It all starts with an idea of building something that we have ben constantly told that we are great at! That greatness involves into a passion which transcends into creating a business for yourself. As one begins to build their brand image and build a sustainable business, the dust settles and you realize that you are building a legacy. Entrepreneurial legacy allows you to create the narrative of resilience, motivation, and gives meaning to what you do.
