Our guest today is Millie Chan. Millie is a lawyer with over 30 years of experience working in Malaysia and Vancouver. She is the founder of Legacy 127 Consulting, a senior consultant with the Canadian national law firm BLG, and a consultant with the Malaysian law firm Shearn Delamore & Co.
In our conversation with Millie, we discuss her work with helping ultra-high net worth families in Asia with inter-generational wealth transfer and her holistic approach to wealth, which includes intangible assets such as family identity, vision, values, and traditions. Millie also shares how as a newer Christian, she felt it would be a higher calling to leave her work as a lawyer and join full-time ministry, and what changed in her to allow her to see her legal work as doing God’s work.
Highlights from the podcast:
The work that Millie does serving high net worth families
Millie’s story of being antagonistic towards God and God pursuing her
The misconceptions that Millie felt about calling, feeling like she had to muster up courage to leave the marketplace to do church or ministry work
Why Millie feels privileged to work alongside patriarchs and matriarchs
How Millie’s holistic approach goes beyond the practical work of asset management, and goes deeper to the work of mending relationships between family members and facilitating important conversations
