Myra Salzer begins her talk by offering an intriguing, but simple idea: those who inherit large sums of money are simply humans. Like all minority groups, they did not choose their status, and most can do nothing about it. They are not to be scorned or manipulated. She describes the difficulties they face -- all of the judgements and real issues they must confront, and asks us, as humans, to treat them as humans.

Myra Salzer is the founder of The Wealth Conservancy, Inc., established in 1983. She specializes in fee-only financial planning as a wealth-coach and inheritor’s advocate and has been featured in a variety of publications including Worth, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Financial Planning, and Investment Advisor. Myra is also a Huffington Post blogger and a contributor to an array of media outlets and radio talk shows.
