your wealthy clients
According to this radio interview with two scholars at the Center on Wealth and Philanthropy at Boston College,
there are over 120,000 families in the U.S. whose net worth exceeds $25
million. More than 10,000 families are worth over $100 million each.
As I listened, it occurred to me that these two social scientists, who
study the lives of the very wealthy, should have interviewed some of my
contacts, because few professions offer a closer view of their subjects
than those of residential architecture and custom building. Through my
work, I too, get a glimpse inside that world, but I still learned a few
things from this program. It's worth a listen. Not all of your clients
are among the super wealthy, but virtually all of the super wealthy are
potential residential architecture and custom building clients. And the
more you know about your clientele the better. --B.D.S.
