About the Author:

Biography of E.G. Jay Link

Mr. Link is the founder of the Family Wealth Counseling movement that has swept America. He is considered one of the foremost experts on issues and strategies relating to wealthy families and is often quoted in the national press. He is an extremely popular and compelling public speaker within the legal, financial and nonprofit industries. He also frequently speaks at meetings attended by Americas most affluent.

Several years ago, in an attempt to expand his capacity to help even more affluent families, Mr. Link began personally training other professional advisors in his Family Wealth Counseling process through his Professional Mentoring Program. Over the years, he has successfully equipped hundreds of professionals from coast to coast to do Family Wealth Counseling. Through his mentoring efforts, he has helped literally thousands of wealthy families give billions of dollars away to worthy charitable causes that would have otherwise been needlessly relinquished to the IRS in taxes. With this process, he has enabled these families to find a clearer purpose, deeper meaning and greater fulfillment for their lives and their accumulated wealth.

Mr. Link is the founder and president of Kardia, Inc., the nations oldest Family Wealth Counseling firm founded in 1981. His firm works directly with wealthy clients as well as supports the hundreds of Family Wealth Counselors across the country in counseling, planning and implementation services for their affluent clients.

Mr. Link also founded the National Association of Family Wealth CounselorsTM (NAFWC), an independent, member-run, nonprofit association. He continues to serve the organization on its executive committee.

As the primary visionary, Mr. Link remains the unfading inspiration for all the Family Wealth Counselors across America. His dream and his passion for changing the world also continues to serve as a lightning rod that attracts professional advisors from all disciplines who want to use their skills to not only make a living, but alsoto make a life.

Review:

Edmund Burke stated, All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. My friend, Jay Link, has produced a tool in this book that challenges and motivates good men and women to do something very proactive and positive with their time, their talents and their treasures that can have a profound impact on them, their families and the causes they care about. His holistic approach to life-planning and leveraging all your resources for good will help you move beyond financial success to a life and legacy of significance. -- Dr. Ron Jenson Chairman Future Achievement International Chairman High/Ground Author of Make a Life: Not Just a Living.

Jay Links book is a much needed - and unique - contribution to a tapestry of work that is essential for healthy financial and emotional balance in todays increasingly affluent society. With eighty percent of todays millionaires being first generation, it is of paramount importance that we learn how to pass our wealth on to our children and our local and global communities in ways that will enhance all of our lives. Jays book will ensure that you and your family learn how to accomplish this important task. -- Jessie H. ONeill, MA, CET II Author of The Golden Ghetto: The Psychology of Affluence Founder & Director of The Affluenza Project The Affluenza Healing & Education Foundation, Inc.

This book by Jay Link is the first solid discussion of the issues, elements and discipline required to do thoughtful family wealth planning. After all the comparative ledgers and projections, fancy documents and sale hyperbole, the best plan is one that protects and builds families, reinforces core values and strengthens the community. -- Douglas K. Freeman, JD, LL.M., Freeman, Freeman & Smiley, LLP.

This is a very clear and helpful resource for families transferring wealth. It keeps the heart where it is supposed to be-at the center of this work. --Katherine Gibson, Co-Founder of The Inheritance Project.
