Legacy is a big word.
When I was younger and heard the word, it was in regard to older people who’d lived out some form of impressive, maybe even heroic lifetime journey only a few would be able to measure up to.
Now in my middle years, I think of it as a life well lived each day.
As I traveled to Ironwood to celebrate Gina Jacquart and honor her father Bob (who renewed legendary brand Stormy Kromer), I experienced a 50-year family legacy at its finest.
What made it extraordinary was how simply profound the essence of a meaningful journey is. A simple recipe for a meaningful business and life resulting in legacy.
- Humble beginnings never forgotten
- Well cared for, meaningful relationships
- Persistent, value driven, hard work
- Willingness to learn with and from one another
- Do the right thing and keep your word
- Incredible storytelling
- See and seize the connections, they’re everywhere
I believe legacy is the sum of many days consistently well lived and witnessed.
It’s the collection of many shared moments worth talking about.
How’s your legacy?
