Marie Osmond believes in the power of hard work, and she’s proud that she isn’t leaving an inheritance behind for her children.

Osmond feels that she’ll be denying her children the chance to try to make it on their own if she left them a fortune.

In an Us Magazine interview, Osmond said, “To me, the greatest gift you can give your child is a passion to search out who they are inside and to work. I mean, I’ve done so many things from designing dolls [and much more]. I love trying [and] I wanna try everything. I’m a finisher.”

Osmond said that she pushes her kids to finish what they start–even if the process makes them decide they don’t ever want to try the hobby or project again.

“That’s one of my rules with my kids. If you start it, you finish it, you don’t ever have to do it again, but you gotta finish. And, I just think all [an inheritance] does is breed laziness and entitlement. I worked hard and I’m gonna spend it all and have fun with my husband.”
