When was your lightbulb moment?

After working with buyers and sellers of HNW (millionaires) who owned a portfolio of properties, I realized attorneys write the contract to protect their client. Therefore, what if we wrote the plan that advocated for the best interest of our legacy compared to accepting the terms and conditions of outside parties?

We can either pick up stock plans for a building at The Home Depot or we can have custom plans drawn up. Why not fulfill your intentional destiny? Why not retain what has been established? Time to write the contract for your own legacy so you travel the right path in advancing all parts of your identity, internal landscape and humanity.

What are your three words of advice?

Special. Private. Priority.
Know that you are special. Align it in the private. Get it done.
It matters because I have seen what I don’t want for myself and others.

Three words of advice...

Define. Develop. Execute.
