Personal Legacy Portfolio
The Whole Path
The Last Chapter
The Personal Legacy
Owners & Founders
While traveling together, the concept of our company began organically. Conversations about legacies in our personal and professional lives led us into deeper discussions. We both realized we had a passion to help others design what their own personal legacies would be.
Our own personal legacies expanded,
taking a new path!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who benefits from completing their legacy?
A: Singles. Couples. Families. Aging generations.
Those faced with an illness. New parents. Gift givers. Gift receivers.
Q: Do you provide legal, financial or medical advice ?
A: Lifelong Legacies consultants can refer legal, financial & medical decisions to appropriate parties. We facilitate conversations (including the hard ones), educate throughout the process, & assist you to identify/organize/record pertinent & critical items for your personal legacy portfolio.
Q: How is a Personal Legacy Portfolio different from my estate planning or last will & testament?
A: A Personal Legacy Portfolio defines what you leave behind, your specific remembrances and ideas that are unique to you (personal legacy, family history & background, end of life preferences & critical paperwork).
Generally, estate planning covers the estate (possessions & property). A will is a legal declaration of a person's property & estate after death. Trust documents do address some of these areas but need to be facilitated.
Advance directives generally only include a health care proxy & living will.
Lifelong Legacies will help assemble these crucial areas as you age.
Q: Why choose Lifelong Legacies?
A: Lifelong Legacies gets the job done! Most people know they should have the conversations but life & time constraints get in the way so most NEVER do! Our team has devised a format that is in depth & comprehensive, and is an enjoyable process facilitating wonderful conversations covering areas most people do not think of. Engaging in our services will better prepare you, provide peace of mind, while decreasing stress & anxiety.
Q: Why is this a gift?
A: Imagine your legacy (your stories, messages, & wishes) living on forever.
Imagine your preferences stated & known. Imagine your important paperwork organized in one location.
These are reasons why a personal legacy portfolio is a priceless gift that can be shared among loved ones!
