Safeguarding

 

Lifelong Legacies strategy includes comprehensive interviews, Q&A and thought prompts that will facilitate exploring and articulating your personal legacy. These are the foundation for developing your whole portfolio.  

Two to three in-person meetings will help you discover what is important to you, what you value, messages you want to carry on and your life's work. 

​Lifelong Legacies provides you with documents that highlight your personal legacy and preferences for your loved ones. 

Your Personal Legacy Portfolio will include the following three components that can be updated by you (or Lifetime Legacies) any time as your life evolves:

Personal Legacy Development 

$1950

~A way for you to articulate your personal legacy to your loved ones by telling your story, memories, messages and wishes in a live format.  

The comprehensive interview will provide the tools to make this a memorable experience.  An audio recording or video (your choice) can be shared at any time creating a precious gift that will withstand the test of time.  A legacy can be a work in progress that you continue to build upon.  Family background is explored and documented for easy access for the entire family. 

1. In your own words

Explore

~A comprehensive preference document that includes your choices for your end of life wishes as it relates to arrangements, details, etc.   

Conversations about end of life remain a significant fear and are often uncomfortable to discuss. 

It is crucial to initiate these conversations before it is too late when the topic becomes unbearable.  By "writing it down", your family will be able to honor your wishes alleviating the stress in difficult times. 

2.  Writing it down

Articulate

~A comprehensive organizational program that provides the information and location of your current will, power of attorney, health care directives, estate planning documents, as well as information that is pertinent to your family should there ever be a need. 

Not being organized or efficient with your personal information can cause unnecessary stress and even panic during times of heightened chaos.  Do not leave this area unaddressed! 

3.  Safeguarding 

Preserve

Our highly skilled consultants can provide additional services not included in the Personal Legacy Portfolio. 

  1. Due diligence for your preferences and important paperwork, legacy projects, and education

  2. Ideas and support for special ways to preserve other moments in tangible forms for your family

  3. Lifelong Legacies provides team education for those that would benefit from Personal Legacy Development (special pricing for private team training)

  4. Updating or adding to your Personal Legacy Portfolio

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!
