From the Back Cover
How can you build a lasting legacy?
The journey begins with Beyond Success.
“More than any other book on the intersection of wealth, family, charity, and personal fulfillment, Randy Ottinger's Beyond Success convincingly illuminates the challenges faced by all who struggle with how best to transform their material success into lives that will bring personal fulfillment to themselves, their families, and their heirs, as well as benefit to the wider world around them. It provides an entirely new framework for thinking about how, at the prime critical junctions over a wealth-generator's lifetime, he or she can confidently deal with those challenges in ways that bring lasting satisfaction.
“In lucid and highly readable prose, informed by the wisdom and experiences of hundreds of real-life individuals, the names of many of whom are widely known, Ottinger has succeeded in producing the best available how-to-do-it playbook for those with any substantial amount of wealth who are grappling with some of the toughest questions anyone ever faces-how and how much to allocate to themselves, their spouses, and their children, as well as how, how much, and how best to devote to efforts that benefit society at large. This book proves that difficult challenges do not require complicated, complex, difficult-to-read manuals, but can be resolved by fresh, clear-headed, evidence-based ideas communicated in the simplest language. I recommend it with great enthusiasm.”-Joel L. Fleishman, author of The Foundation: A Great American Secret-How Private Wealth Is Changing the World, and Professor of Law and Public Policy, Duke University
