This article tells the personal story of the Rogerson family and how a great fortune was lost.  Now Tom Rogerson is one of the most prominent advisors to wealthy families in the U.S.  Many of the dangers and pitfalls of wealth are captured in this article.  Interestingly, another family mentioned in the article, the Hardie family, has a concept called "the business of the family" which is somewhat similar to the #empoweredwealth concept "The Business Family" but lacks the element of coaching.
