Successful Generations Podcast
Welcome to the first episode of Successful Generations, a podcast for the next generation of family business, family philanthropy, and family wealth! Together, and with the help of some great guests, we’ll tackle the taboo topics our parents and grandparents always told us not to discuss: money, succession, inheritance, and more. The goal for this podcast is to have real, authentic conversations that help us work towards being the very best leaders we want to be in work and in life. Let’s do this!
Topics discussed in this episode:
- My upbringing on a farm in rural northern Michigan.
- How my life changed at an early age.
- A look at my experience trying to make sense of it all.
- My journey to start Successful Generations.
- My vision for this new venture and why I know it’s important right now.

Notable and Quotable:
I was told at an early age that we do not talk about wealth and family philanthropy. It made me have a very confusing relationship with money. #successfulgenerations
As I learned about our family philanthropy, I was sworn to secrecy. I didn’t have anyone that I could talk to about it. This is one of the reasons why I am starting Successful Generations. #successfulgenerations
We are in the middle of a $60 trillion wealth transfer. Our Boomer parents and grandparents have been killing it. There is now a major need for mentorship, leadership development and financial literacy training. #successfulgenerations
The next generation needs to know about their relationship with money, how to raise good kids in wealth, and how to talk with a spouse about money. #successfulgenerations
Don’t risk missing out on any of the fun that is to come.
