A year and a half ago, I moved to Biltmore Lake, North Carolina. One of the most beautiful natural vistas in this area is the view of Scott Mountain. The north face of the mountain, up to a section of the mountain called Scott’s Ridge, is owned by the Cecil family. After a long period of ownership, the Cecils made the decision last year to sell the 138 acres that make up Scott’s Ridge. I would hate for it to become a condominium development – but, as it turns out, Pinnacle has a client that can help conserve this natural beauty..
I had an interesting conversation with a colleague the other
day about the difference between being a consultant and a trusted advisor.
There’s been a lot of ink spilled over the
difference. Increasingly, companies have marketed advisory services as a
replacement or supplement to consulting services. Although the distinction
between the two can seem unclear, there is separation.
Not too long ago, I received the news that I failed my most
recent actuarial exam. Those familiar with the actuarial examination process
know that this is an agonizing feeling (in fact, the Wall Street Journal
published an article
in December 2021 about the challenges of actuarial exams). To make matters
worse, it was the fourth time I scored just under a passing score of 6 during
my exam journey.
When faced with discouragement, it’s all too easy to admit
defeat. So how can we keep going when it feels like a win is out of reach?
