Editorial Reviews

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

Format: Hardcover
Finally a book that puts together all of the pieces of the world of what it means to invest and why we do it. Mr. Ottinger very carefully pieces together what is important about investing and building a legacy. He uses real life examples of people who have become successful not only with their wealth building but also in building a legacy in the philanthropy as well as family legacy. No matter how much wealth anyone has, the lessons that are inside of this book are relevant to all of us. It could almost be called, "The Habits of highly successful legacy builders"

It's a great book specially if you are looking for some reference in how to take care of your assets, cash flow, etc. when you have to think about legacy, it is funny for me because I was talking to my brothers in order to start building something together having in mind to build a legacy for our family and I found this book just exactly what I needed, includes some examples about families that have done it before and how to have a structure to make it happen, I highly recommend it. Great job by Mr. Randall J. Ottinger Congratulations!

A most insightful book…beyond the specific strategies for building a long-term legacy, the book provides enormous value in developing the mindset to think in multi-generational terms, in authentic terms that humanize the process. An easy read…but also worth re-reading often.

This is the best,most complete and most interesting book ever written on this subject.It is'nt just for those who have acquired wealth,it is also for their children. Can't hardly wait for Mr.Ottingers next book on business or whatever he feels compelled to pass on to his new group of admirers.
