Finding Your Voice and Flourishing amid Wealth
Many books are addressed to parents and grandparents who worry about the effects of unearned wealth on their descendants. In contrast, The Voice of the Rising Generation speaks directly to 20-, 30- and 40-somethings, encouraging them--literally, giving them courage--to meet the challenge of integrating wealth's power into their lives.
Readers of this book will:
Written by a psychologist, an educator, and an attorney who changed the landscape of family wealth, The Voice of the Rising Generation identifies briefly and precisely the cause of entitlement and dependency. It is not too much money or too few chores. It is the failure of rising generations to individuate, that is, to pursue their dreams, develop their resilience, and find their voice.
- Come to understand the true cause of entitlement and dependency
- Identify the psychological characteristics of the rising generation and the challenges proper to its development
- Clarify their own dreams, work, and vocation
- Navigate personal relationships and communication within the context of wealth
- Recognize the special challenges faced when rising is delayed until mid-life.
If you are a young person who is starting your life's journey and wondering about the effects of parental gifts, trusts, or a family business, this book will offer you questions, reflections, and guidance to help you find your own way. If you are a parent, grandparent, elder, or mentor, The Voice of the Rising Generation can serve as a window into the hearts and minds of the young people in your life--your family's true wealth.
