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.

Tiffany Maye | Soap Maker

When I think of what I will leave behind, I inherently think of the children in my life. I think of the things I wished those before me had left behind, paths they could have cleared and possibly fear they could have prevented. I want to be that for those little people looking up at me. I want to be someone who faced her fears in front of them. I want to be someone who cleared a path off the main road. I want to leave behind a plethora of knowledge but more importantly, grace. I want the eyes looking up at me to remember, I did what I did AND wrote it down, so they’d get to enjoy the process of their journey a bit more than I did. Read more>>

I don’t only want to be remembered as a hard worker, but I want everyone to know that I did work hard for my passions and my purpose. I would hope people remember me exactly as who I am.

I have tons of things in life I could have used as excuses to quit on the career path that I am pursuing, but you only get one life and you might as well chase something that you are passionate about. I have 10 total nieces and nephews and anytime I feel as though I am putting limitations on myself, I think about setting an example for them. I want to show the next generation that if you put in the work, you truly can achieve anything you put your mind to. Read more>>
