Path to Abundant Living - Episode 5 (The Benefits of a Family Constitution)

One of the biggest concerns facing affluent families is how to manage their wealth so that it achieves many goals. Their focus could be continuing to grow their wealth as it is transferred to younger generations, or aligning the use of that wealth with the values and ideals the family holds dear, or even protecting that wealth from creditors and others who might seek to take it unjustly.

Often the best place to start, is to ensure that your family members are aligned when it comes to key issues. A family constitution can be a great way to get that process going.

In the latest installment of the show, Scott and Matt explore the benefits of establishing a family constitution to ultimately promote clarity and harmony when it comes to managing family wealth.
