So many of the folks we work with have multidimensional stories. They often aren’t just working on a single project, business or mission – instead they are often involved in so many things all at once and so we often wonder about what they themselves hope their legacy will be about. We’ve shared some of their responses with you below.

Eric Chow | Chief Consultant at Mashman Ventures, Public Relations & Branding

The topic of legacy is a powerful one. When I was 18 years old, an academically intelligent yet undecided major attending community college, the “adults” in my life were constantly asking me “what do you want to be when you grow up? what do you want to do?” I never knew how to answer that question, so I asked one of my friends and now-mentors about it. He told me to ask myself: “How do you want to live? Who do you want to be?” Read more>>

Robyn Ritter Simon | Tablescape Stylist & Deliver of JOY

I want my legacy to be that I built a life delivering joy to my family, friends and clients by designing memorable experiences. It’s not just about setting a stylish table. It’s about the experience you create with your designs and how guests feel. With age comes wisdom and at 60 I’m very clear on what truly matters in life. The human interactions we create with one another is the priority. It’s not about the stuff we amass, it’s about the memories we collect along the journey. Read more>>

Jennifer Young & Jessica Elliot | Elliot Young Co-Founder’s | Designer’s

Ultimately, we want people to remember us through the impact we make on youth crises through our jewelry. Of course we want people to remember us for our designs, but what we really want is for them to remember how our jewelry makes them feel. We want them to know our designs come from our passion for creativity and for children that don’t have the same chances in life. We want to be remembered as authentic givers who started an impact program before it was the “norm” to give back. Read more>>

Curtis Allie (Dfg Curt) | Valet service owner, Jet Ski Rental owner & Influencer

My Legacy is going to be about helping those that don’t have a opportunity, don’t have a voice and have no knowledge of anything outside of their environment. My legacy is going to be more than money, more than fame more than even just putting people on. I put myself in the shoes of the major business moguls like Master P, Jay Z and 50 Cent. To come from similar backgrounds of the streets and being targeted by other gangs and police I always said I’m gonna be another one of those to use my platform for good and express myself because the change starts with us and this generation. Everything I’m starting and have started will be here when I’m gone. From businesses to finding artists to even putting my own label up one day it’s all going to be here when I’m gone. Some people support me and some don’t like me and that’s cool, either way I will be remembered as a great. Read more>>

Stacy Shon | Creative Entrepreneur | Watercolor + Hand Lettering Artist

I want my legacy to be about freedom and possibility. Ever since starting Letters & Feathers, my own little calligrpahy + watercolor art shop, I’ve been challenged in many ways to do things I’m uncomfortable with, yet it is in that place of discomfort and feeling of inadequacy that opens the door for possibility. There have been countless times I thought I couldn’t paint something a client requested or wanted to decline a big project because I was too intimidated. By saying “yes,” instead of “I can’t,” emerged a sense of freedom that was exhilirating. Read more>>
