There is a lot to be said in BlogLand about Finance, Family, Entrepreneurship and Wealth Building but little to be said about how they all truly work together. Well, it’s time to connect the dots.
In the Bible, it states in Proverbs 13:22 that “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children” (NIV). Who can argue with that. What good man (or woman) would not want to leave an inheritance that would be passed on to their grandchildren? But the questions we must ask ourselves is what inheritance. Are we talking about money? How about values or character?
What is an Inheritance?
Dictionary.com defines “inheritance” as “something that is or may be inherited; property passing at the owner\’s death to the heir or those entitled to succeed; legacy“. Also “something, as a quality, characteristic, or other immaterial possession, received from progenitors or predecessors as if by succession: an inheritance of family pride.”
Often times when I speak at a seminar or meet with my clients, I leave them with a question – a question my husband and I have been asking ourselves from the time our children were born. Now, it is a question I leave with you – what Legacy are you leaving? The simple fact is that whether you have been doing nothing, or you have been making a conscious effort to create one, you will be leaving a Legacy. It’s up to you to determine what kind.
