But is it really too late?

People from all walks of life––from multi (multi) millionaires to struggling single mothers, from middle-age disenchanted professionals facing being ‘let go’ to executives in general who are miserable in the corporate world––and worse––have been 'riffed' before they have enough money to retire are facing financial hardships they never dreamed they would be facing at this stage in life. They are in a quandary wondering what next, what can they can do now, and more importantly has time passed them by.

Kaufman, a former corporate executive, founder of Alignment, Inc.® and author of the Is This Seat Taken? book series says, "it is never too late" and dares anyone who doesn't believe in second chances to think again.

Now is the time to dig deep, take a chance, and strive hard to make it happen."

Kaufman prompts people to discover or rediscover their core strength, revisit values and talents, and revisit their ultimate goals in order exceed expectations and enable them to move forward with confidence.
