I got some invaluable insight from my cohort about 10 years ago when my business partner decided to retire. Our company was going through some major changes and a big conglomerate wanted to buy us. I was both thrilled and flattered, but I wasn’t sure if it was the right move. My husband, accountant, and lawyer were immensely helpful, but the advice I needed extended beyond facts and figures. I needed to talk it through with people I trusted, brainstorm different scenarios for how it might play out, and think about how my happiness could be impacted.
