Helping Your Kids Design their Future


Parent Feedback

What is the Time Value of Talent?

We understand the “time value of money”, but what about the time value of talent?

If a person reaches a level of career mastery at 25 instead of 35, what else would that improve?

We believe it will deliver a compounding increase in freedom, lifetime income, lifestyle options, and personal fulfillment.

This is what we’re after.
