The Skilled Inheritor

“Skilled inheritor” suggests the opposite of  the popular image of someone “already has it all”.

And there are specific skills needed to have […]

Feeling Useful is a Basic Human Need

Feeling Useful is a Basic Human Need

Inheritors have a particular challenge in the area of purpose and contribution, particularly in the USA. Because American culture assigns value to a person according to his or her earnings, and inheritors enjoy money without earning it directly, we tend to be simultaneously demotivated, disrespected, and envied. Inheritors, if we are to experience contribution and […]

The Prepared Inheritor

Hi, I’m Nathan Otto, and I’m an inheritor of wealth.

Most inheritors, sometime between the ages of 16 and 40, experience a crisis I call the Inheritor’s Dilemma. Our dilemma is this: we are “given everything”, but despite that, we are to one degree or another, unfulfilled, purposeless, ungrounded, empty.

Through years of study and varied personal and family experiences with my own wealth inheritance, and through interviewing, coaching and helping hundreds of wealth inheritors, I have uncovered repeated patterns of experience among inheritors.

I use these insights to help inheritors become fully happy with and responsible for their inheritance, both the money and inherited values, patterns and beliefs.

I’m passionate about helping inheritors become competent, comfortable and contributory in their lives and in relation to their inheritance. So I’ve created resources, including a complimentary download of my book Inheritor’s Dilemma, blogs and a community of inheritors.
