Why not six months ago? 4. All this shows is that President Trump knows how to outsmart the IRS like any billionaire 5. President Trump donates his salary 6. He had a loss in 2016 because of the terrible Obama economy 7. Sleepy Joe has dementia!

Hey everyone. Recently interviewed at a registered investment advisor, 10 person shop. What’s everyone’s views on hand written thank you notes vs emails post first round interview? Both people I met with gave me their business cards without me asking which I think is a good sign. Usually like doing emails vs hand written notes because you can get a response or further conversation vs possibly not hearing anything from a hand written note.
