Although the book’s primary focus is on financial wealth, we believe it is important for you to determine your own definition of wealth.

 

After all, there is a big difference between being rich and being wealthy.

 

Being rich may mean that you live a lifestyle full of the latest cars, gadgets, travel and clothes; it doesn’t mean that you are accumulating assets.

 

Conversely, the wealthy generally have specific, defined goals for their money, and they are able to make wise financial decisions with these goals in mind. They are also willing to sacrifice a more luxurious lifestyle now for a comfortable and consistent lifestyle in the long run. How many people do you know whom you consider truly wealthy, versus those who merely “live large”?

Executive Summary

The Wealth Solution defines a distinct, comprehensive process for managing your wealth that is built on more than eight decades of academic and behavioral research as well as extensive practical experience. Along with insights into how truly wealthy families create, enhance and sustain their wealth, it also focuses on the common strategies that have provided a sound foundation for these families’ decisions over many decades.

The Wealth Solution can help you focus on what really matters in your financial life and adopt a sound, academically-driven process that considers more than just your investments. We hope the book will inspire and motivate you to become a better steward of your wealth and your financial future.
