Nearly every will I review looks like this: Your total net worth, divided by the number of children you have. This may not lead to challenges if you’re estate is only worth $1M and you have three or four children.
I believe generosity is a game changer. In our own life and in our family. As parents, we all want our children to have a better life than we have. Unfortunately, living in an affluent society has led to high levels of entitlement and people that are very focused on themselves. Generosity is the antidote!
Thanksgiving is one of my favourite times of the year. Family, friends, tons of food, sunny cool weather, beautiful fall produce and the grandeur of the fall colours. It’s hard not to be thankful. Over the years, I have heard it said from many different sources that an “attitude of gratitude” is a key factor for success. As Canadians, we have SO much to be grateful for. Consistently, independent surveys rank our country in the top few, and often the top country, to live in the world!
