The Legacy Spectrum Front Cover
The Legacy Spectrum Back Cover

Individuals can take a broad range of actions to leave behind legacies, but too many believe “traditional” estate plans are the only option. Author Mark Weber argues, from long experience working with wealthy families, that there is a spectrum of actions, and legacies involve more than financial assets. In The Legacy Spectrum, Weber describes a process that begins with attaining and maintaining confidence in having “enough” for one’s own financial security before determining how much is enough, but not too much, for children. The process he has created involves incorporating philanthropy in one’s legacy and using charitable giving to pass values to children.


Weber shows readers how to use family meetings to provide a financial education for children, strengthen family ties and prepare children to receive an inheritance. The Legacy Spectrum includes case studies based on Weber’s experiences helping families to create legacies and worksheets and forms to help readers pass their wealth with thought and meaning.

For a limited time, The Legacy Spectrum is available in several formats from numerous booksellers. Please click on the vendor and format you prefer.

I have worked with Mark Weber for three decades in the design of life insurance products and the underwriting of life insurance policies for our mutual clients. The Legacy Spectrum embodies the characteristics which Mark has consistently exhibited: he is client centered, financially astute, has high ethical values, and a passion to make the community and industry in which he lives and works better places.
