Occasionally, I get to speak with someone in the industry that both affirms my experiences, but also pushes my thinking and worldview. DAVID C WELLS JR, CEO of Family Capital Strategy, fits that bill on the topic of advising families. I met him in Nashville early in 2020 and stayed in touch. When I heard he was writing a book, I knew we were kindred spirits having gone through that process myself. That book, “When Anything is Possible”, just came out and I couldn’t be happier for him. I think it is a terrific companion to those looking to forestall the “Shirtsleeves to Shirtsleeves” phenomenon and help business owners and their families structure and build lives of purpose. In this podcast, we discuss some of his insights and the book-writing process itself.
