“Well, I’ll tell you the thing that surprised me the most, there was a group called the American Society on Aging, which who knew, right? There’s a group for everyone. They have a conference every year. And when I went there, there was over 4,000 people that go to this conference just to deal with the aging issues. And I learned things there that actually, of all the places that I went to, really helped me the most. So yes, we thought, you know what? The baby boomers are gonna come in, they’re gonna want to talk about their parents and what to do with them and how to do it, but in reality, it was the baby boomers who came in. Because the fact is it’s really hard to force someone to plan for what’s gonna happen in the future, so you’d have to want to do it yourself. And what really turned out to be the big thing was it really was a value add to our financial planning practice.”
