Can giving away your wealth as a philanthropist possibly be more difficult than creating your wealth in the first place? The answer according to seasoned philanthropist Tej Kohli is a resounding ‘yes’. In ‘Rebuilding You: The Philanthropy Handbook’ Tej Kohli sets out to share the wisdom that he has garnered during his two-decade transition into philanthropy so that would-be philanthropists can avoid common mistakes and maximize their own impact.
Tej Kohli says that you don’t need to have the wealth of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or Michael Milken to be able to make a difference as a philanthropist and that anyone with wealth can help others. But many of the formulas upon which would-be philanthropists have built their wealth simply will not work as they start to give their wealth away. To succeed as a philanthropist, you must also be ready to change your analysis and how you think. You must rebuild you.
