What’s next for you?
As a former CEO or business owner, you’ve logged a lifetime of experiences and successes. Perhaps you’ve sold your company, retired or left your previous position. Now, you’ve spent time off in retirement and you’re contemplating what’s next.
This may be an unfamiliar place for you. You’re no longer climbing the same ladder of success. You’ve already proved yourself and achieved a measure of financial security. You’ve run and grown companies. You’ve worked long hours, perhaps with significant sacrifices in your personal and family life. You’ve walked the path of leadership. You’re now ready to own your own practice with the flexible schedule and good income you’ve always wanted.
