U.S. Money Reserve CEO Angela Roberts Shares Lessons from the 2020 Pandemic

Angela Roberts prides herself on being the type of CEO people want to work for. She has led the charge at U.S. Money Reserve for over 15 years and is one of the few women leaders in finance. Her experience, compassion, and confidence are just a few of the qualities that have enabled her to succeed. Roberts truly values the individuals with whom she works every day, and her leadership during the difficult transition to working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic proves that U.S. Money Reserve cares about the physical and mental health and safety of the entire community.

Recently, Roberts shared some inspiring and timely advice on ways that we can all move forward to get through these difficult times. She believes it is important that we come together to have faith in a community that supports one another, ensures preparedness, and stays connected.

The Comfort in Faith and Community Support

Despite the hard hit that our economy has taken in just a few short months and experts’ predictions that a second wave of COVID-19 could strike this fall, Roberts chooses to focus on ways to stay positive. One thing Roberts has seen is that, even though we must remain physically distant, Americans have come together to provide support and love to one another. She says, “Through this crisis, we have come together and consciously moved past our differences for the [betterment] of all Americans. That is something this virus will never take from us.”

Her advice to all Americans is to have faith in one another and choose to believe that we can all do good in this world—and that those who lead the charge have a deep love for our country and are simply doing the best they can during an unprecedented situation. It is time to put politics aside and listen to our leaders. Leaders, she notes, are the ones who represent us with courage despite not necessarily having all the right answers at the right time. While we may want to place blame, it is more important to focus on the things each of us can do to help combat the virus and begin to rebuild our communities.

Learning to Be Prepared

Rebuilding our economy and communities after the 2020 pandemic will be like nothing we have seen before. Businesses have shut down for months, and the unfortunate fact is that many will not reopen. The livelihood of many small businesses has been diminished, and our local communities have suffered.

Roberts says that while parts of the country are beginning to return to a new normal, now is the time to prepare for the future. She advises, “If there is anything that can be learned from our present situation, it is that we should be prepared for unexpected situations.” We must all take the time now to reflect on what we have gone through over the last several months and take precautions to ensure that we are as prepared as we can be in the event of another crisis.

One of the ways that we can prepare is by ensuring that our finances are in the best possible shape to avoid loss. U.S. Money Reserve recommends diversifying your financial portfolio for increased stability. Purchasing precious metals like gold or silver bullion coins from U.S. Money Reserve can be a great way to diversify.

Family Connections Are a Blessing

In a recent blog post, Roberts describes the hidden blessings during these unsettling times. Thanks to the amazing technological advances that our country and the world have seen over the past decade, we are now able to connect with friends and family members in ways that we never have before. Videoconferencing has made its way into many homes, connecting us to the ones we love in an instant. The ability to see the smiles of our closest friends, children, and grandchildren without being physically present has provided immense stress relief when we have needed it most.

In addition, “Over the years, when I have talked to other parents about their children, a topic that has come up several times is what they want to leave behind for their children when they depart this life,” says Roberts. “Many want to leave behind for their children lasting memories, a solid financial footing, and something their children can hold onto.”

For Roberts, as CEO of U.S. Money Reserve, precious metals are more than physical assets; they are family treasures, heirlooms that have been passed down through generations, and something that keeps families connected.
