The Best Inheritance You Can Leave Your Kids

What inheritance are you leaving your children?

I know you would probably expect me to say “mortgage notes,” or “passive income properties.” Those are great investments. They might be some of the best types of assets to pass on in an estate. Yet, there are some things which are far more important!

Financial Independence

We all know school has become all but worthless. With the exception of those schools and colleges the big funds and local governments which have turned into cash flow centers and real estate investments. You can do 13 years at school and walk out not even knowing how to use a debit card.

Savvy parents are working harder than ever to teach their kids about money. About how to budget, save, invest, make sure they understand the benefits of financial stability. Some are even teaching them about self-directed IRAs.

Those things are all important. I do all of those things.

Yet, I believe there is something even MORE important. That is teaching them how to be independent.

After all, that’s our one main job as parents. It is to teach them how to survive and thrive on their own.

Instilling Independence in the Next Generation

I rented some units to some college kids. It was amazing to see how they were still clinging to their parents for support at 19 and 20 years old. I don’t know about you, but I was far more independent and had to do a lot more for myself since I was 15. Maybe even 11.

I learned the value of work and hustle at a very young age. I did my own laundry and learned how to cook at 11, and handle personal hygiene.

My kids are now 10 and 16. We used to play mental math games on the way to school. I’ve had them plan meals, go to the grocery store and hunt for deals, and now figure out how to do it all online. I teach them real estate and how to get out in the field.

I’m pretty sure they can stand on their own two feet if they had to.

I want to be sure they won’t have to depend on others for the rest of their lives. Even on me. Knowing how to invest is a big part of that, but mindset is even more important.

Take the Lead

As I reveal in my new book, you can, and should pump positivity into them as possible. Build their minds and spirit. Let them know they can do anything they want. BUT - you’ve got to live it too. Practice what you preach. You can rock their world and shake their mindset big time. Do it well, and consistently and they can also become some of your best accountability partners! They’ll keep you in check.

Lead by example. Do what you want them to do, and explain it. That means budgeting, investing, following your dreams, and stepping up to do difficult things. Teach them to embrace adversity and challenges in order to get stronger in all these areas, so they can get more of what they want and are capable of.

Teach them smart investing and money management and how to stand on their own, who they can get help from and learn from, and to problem solve. With these, they’ll be able turn the smallest monetary inheritance or property portfolio into even greater multigenerational wealth. Failing to do this, and ignoring these conversations while you have the chance, your heirs can blow your multi billion dollar inheritance, property empire and lifetime of discipline and sacrifice in a matter of months.

What inheritance are you leaving your kids? I’d love to know what do you do to build these things into them.
