THE PODCAST PROJECT

The inspired legacies podcast project is a project of empowerment, collaboration and support for past, present and future inheritors and people with earned wealth. Navigating the waters of complexity and possibilities of wealth is often extremely challenging.

There are so many critical choices and lessons to learn or consider, while experiencing the powerful emotions of isolation, loss, fear, anger, jealousy, excitement, freedom and joy, as never before. However, many find these chapters of their lives to be full of great learning and opportunity for growth and change.  We are here to facilitate the sharing of this wisdom, positivity and empowerment. It is quite a package in the gift, AND complex at times to juggle.

We are delighted to present 48 podcasts in which we interview inheritors, wealth creators and trusted advisors throughout the United States.  We have listed below, some of the topics we will record and make available in 2015-2018. 

Thanks so much to our first interviewees! 

Thank YOU so much for your support and patience as we create the inheritance/wealth education, empowerment and preparation platform we've always wanted for ourselves and for others.

Myra attended the College for Financial Planning to learn the tools to map out her own financial future. At the time, she had no idea that it would lead to a lifelong career, resulting in the creation of The Wealth Conservancy (TWC) in 1983. Originally, Myra graduated with a BS in Chemical Engineering and worked for major corporations in that field. Unsatisfied with her work, she wanted to create and be a part of something more personally fulfilling.   Since shifting her career path over 30 years ago, Myra has been dedicated to helping our clients achieve the same fulfillment, as they find positive and effective ways to meet their goals and ambitions.

Myra is known by clients and colleagues as “the inheritors’ advocate,” and it is clearly apparent how much she loves her job, her clients, and her colleagues. In fact, even after three decades at the helm of TWC, she still thinks with the enthusiasm of a new business owner, seeing a big future of growth and prosperity ahead. Myra has been listed among the nation’s top financial advisors by Worth magazine, and is the author of four books. She’s the “celebrity” of the office, appearing on industry magazine covers, and is also a radio personality with on-air appearances.  Myra’s work-related interests include speaking to groups on the topics of building an ideal family office, graciously receiving an inheritance, and on how wealth creators can give their money away in a positive manner. Myra also facilitates workshops for inheritors, coaching them on integrating with their wealth.

We are on track with the support and guidance of our sponsors and colleagues to tape 36 podcasts about the emotional, relational, psychological and technical issues of inheritance and money and advisor teamwork. And we are producing 12 more podcasts just on generosity and giving. A total of 48 podcasts which you can listen to at any time And pass on, which we hope will be helpful to you and your family and friends.

Please join our email list and code if you are an inheritor, advisor and or earner. We will be adding a forum exclusively for inheritors by inheritors.
