Just because your kids do not want to be involved in the business, does not mean you are out of options for maintaining the legacy. The last thing you want to do is force your business down to the next generation who may not have the same passion for it, or maybe have different ideas for what they would like to do that are out of alignment with the business vision. The legacy of your business is not only in how you set your family up for financial success, it is also allowing your business to continue to thrive.
