In "Listening to women of wealth - what their stories reveal about women, families and creating a legacy", Amy Hart Clyne, of the Pitcairn Family Office, shares findings from a number of personal interviews with wealthy women in Canada and the United States. She and Dennis Jaffe began with a few interviews which soon grew to book length - available as Finding Her Voice and Creating a Legacy. Some of the interviews are also available by video, on request. The women were glad to be interviewed and to tell their stories. The article concludes that by hearing their stories, "we learn about families that have been able to grow and innovate, at a time when resiliency and adaptation is necessary for every family enterprise. We hope that every family enterprise can learn from these stories, and even measure themselves against some of the yardsticks that the families in our study have proposed".
