Your assets…

are different now then they will be in the future. If falling on the younger end of the spectrum, your assets probably include:

  • Energy
  • Nothing to lose
  • Mobility
  • Lack of experience

“Lack of experience as an asset?!”


Start brainstorming with those who have been around a while, and have experienced a lot. One thing that’s noticeable in everything but the most open-minded groups, is that nearly as many ideas as can be generated get reasons attached to them why they are impractical. It’s the curse of experience.

As your career progresses, the assets transition to:

  • Connections
  • Financial Assets
  • Experience
  • Family

The difficulty is overcoming the feeling that our assets are at risk. They are, but likely not in the ways we think.
