The last few days I have been reading your book – what a thought provoking read – well done! It has already inspired me to start more family conversations over dinner. I will definitely read it again (and probably again) as you can create quite a plan from it.
Congratulations and I hope the book serves many people.
I have known Ilze Alberts for 8 years in her professional capacity as a psychologist and Demartini Method® Facilitator and have experienced her as inspiring, dedicated to serving people and willing to go more than the extra mile. She is certainly a leader of leaders and dedicates her time, energy and effort to her vision of inspiring and empowering people of all ages, globally. She is an empowered woman and a role model to many. She will leave her leadership legacy for generations to come as she takes her message and services to the world.

As part of a deliberate plan to advance my career, I consulted with Family Wealth coach, Ilze Alberts. Within two weeks, I received an amazing promotion, increased my salary dramatically, and most importantly, have a vision and a purpose for my career. The investment I made in my wealth combined with Ilze’s expertise made a dramatic impact in my life and my family’s life.

You have caused myself and my Trustee, to reflect on important aspects of family governance which we have not done to date. You acted as the catalyst for doing so. As a result I have updated my Will and Letters of Wishes to reflect and provide longer term guidance for when I am gone. Through my interaction with you I have been able to define and begin to articulate the soft issues pertaining to preservation of family wealth – that the money is really just the means to an end but there are deeper family issues that must be addressed. Your role in awakening the awareness has been an important milestone in creating and then preserving a family heritage for me.

My association with Ilze is best explained through a beautiful story that I once heard: “Once a wealthy ship magnate had a ship’s engine that could not be repaired by his engineers. He spent a fortune trying to fix it without success. At last a colleague referred him to an old, rered engineer. The old man was called in and arrived with a small black tool box. He opened the tool box and took out a stethoscope. He took a few minutes listening to and examining the engine. He then took out a hammer and hit strongly on a particular engine part. As the third blow of the hammer landed, the engine sputtered back to life. The owner was thrilled. The next day the rered engineer sent his invoice for a million dollars. The boss nearly had a stroke. He wrote to the old man demanding to know how he justified such a bill for such a short amount of work. The old man responded with a revised bill : “$100 for inspecting the engine ; $999,900 for knowing where to hammer” The boss paid.”
Ilze can be liked to the retired engineer. She knows what to listen for and where to hammer to get the fastest and most profound results! Needless to say… I pay with a smile as well
