Saving Scott's Ridge
Rob Walling April 22, 2022 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, Community Involvement

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..

5 Ways to Move Forward When You Feel Like Giving Up
Steve Jagodzinski February 17, 2022 Posted in: Blog, General

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?
