You’ve moved mountains and built empires in your career and life. And, yet, even after all your accomplishments and successes, your legacy is still on your mind. You want to figure out your “next act” and how you will use it to answer that question that has been sitting on your mind: What is my legacy? What imprint am I leaving on the world?
On June 19, I had the privilege of spending a couple of hours over breakfast with an inspiring group of BCPWN members who care deeply about their communities. We talked about how they can live their legacy and use their next act to change lives, whether that means reinventing themselves through a new business or nonprofit, or adding a transformative give back component to their existing business.
BCPWN member, Mary Ziegler from Certified Financial Services, recognized a couple of her clients in the stories I shared of women wanting to create positive social change in the world in their next act but who aren’t quite sure what to do or how to start.
I am both humbled and thrilled to watch the growth of this movement of women using their power to change our communities (watch out for my story in the upcoming O, The Oprah Magazine).
Thank you, BCPWN, for opening up your hearts and minds to consider how our collective legacies will create healthier, safer and more justice communities for everyone.
