Longest ❤️ At Centric: 53 Years❤️

Robert Heubeck has been married for over 50 years and works at our extension office, Encore Financial.

We would like to share his valuable advice with our financial community:

Communication is key.

Talk openly and honestly with your spouse about everything - your feelings, needs, hopes, and fears. Listen without judgment. Make time every day to connect.     

Don't sweat the small stuff.

Let the little annoyances go and focus on the big picture. Choose your battles wisely. If something isn't a major issue, let it slide. 

Thank you Robert for your shared wisdom with our financial community!
