How To Build Generational Wealth According To Experts – Refinery29

I think it had to be on a podcast during my own financial journey. On Jean Chatzky’s podcast, HerMoney, a lot of her listeners always called in asking how to make best use of their windfall, the “beautiful gift,” as they’d call it. They’d say, “I got married, and my parents gifted us $50,000” or “my dear grandma just passed away, and I inherited $80,000.” These things were so foreign to me — like what? People are getting that kind of money? I think listening to the podcast and hearing from people from all walks of life talking about their money, that was a big eye-opener for me. It made me aware that we don’t have that. Our journey is different.
