The Intentional Legacy: What You Want For Your Family, Why You Want It, and How You Get There, by David McAlvany
Father, entrepreneur, and second generation business owner David McAlvany draws from more than fifty years of collective family experience in the wealth management industry to answer the questions – Why do family legacies fail? Why do they succeed? Will your children value their legacy?
In The Intentional Legacy, David explores a future that you cannot see or touch, but which is as real as the lives of your children. The subject is legacy – what it means, how to cultivate it, and how to protect it. It is also the story of his own experience, and his somewhat circuitous journey toward intentionality. David presents a strategy for “reverse engineering” your life and most importantly, presents a redemptive ethic for family prosperity based on love, forgiveness, and non-contingent relationships.
