When was the last time you watched a movie encouraging people to build generational wealth?  Wealth creation and sustainability is such a critical message, yet rarely placed in the spotlight for regular people to ponder and pursue.  Instead, society is bombarded with get-rich-quick schemes and gambling bets.
