Going Out on Top

Share this content
By Rob Nance, Publisher - There's a lot to be said for going out while you're at the top of your game. Yesterday's news of Justine Henin retiring while she's still ranked No. 1 in the World Tennis Association rankings is admirable. I can only imagine struggling with such a decision to walk away from that level of fame and money--and the daily requirements that go along with it.

I remember years ago talking with a great old guy at the end of his CPA career. He told me, "I need to retire while I'm still near 100% of my abilities." He went out as a true class act, which his partners appreciated--and so did his clients.
I'll never forget him and the example he set.
