Passing The Torch – Preserving family wealth beyond the third generation.

I decided in 2015 to write this book and here is my big “why?” I wished to write a manual for my own children and next generations about taking the torch my husband and I will pass to them. I wished to share with them life skills, mindset, human behaviour and inspiration to take the torch and preserve and grow the wealth in all areas of life.
This book has become much bigger than just for my family and getting noticed by international publishers Wiley & Bloomberg made me realise I have a powerful message. It is now April 2018, it took 3 years of writing, researching, taking hands with powerful men, women and families and learning so much. I spend many hours pondering on the solutions, researching and asking questions. The book has been through 2 editors, 2 proofreaders and many negotiations with Wiley & Bloomberg. I am sure you can feel a glimpse of my joy and gratitude that my book has finally seen the light. April 2018 is a significant period in my life – I have achieved what I thought is impossible. Write about a solution for an age old universal problem and getting published by Wiley Bloomberg.
My wish is that you will buy my book, read it and find pleasure and joy in seeing the light clearly. I have dedicated my adult life to building my own powerful family and assisting thousands of parents and children in building theirs. As my book has come to life, my daughter Charne is pregnant with my first grandchild – the third generation. How very appropriate and inspiring.
