The very wealthy tend to rely on an array of professionals to help them manage their businesses, to structure and direct their fortunes and to navigate their lives. Felicity is one such professional-and she does it all.
She has addressed a wide variety of issues on behalf of her exceptionally prosperous clientele. Her most intricate advisory relationship involved directing the strategy for a multibillion-euro cross-border acquisition. One of her clients asked her to decide if he should get divorced and run off with his children's nanny. She often helps determine who should inherit the family business. Felicity regularly provides advice on which lovers her clients should select and, most importantly, how much to "spoil" them. The most common request she gets is to evaluate potential business deals.
Felicity will only work for one client on any day and a session with her is no more than a couple of hours. For this she's paid a minimum of 20,000 euros. She determines the cost of a session based on its difficulty, which can only be ascertained after the fact. Felicity has charged as much as 65,000 euros for a single session, but the average session ranges from 20,000 to 30,000 euros. She works only when she wants to. Once she formally started her business, she regularly turned away potential clients.
The fact that she inherited about 25 million euros makes it much easier for her to be highly selective.
Felicity can work with her super-rich clients on any conundrum or concern. She has been advising the extremely wealthy for a little more than two decades. She informally began her "career" at the age of 16. It took another six years or so before she charged a fee in response to the extensive demand for her services. Before that, she would advise only family and close family friends. Her amazing accuracy and results-oriented approach turned her gift into her business.
It's clear Felicity isn't your run-of-the-mill advisor to the super-rich. According to her clients, she has a gift-the ability to see the future and make insightful recommendations. She works her magic by reading tarot cards.
The tarot originated in northern Italy, during the early Italian Renaissance, around the early 15th century. The tarot is a set of 78 cards, including 22 cards referred to as the Major Arcana. There is also the Minor Arcana, consisting of 56 cards divided evenly into four suits: wands, pentacles, cups and swords. The way the cards are placed for a reading is called a spread. One of Felicity's preferred spreads is the Celtic Cross. However, she is very fond of shape-based spreads, including the Steps of Knowledge and Orgasmic Destiny.
When I was discussing writing this article about her, she shuffled a tarot deck. Then she placed seven cards on the table forming the Star of David with a card in the center. In the center was the Queen of Pentacles. At each of the six corners of the star were the King of Swords, the Seven of Cups, the Eight of Pentacles, the Sun, the Two of Wands and the Lovers. She then smiled and here we are.
