Legacy planning that focuses on aspects beyond financial capital, such as human capital, spiritual capital, social capital, and intellectual capital, allows the rising generations to focus on happiness and hard work in pursuit of their own goals. This prevents the legacy they have received from being felt as a burden; instead allowing it to be a blessing and a gift of love that offers the rising generation the opportunity to pursue their own unique voices and their own dreams. In the podcast Orlando and Hughes discuss how to avoid burdening future generations by not creating a strict sense of a “dynastic succession.”
By helping families in a holistic way, Hughes and Orlando offer a guide to creating a legacy that is fuller, richer, and more devoted to the happiness and well-being of successive generations. This focus on well-rounded planning creates a basis for the success of the rising generation, as well as their individuation and capacity to live a fulfilled life. True legacy planning is a long timeframe discussion. Listen to the podcast to learn more about legacy planning that addresses all of your family’s capitals, not just financial capital.
