In the second installment of Tips for the Trail, Pipes and String explore the complex nature of inheritances and how they impact everyone involved.
It’s an unfortunate fact that inheritors aren’t often ready for the challenges presented with an inheritance. This lack of preparation can not only be hazardous to the wealth itself, but also the inheritors health. In this episode, Pipes and String dive into how affluent families are preparing their families for inheritances, and how we can all take a page out of their playbook.
So sit back, relax, and allow Pipes and String to provide another batch of tips for the trail!
