Cindy Puccio has been a student of and a colleague with many of the luminaries in the field of education, emotional growth and development and serves as Individual U’s mentor and special liaison to those communities.
Individual U: it is a learning community in which mentors work one on one with students to re-mediate and repair vulnerabilities and difficulties resulting in diagnosed and undiagnosed learning disabilities and struggles in schools unwilling or unable to address their learning needs and damage or loss from disease or unexpected emotional interruptions. Individual U’s mentors work closely with students to ease their burdens making room for the possibility of growth so that they can become happy and effective learners.
Peak Year.

Peak Year students learn the wisdom of the greatest guides and masters of the last 5,000 years while acquiring the capacity to make the most of the present and special skills and abilities to understand, excel and lead with happiness, joy and success in growing in a changing and uncertain future.
Thank you so much, Stephen and Matthew and Cindy for being part of our Family Office Association audio podcast today on such an amazing subject. I feel sorry for my audience that we are going to be limited to only 50 or 60 minutes. This is a topic that is worthy of a significant deep dive, but stay tuned for those of you who are members and active in our programs. We do have grand plans for this topic in the future, but for now condensing it and making it valuable for all of you in 50 or 60 minutes. I am sure it is going to be great. Why don’t we get right into it.
