Yesterday was the end of an era for our family. Our last surviving grandparent passed away at the age of 95. Grandma Shaw lived a full life, and shared many lessons with us over those years.
The next few days will be a little more introspective than normal…filled with memories, and thoughts of her, and experiences we shared together. Birthday’s, baptisms, graduations, weddings and other important events, she has always been around to share them with. Although I obviously don’t remember, she was even the one who potty trained me, when Ryan was born.
It’s the Feeling That Matters…
Maya Angelou once said:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.”
It was no different with grandma Shaw. Over lunch today, Ryan and I talked about some of the memories that we have of her. Most surrounded some event, but true to Maya Angelou’s quote, we remembered mostly how those events and people in those events made us feel.
As a tie to our Swedish ancestry, grandma, used to make us “Swedish pancakes” (a type of crepe) for breakfast when we would have a “cousin sleepover” in her home.
The tradition continued while growing up with mom making us breakfast on special occasions, such as a birthday, or the first day of school.
Now with our individual families, we continue on with this same tradition in our family, with our children.
Again, it is not the flour or the eggs, or even the day that makes it special, but the emotion that you feel surrounding the day or event.
In our last blog post, we shared with you why we created the B.O.S.S. Wealth Plan. Today, we want to ask why you have created or are looking to create your own individual, family, or business B.O.S.S. Wealth Plan? Because that WHY is the true heart, emotion or passion of the B.O.S.S. Wealth Plan.
We often share with you about how to:
What Legacy Will You Leave?
But in reality those ideas are just ways to help you start thinking of ways to reach your goals and dreams custom tailored to you. As we’ve listened to you, we’ve heard dreams that stir up passions such as:
- I want to pay for a child’s or grandchild’s education
- Start or expand a business
- Take a dream vacation as a family
- Make sure my spouse and I never outlive our money
- Donate regularly, or leave a legacy to my favorite charity or cause
- Pass on my wealth to family
- Plan for a relaxing retirement
- A Dream wedding for children or grandchildren
- The list is endless…
One of the most rewarding aspects of interacting with you, and helping you implement your B.O.S.S. Wealth Plan, is to be a part of your WHY!
So take a moment, and think about what the WHY is for your B.O.S.S. Wealth Plan. What gets you excited, or stirs your passions in some way? What is the legacy that you want to pass on to the next generation? How does it make you feel? How do you want the next generation to feel about your legacy?
