Ensure Your Family’s Future Is Full of Possibilities
Let’s face it—no one wants to think about wills and estate plans. But like it or not, creating the right estate plan may be the single biggest kindness you can offer your heirs. In Endless Inheritance, Richard M. Del Monte, CFP®, CWC, shows you how leaving your children and grandchildren with substantial wealth can be a recipe for disaster if you don’t help develop a shared commitment to the future of the family, and provide them with opportunities for learning to resolve the conflicts that are driving them apart.
IF YOU ARE:
• A parent concerned about the impact inherited wealth will have on your children
• Part of a self-made family whose success has become a barrier to having loving and satisfying relationships with each other
• A parent who worries your children might be exhibiting signs of entitlement
• A young person or adult child struggling in the shadows of successful parents
Endless Inheritance is designed to help you move from a place of resignation and status quo to a place of positivity, creativity, and possibility by helping you bridge the gap between the future you want for your family and the one that’s likely to materialize if your lives continue on their current path.
