You know, it’s that time again when families get together for the Holidays. It reminds me of a good friend who has a large extended family. Once a year, the whole clan vacations together. Believe it or not, each morning they spend an hour in which they talk with each other about money. The rest of the day is free for fun and frolicking—what people typically do on vacation. But, what’s happening with my friend’s family is that they’ve become better connected and more clearly understand where he and his spouse stand on money, and what’s going to happen with the money when they pass on. It’s neat to watch the change that’s taken place in the family over the past ten years.
