    EWS - Create the Future You Yearn for with Rochelle Seltzer

    In today's conversation we chatted with Rochelle Seltzer, Creative Core Coach and Author of LIVE BIG: A MANIFESTO FOR A CREATIVE LIFE. Rochelle talked to us about what it means to Live Big. Through her discussion, she demystified “creativity” and taught about how to be a true creator in your life, so you can live all of your greatness.
    She shared the fundamentals that will help you to get unstuck, stop letting fear be a driver and stop living small. 
    She will also shared a powerful tool, that her clients swear by, any time you feel stuck or need to generate new ideas.
    Rochelle Seltzer began her career in design and marketing and after over thirty years in the industry, she decided to embark on a new chapter in her life studying creativity. She wanted to understand how to unlock her own creativity,  as well as help others to un-block theirs.  In her coaching, she helps women tackle mindset limits of all kinds, and pinpoint the big desire in their hearts — as they relate to their careers, their businesses, their personal lives, their missions, or any combination.

    EWS - Sustainable Investing with Jennifer Sullo

    EWS - Sustainable Investing with Jennifer Sullo

    We hosted a conversation with Jennifer Sullo on Sustainable Investing. Investors are more aware than ever before of how large corporations are impacting the world we live in. It is difficult to ignore headlines and social media about how climate change or poor corporate governance are negatively affecting communities.  Sustainable investing is the practice of investing to achieve market-rate financial returns while pursuing positive environmental, social and/or governance (ESG) factors and their impact.  Over the past few years, sustainable investing has evolved from a niche investment idea to attracting enough capital to start having an impact on global challenges at a meaningful scale.
    Jennifer Sullo is a Principal at Rocaton Investment Advisors where she works directly with institutional investors on a wide range of issues, including asset allocation, investment structure design and investment manager selection. She’s predominately focused on corporate retirement plans (DB / DC), insurance portfolios, and the wealth channel.  Jen joined Rocaton from J.P. Morgan where she was a Vice President and led a cross-functional team responsible for institutional outsourcing solutions.  Prior to her role at J.P. Morgan, Jen held various positions at Voya Investment Management and GE Asset Management, working within US and EMEA institutional distribution and global fixed income trading channels.  Jen graduated from Fairfield University with honors and an M.S. in Finance; she graduated from Trinity College with honors and a B.S. in Economics.

    EWS - Estate Planning Across the Spectrum - Pam Pardoe

    EWS - Estate Planning Across the Spectrum - Pam Pardoe

    On April 14th for we hosted, Estate Planning Across the Spectrum- How Young Adults and Senior Citizens Benefit from Estate Planning, with by Pam Pardoe.  Estate planning has little to do with age or assets; it is not only for families with children or the wealthy. Once an individual reaches the age of majority, 18 in most states, including Massachusetts, their parents will no longer be able to access medical information or make healthcare decisions for their child and will no longer be able to act on the child’s behalf in financial transactions.  At the opposite end of the spectrum, elderly folks may benefit or require help with healthcare needs and financial decisions; if the proper documents are not in place, the result could have a dramatic and costly result. 
    There are a few simple estate planning documents that a young adult or senior citizen can complete which can direct health care providers and medical professionals as well as banks and financial institutions to communicate with those people identified in the documents.  Proper estate planning can provide peace of mind to parents who will be able to stay involved in their children’s healthcare and financial decisions.  Similarly having the estate planning documents in place can provide peace of mind to those caring for their parents so they can help make healthcare and financial decisions if the need arises. 
    Pamela Pardoe is the founder of Pardoe Law, P. C. a family law and estate planning law firm based here in Lexington, MA.  She works with individuals and families on creating estate plans tailored to each client.  Pamela has experience with all aspects of guardianship and conservatorship proceedings for minors and adults.
