Safe Space with Francesco Lombardo

Nov 23, 2021

Elena Zafirova, a nxtgen herself, shares her journey from graduating from a top boarding school to becoming a UK & US qualified lawyer advising her friends’ parents on wealth management and tax matters, to joining the leadership team of a tech unicorn, to becoming the founder and CEO of DIONZ, a nxtgen education start-up. 

Elena and Francesco discuss the lessons and opportunities that lie in having “dark days” and the importance of building a strong value-aligned “personal advisory board” to remind us of who we truly are and what our purpose is. In Elena’s case, it is co-creating a world where we all support each other to learn how to prosper and bring prosperity to others. 

Elena's advice to senior generation family members: have meaningful conversations with your nxtgen family members as early as possible about all that is important including, but not limited to family values, governance, and wealth.

For nxtgens, Elena advises creating a “personal advisory board” of value-aligned humans to stand by you on your journey to realising your uniqueness.

In the second part of this episode, Francesco and Elena take a deep dive into exactly what Preparedness is, how to achieve it, and maintain it.
