More Than Just Your Money:
Leaving A Real Legacy
Who You Are & What’s Important to You
How I Guide You to Leave a Legacy That’s About Much More Than Just Your Money
After you are gone, your loved ones will miss you deeply. They will long for your words of counsel and concern. Hearing your voice again would be a tremendous gift.
Through a "whole legacy" process, you can give your loved ones the most precious gift - a lasting expression of your love.
What could be more valuable?
I believe estate planning is not just about transferring your financial assets and personal belongings. It’s also about capturing and transferring your valuable intangible gifts: who you are and what's important to you – your values, insights, stories and experience.
Your Legacy Lives On Through Your Words and Your Stories
How she wishes she still had that voicemail message.
Or even better, that she had a recording of her dad telling her what he loved about her, what his hopes for her were, what life lessons were most important to him, what values he most wanted for her, or even just saying her nickname that he had always called her.
You Could Make A Recording, But Who Has Time?
Several years ago, a friend's father died. He had left her a voicemail message on her cell phone and for years after he died, she would listen to it when she missed him. Until the very bad day when the voicemail was accidentally deleted.
I could tell my clients to record a message for their loved ones and put it in a safe place or simply write notes to their children letting them know how they feel about them. But so few people ever actually do it. We just get so caught up with the day to day of our lives that focusing on leaving a legacy seems to take a back seat.
I build this into the planning process and do not make it just another thing you’ll get done someday.
