    "The advice the Clearbridge site gives you is not really specific enough to be actionable, to a great extent - you need to provide personal information to get to these resources, but it seems like you are not really getting a personalized plan. Then, when you see these resources, you might note that it seems like you are doing most of the work yourself - you write down some of your thoughts and ideas, and the resources give you some ideas on how to organize them, but they don't provide enough guidance to take the next step."
