The idea of leaving something behind for the next generation extends beyond just providing for their needs. When we aspire to leave a lasting legacy, we work hard to make sure everything is set. What if everything you have built is gone after a couple of generations?


On this episode of the Passive Income Attorney Podcast, Seth welcomes JR Gondeck from the Lerner group for a thorough discussion of building generational wealth, and the strategy that includes family members in financial planning.
