Coventry Edwards-Pitt, Ballentine Partners’ Chief Wealth Advisory Officer, was featured in a recent podcast by Real Assets Adviser. Mike Consol, editor, spoke with Covie to learn more about her, why she wrote the book, “Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise”, and to hear about the key lessons she learned from the grounded and successful inheritors that she interviewed.
At a certain level of wealth, money makes parenting harder, not easier. Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise breaks new ground in the field of raising children amid wealth by hearing from the success stories: real-life children raised with wealth now grown into happy, healthy, and productive adults. Nationally recognized wealth advisor Coventry Edwards-Pitt draws on her many years of professional experience to interview successful heirs and uncover what works—and what doesn’t—in raising wealthy children to lead fulfilling and productive lives. While there is a lot of advice out there for affluent parents, this is the first book that allows us to hear directly from children who survived the gauntlet of being raised with wealth and emerged happy, healthy, and productive on the other side. Why do they think they have become successful? What went right? And how? Readers will find that these voices speak with a clarity that will inspire parents faced with these challenges to take the steps necessary to set their children on the path toward health and happiness.
