“Your Legacy Project”- frequently asked questions
Most people think through their legacy in terms of financial impact. No matter how much wealth you accumulate, the most significant legacy you can leave is your values and wisdom for your loved ones and future generations. Your Legacy Project, recorded on video, is the most effective, powerful and long-lasting way to do this.
What is “Your Legacy Project”?
While your will and estate planning documents pass on your tangible assets, Your Legacy Project conveys your intangible assets – your thoughts and beliefs and can also impart life lessons and bestow deep and personal blessings on others.
What might be included in a Legacy Project?
- The values that have guided you through your life
- Financial advice or personal wishes for your financial legacy
- Advice and guidance for future generations
- Special messages of appreciation and caring for your family and loved ones
What will this include?
- Preliminary meetings to develop interview questions customized to your specific interests, values and advice you wish to pass on
- Filming of your legacy project interview in your home or office
- Editing your video project, DVD preparation, custom DVD artwork and more
Why do Your Legacy Project on Video?
The advantage of a video is that not only are your values and wisdom captured but your personality and your humanity show through.
How will I know what to say?
We will guide you through the process with our carefully crafted preparation questions to help you identify the life lessons that are important to you.
Why should I do it now?
We never know how much time we have on this earth. While there will always be excuses to avoid important tasks, you’ll want to take the time now to ensure you pass on your personal legacy.
Can I update it if I want to change or add to my legacy project?
Absolutely! Just like your will, your legacy project can be updated at any time – perhaps as your personal circumstances change, or with the birth of a new child or grandchild, or if you feel there is additional wisdom or advice you want to include.
How much time will it take?
From start to finish the process usually takes around 3-5 weeks. After the preliminary meeting, we will schedule an appointment for filming. Filming usually takes around 2-3 hours, plus time for set up. Delivery of your video legacy project and associated documents will be within 2-3 weeks of filming. If you have a pressing schedule, let us know and we will work to meet that.
