Legacy For building your legacy with the financial assets necessary, consider reaching the powerful point of financial independence. This point includes when you do not owe any money to lenders, such as a mortgage, credit card, or other loan provider.The second component of your independence point is when you realize full control of your productive time. It is then that you do not go to work for someone else, and are not constrained by an employer’s demands. Until you occupy these two places, you could face obstacles in truly focusing on your legacy.Legacy is about making a difference in the world, reflecting your purpose. You choose how broad and deep to take your efforts and vision. Your chosen world of interest could be constituted by a child or grandchild, an organization in your local community, or perhaps a group with worldwide influence.Only you can determine the appropriate mix of dedicated time and financial resources. At Family Legacy Concepts, we will engage you in the discussion, in the planning, and with the action steps.Your Children and GrandchildrenThere are many investment and insurance vehicles for passing financial assets on to your children and grandchildren.
