%). From a physical health perspective, self-care also reduces heart disease, stroke, and cancer. (By Mental Health First Aid USA on March 14, 2022) You’ve heard it said before, but it bears repeating – you can’t care for others if you don’t first take care of yourself. Self-care activities should help you to create balance and wellness in various ... read more

​Maybe DON'T with the New Year Resolutions...Here's why! by Reneé Leon If you read to the bottom of each monthly newsletter, you’ll always find a cheesy joke. This year, I came across this joke that made me pause (still read to the end for the ACTUAL cheesy joke of the month):   How can you be more efficient with New Year’s Resolutions?Make a copy of your list so you can pull it out again next year!   This made me pause because it is often accurate. A dear friend (that’s you, Sarah) pointed out that the better time to assert oneself and make change is in the Spring or Fall. She cited that January is typically COLD (at least in our state) with fewer hours of daylight; lack of sunlight affects human moods (ever heard of Seasonal Affected Disorder?) while snow makes everything harder. The most common Resolutions are about improving diet, exercise, and productivity – all things made h ... read more
