Covie Edwards-Pitt, an executive with a Waltham wealth management firm, visits Wellesley Books on Oct. 22 at 7pm to read from and discuss her new book, “Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise: Lessons from successful inheritors on how they got that way.”
The book is centered around interviews Edwards-Pitt did with children of wealthy families who have grown up to be productive, engaged, self-motivated adults. The author gets at family messages that these inheritors think contributed to their success. The book is organized into 5 chapters of key lessons, with real-life anecdotes and quotes woven throughout. We’re told the lessons here apply not only to those in the 1%, but also to anyone raising children in an environment more affluent than their own upbringing.
