Family Wealth Stewardship

The Great Wealth Transfer and You

Trillions of Dollars are set to transition to the next generation of US Families over the upcoming decades. Having a Trust set up is only a small part of how to address both the challenges and opportunities afforded to multi-generational families of wealth. And a good trust document is actually the start of the process, although many treat it as the finish!

Wealth Opportunity vs. Wealth Consumption

To truly empower our next generation, and to really encourage inheritors to “own their legacy”, successful stewards of multi-generational wealth have to view that wealth as an opportunity to foster growth and development, and not simply to “spend”. The success of the Family should be measured in the fulfillment beneficiaries receive from making positive contributions their character – defining their legacy, not being restricted to solely following the legacy of their predecessors.

A Safety Net Supports Creative Risk-Taking

Wealth affords beneficiaries the opportunity (and some would say the responsibility) to seek ways to grow – not just grow the capital, but grow themselves and their character. The “safety net” of wealth provide the support for well managed and well planned personal development – creative risk taking – that grows the individual in a way that makes themselves and their Families proud.

Making it to the TOP of the Podium

Discovering, empowering and succeeding for beneficiaries who embrace the opportunities afforded them requires their “team” to help them identify their Talent, Opportunities and Passion. Combining all three with a sense of realism and accountability will be the true definition of perpetuating the Family’s Legacy, and insure “your time with the baton” concludes with you at the TOP of the podium!

Measuring Results, Staying on Course, and
Recovering from Falls

Its frequently said that “it’s the journey, not the destination” and that “those who fail to plan find that they’ve planned to fail”. Having a well managed and well thought out path to success, one that makes full use of “coaches” and “teammates” is the best way to insure your leg of the race is fulfilling and successful before, during and after the run!

Winning the Relay Race of Life

Every day is a new day to perpetuate the gifts of the “concrete safety net”. Every interaction affords each of us the opportunity to positively impact those we engage with and to help them each “define their own legacy” and “win their own race”. Looking for ways to constantly improve the world around is the very best way to live a life of fulfillment and value.
