Casting Calls

There’s no denying that money can make things easier, but it can also complicate life in ways no one would imagine.

Were you born into wealth, but are using your energy and creativity to turn your family’s money into a major empire? Did you make millions as a young investor, an independent app designer or a tech prodigy and now retired, just barely an adult? Are you struggling to adjust to a new surge of wealth while keeping the friends you had before making it big?

Do you worry that you reached your peak at too young of an age and are now struggling to come up with “the next big thing”? Maybe you are about to take a risk on a new idea and are worried that the staggering success you once found is just setting you up to disappoint people on your next venture? Are you unsure of how to handle such a burden and who you can trust to help you along the way?
