with Martha Sullivan

Don't find yourself saying 'I wish I had known …'

(page 2 of 2)

We need to break the cones of silence in both arenas. Consider the parallel statistics:

  • More than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer’s today. This number is only going to increase. It is predicted that by 2050 that number will have grown to 16 million.
  • There are 4 million baby boomer business owners in the country who are contemplating retirement, over half of them in the next five years. That is a lot of businesses transitioning!

Think about the impact of these statistics, separately and together. If you haven’t been impacted by either of these events, just wait. You will be, either directly or through a friend or family member. It’s only a matter of time.

Share and learn from one another. Help get rid of the different stigmas of life’s transitions. Let’s eliminate “I wish I had known.”
