A few different reasons. First, it's a company worth a lot of money, not that much money in cash. He has a decent size nest egg, but he's more than 20 years older than my mom, who has never worked a day in her life. I do stand to inherit a portion of the company, but I really wanted to build my own career in the meantime. My brother is in line to be the CEO one day and I would rather not work for him.
If we ever sell the company I will probably get a nice chunk of change but there's no plan to do that in the forseeable future.
