Our mission is to bring peace of mind to individuals and families by helping define and achieve goals, by providing state-of-the-art education, counseling and documentation . . . and by doing so with empathy, compassion and humor.
Here is what we believe our clients need to achieve peace of mind: * A clear understanding of personal, family, medical and financial circumstances (family and financial "x-ray") * A clear understanding of hopes, fears, dreams, aspirations, values and pecadillos (we are fallible humans, after all) * A clear definition of goals ("If you don't know where you're going, any old road will get you there.") * A capable team (much of your planning is for a time when you won't be able to think clearly or act effectively) * A desire to do this work properly (there are no shortcuts to excellence ... the standard we strive to meet)
The "Little Book of Great Wisdom"
Listening to Our Clients
Most of our clients are thoughtful, insightful, disciplined, creative, funny, smart ... or at least some of those things. The Frog Butler in our waiting room holds The Little Book of Great Wisdom, a 23 year collection of wise sayings, observations, stories and lessons from our clients, from whom we continue to learn every day.
Our work is very serious, but we also believe that if we laugh while we are young, the wrinkles will be in all the right places when we are old. Even in the face of critical health, financial concerns or the challenges of aging, humor helps elevate our spirits and eases the burden of combating all the obstacles life throws at us.
Our founder C L Huddleston is 66 years old. He has buried his parents, watched a grandmother live to 103 and a great-grandmother to 99, a great aunt to 108, survived two teenage daughters, both daughters' marriages, the birth of grandsons, all while managing to convince his wife of 40 years to continue putting up with him. That is a great deal of experience, but not as much as the more than 2,000 client families we have served in 20+ years.
Each individual client and client family benefits from what we have learned cumulatively from all the clients we have served.
Books Authored by Our Clients
Books Authored by our Clients
We said our clients were smart, and a few of them have so much to say they can't do it in our Little Book of Great Wisdom. So they write their own.
Among our client books are a New York Times best-selling biography of two brothers and their business empire that transformed the nation, a history of the 486th Bomber Group in World War II, an exciting novel that may be on its way to becoming a movie, the definitive history of Ohio State football, the story of Florida's mysterious Coral Castle, several publications on women in aviation, books on faith and faith experiences by Christian clergy and Jewish holocaust survivors. We are honored when our clients choose to present us with their writings.
