A Tale of 2 Family Legacies: The Rockefellers and The Vanderbilts

In this episode, Jake and Gino compare two of America’s wealthiest families, and the difference in how the Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts preserved their wealth. By not thinking long-term and not focusing on preservation, the Vanderbilts squandered their family fortune almost immediately. The Rockefellers, on the other hand, employed a strategy to keep their money together, inside of protected trusts with direction on how it could and could not be spent, which ultimately secured their financial future for more than 6 generations.

Do you ever feel like the ultra-wealthy play by a different set of rules than the rest of us?  What is their secret of getting rich, and staying rich?

This week, we dive into the strategies used by multi-millionaires and billionaires to create wealth and protect their legacies -not just for their children- but for their grandchildren and generations to come.

Gino dives into the top 3 factors that kill wealth, while Jake explains the framework of a trust. This bigger-picture mentality allows you to protect your financial legacy from taxes, lawsuits, and even reckless-spending heirs.
