The first Creating Homes seminar was last Thursday at the Leary Traveler, and I’m quite pleased with how it went. It definitely wasn’t perfect (I need a different venue for next time!) but I didn’t expect to achieve perfection the first time. I think everybody who came got something out of it, and the feedback was enthusiastic and positive. I’m going to spend the next couple weeks taking notes and making plans, and then I’ll announce the dates for the next one.
Thanks to everybody who came out and spent their Thursday night helping me make something special.
You don’t have to look far to find news articles about how younger generations are approaching home ownership and household formation. This is definitely something I’ve seen in working with my clients. Gone are the days where every potential home owner is a member of a married couple with kids. I see friends, roommates, multiple families combining resources, just to name a few of the more common variations.
Breaking out of traditional molds to find a situation that works for you is awesome, but it can also be daunting. Most advice and infrastructure out there is built expecting a married couple with kids, and when you don’t fit that mold, it can be hard to figure out what to do.
That’s why I’m super excited to announce a pilot of a new seminar, “Creating Homes.” It’s meant to be a pragmatic informational session about the different options, challenges, and strategies out there for people who are doing something a little different. I’m especially pleased because Patrick McAuliffe is an accountant and most of the questions I can’t answer for my clients are of the, “You should talk to an accountant,” variety.
If you’d like to come, please to RSVP. I’ll look forward to seeing you there!
