Establishing a Legacy


Your personal legacy is more than a statement of how you wish to be remembered. It is something that enriches your life and reveals who you are and what your life is about to your family, friends, and community. You were meant to create a legacy and it is never too early to get started.

But, how you go about it depends on any number of factors including your life stage, your financial and income needs and what you are most passionate about.
