Tip of the month:

As this newsletter is going out today, I am heading across the border to the US for the first time in almost 2 years. I am making this trip with mixed emotions, and that has nothing to do with Covid.
I have not seen my son in 17 months and I will see him tomorrow, so for that I am happy. However, the real reason for the trip is a memorial event for my brother-in-law who just passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer, and I can't even put into words how that makes me feel.
So my tip of the month is simple, yet not necessarily easy for everyone. I wish I would have told him how much I loved him while he was still here, so I will make sure not to make that mistake with my son.

What's New:

On November 25th I had the honour of being the MC of an in-person event in Montreal, and I can't tell you how great it felt to be in a large group of people again, with something to celebrate on top of it.
The first ever FEYA - Family Enterprise of the Year Award - for Quebec was given out by Family Enterprise Canada, and the winners were Groupe AGF and the Gendron family.
In the photo with me are Helen Antoniou, Lianne Ulin, Susan St-Amand and Olivier de Richoufftz, who were all important to the success of the evening.

On January 27th, 2022, I will be attending the Institute for Family Governance's 5th Annual Conference in New York City.
I have not missed one yet and always get something out of it. I hope that some of you will join me there!

Blog of the Month:

My “Role / Goal / Control” Life Hack

A Shortcut for “In the Moment” Challenges

Most of what I write about each week focuses on issues on the far end of the spectrum of the “long-term vs short-term” continuum.

I’m referring to the loooooong term, in case that wasn’t clear.

I work in the intergenerational wealth transition space, which typically concentrates on years, decades, and lifetimes, not hours, minutes, and seconds.
