I started reading September's EBA by picking the article on page 20, "What construction teaches us about wellness." This article compared building a wellness plan to building a house, and it got my mind running. What a great illustration - I kept thinking about that as I read the rest of the issue. This article made a great point that no two clients are alike, just as no two houses are alike, and our job is to learn the needs and build the best plan for our client.

As advisers, we can offer so many solutions to our clients, just as a homebuilder can offer many options for a home design. We both have to follow rules. We both take separate pieces and build something just right for our clients. We create a design that fits their needs. Why push a shower when the client needs a tub?
