A new Brookline business that is set to open its doors in October has a comforting message to adults faced with unpleasant grown up tasks: "Don't panic."
Over the next few weeks, The Society of Grownups will move into its new location at 1653 Beacon St., where its members will get schooled on how to handle their finances and other tidbits on tackling adulthood's many annoyances.
To help spread the word, company representatives volunteered to help neighbors moving into buildings near its office Monday.
"We understand that grown ups are facing different challenges, and moving is only one of them. We ourselves are moving into the neighborhood in October," said Society of Grownups Director Nondini Naqui, 34. "Our new neighbors were grateful to see us walking around offering a moving boxes, water and a helping hand."
The company is reluctant to release many details about what prospective clients can expect, but according to Naqui, the concept of the organization has piqued plenty of interest.
"We’ve been met with a lot of people who are curious about us," said Naqui. "It will be a place in the community where we can facilitate the conversation around money and do it in an engaging and different way that hasn’t been done before."
"I think finances are something that everyone struggles with, but a lot of people aren’t having conversations about it."
