In this episode, we’re talking about growing generational wealth: in other words, leaving money to your heirs.
According to the Census Bureau, baby boomers are nearly 9 times wealthier than their kids, the millennials. Which means as baby boomers, like me, die off, there’s going to be one of the biggest wealth transfers in history.
Want to create the kind of wealth you can pass down to the next generation—and maybe the generation after that? Then you’re in the right place. Because in this podcast we’re all about legacy-building.
Host Stacy Johnson is joined by financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Listening in and sometimes contributing is producer Aaron Freeman. This week’s guest is Kevin Matthews, a former investment adviser and the author of “Starting Point: How To Create Wealth That Lasts.”
Remember, our podcasts don’t offer financial advice. So make sure to do your own research and consult your own experts before acting on anything you learn here.
