Coventry Edwards-Pitt, Chief Wealth Advisory Officer, provided the keynote address to the Southeastern Family Office Forum. Drawing from her book, “Raised Healthy, Wealthy and Wise: Lessons from Successful and Grounded Inheritors on How They Got That Way”, she discussed reasons for why some children from wealthy families grow up to be productive and thoughtful adults.

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.
