What our clients are saying

– Seth Adelman

Having recently retired from medical practice, I was eager to plan my future and wanted to see if there was a way to integrate the various interests I’ve acquired over the years. I read the book ‘Range’ by David Epstein (about the value of being a generalist in a world of specialists) and came across these pearls: “…we are each made up of numerous possibilities.” “We discover the possibilities… by trying new activities….” “Rather than a grand plan, find experiments that can be undertaken quickly.”

Finding My Way
– Gretchen D.

What should the next chapter look like?  I’m 5 years from retiring, but I’m not ready to sit in a rocker.  I knew I had something more to give, but I couldn’t get traction on any ideas.  I’m interested in addressing some of the challenges in my community, but how do I translate volunteer work into something more?
