Author’s Inspiration for this Book

I’ve had the growing realization over the last several years that in my work as an estate planning attorney, I have not been as useful as I could be in helping my clients address the things that mattered most—their desire to instill the values that make life work in younger generation family members. I set out to create a framework that would help families bring clarity to the meaning of their legacy. My goal was not to just create a feel good moment. I wanted to provide a practical roadmap and tools that could help them make their legacy real and lasting. I hope this book and the extensive collection of resources found at the end of each chapter fill the need I know many families are seeking.
