The Legacy Forum
"The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.” Benjamin Disraeli
The more the world changes, the greater the need for a strong, trusted advisor who is consistent but agile in their clarity and mission. We listen, ask incisive questions and often our work is to fine-tune as we walk with you. We build deep, significant, confidential relationships with our clients.
You have financial advisors or a family office that work with you to build and protect your wealth. The Legacy Forum was created to help you build and protect your personal legacy, your life and family. You are more than your personal wealth.
The word "legacy" conveys the idea of generations. Those generations that will inherit, be responsible for and we hope will continue investing their lives, talent and character to continue the work we passed on.
Legacy is about now, not later. What we do today matters. Everything counts towards our legacy. To fully live today we must think and plan wisely to build a legacy that lasts.
Your legacy starts with you. It is being clear about who you are and how you conduct your life today. Legacy is a life lived on purpose with mission and goals. Legacy is your choice to plan wisely for your life and for your family. Today your legacy is being created.
In 1994 I moved to Redmond, Washington, and was raising three children. I was consulting at Microsoft and many of the other early stage technology companies in the Seattle area. Redmond was filled growing families that attended the same schools as my children. As these children grew into their teen years, I started receiving calls from my clients to ask for resources and help for their teens.
Many of my personal advisory and executive coaching clients were business owners, senior level executives, NFL players and entrepreneurs. They came to talk about work but soon the conversation moved to their relationships, struggles with addiction, stress, personal crisis and the fear of losing their jobs or being found out for problematic personal situations. They were anxious about the future and how they wanted the best for themselves and their families. They were successful in their professional lives but struggled with their relationships and raising their teens and young adult children.
Giving their children big homes, cars, vacations, credit cards, educational consultants, therapists and believing money would keep them on the pathway to a successful life, did not necessarily work. These moms and dads were in anguish, trying to understand how a teen with a $100K car, who was popular and did well in class would commit felonies and even take their own lives. How they could run away from home and be found performing sex acts for heroin a thousand miles away. Everything they were doing to provide the very best for a bright and successful future, was a horrid mess. Many felt a deep sense of guilt and failure as parents.
I started The Legacy Forum to provide my clients with a powerful option to deal with personal issues as well as their relationships with their spouses and children.
Often there were issues of addiction. The rehabs they had attempted for themselves or their children, didn't seem to have the desired result. They didn't want to be "away" from work or have friends ask where their children were during extended absences .
Our bespoke model focuses on keeping clients in their homes and environment. It is a unique team approach which has proved very successful.
