Legacy families are complex, with various needs and stakeholders to satisfy, both now and over future generations. Advisors serving these families often see only part of the picture, and what they see is rarely clear, even to the family. How can we get everybody in the family on the same page, to then share that with their advisors? We have an open-source tool to share with PPI members, to improve and be used by all. Our Family Continuity BluePrint is a tool that advisors use with families, helping clarify where they are now, and where they want to go.
Research shows that a large percentage of people of all ages, incomes, and education lack the basic financial knowledge and skills to ensure long-term stability for themselves and their families. It is never too early to teach children about money.

It is also the home to Young Americans Bank and an incredible array of award-winning nonprofit programs, all designed to teach young people 21 and under about finances, economics, and business. You’ll learn about the impact they are having and how you and your clients can benefit from their programs.
Scott Gornto, MDIV, LMFT, CST, author of The Stories We Tell Ourselves™, joins us for a conversation on overcoming the stigmas and common challenges inheritors face. We discuss how advisors can help inheritors overcome negative fear-based narratives that hold them back from being successful, explore ways in which we can shift the story of success that they have in their head (based on the family narrative) to a narrative that they own, and by doing so create a new story of success and achievement that has a realistic plan for success.
