Olivia's Latest from ThinkAdvisor - Newcomers and Natives in the Land of Wealth
Olivia's latest ThinkAdvisor.com content, Newcomers and Natives in the Land of Wealth, is now available online. From the article:
F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote, "The very rich [...] are different from you and me." The author of "The Great Gatsby" (and "The Rich Boy," where that quote appears) nailed it: Working with high-net-worth clients can be difficult for an advisor who is not to the manor born. But as Dr. Jim Grubman points out, life is no easier for the wealthy who were born middle-class themselves.
Olivia is selected to AdvisorOne's 2013 Top 25
Olivia was named to the Investment Advisor's 2013 Top 25, a select list of "the most influential individuals in and around the advisor business". From the article:
"We live," Olivia Mellan told us, "in an adolescent society" marked by a short-term orientation, where people "don't plan ahead and look at the whole picture." That is where advisors can help, acting, as Mellan likes to say, as "therapeutic educators" who "walk the talk." Since they "have a peaceful lack of anxiety in talking about money," they are then able to lead their clients to apply the tools needed to achieve their goals.

New York Times article quoting Olivia
Olivia was quoted in the New York Times article, Marriage Maintenance When Money Is Tight, which deals with couples communication in tough times. Here's an excerpt:
"When anybody is tired or under stress, they will always revert to their oldest primitive survival mode, which is usually dysfunctional," said Olivia Mellan, a money coach, author and therapist. Even couples with similar philosophies about money, she said, will find something to disagree about in this situation.

Passing It On - Dealing with Wealth and Inheritance
Olivia has been leading two to three-day retreats across the country, to help parents and their adult children facilitate deepening communication between the generations. These retreats help each generation clarify their values and goals around inherited wealth and the impact they want to make on the world and on their family and friends. In addition, these events have been tremendously successful, heartwarming and fun(!) as they create a safe climate for participants to become good stewards of inherited wealth, and for the parents to communicate their emotional legacy as well as their financial one.
