Your legacy is more than a list of dates & milestones.
A Brilliant Biography fills in the colors, the shades, and the various hues, examining life’s gray areas. It’s about connecting the dots that initially may look random and haphazard, and turning them into a beautiful, cohesive picture of your life. This is a process, a meaningful exchange, and an investment.
The Highlights Package
The Highlights Package is a wonderful introduction to sharing your life story. This package may be smaller in scale but certainly not in significance. The Q&A format, conducted via email, is specifically designed to guide you through the various stages of your life, inviting you to share your memories and perspectives along the way. These glimpses into your life may be enhanced with your favorite photos as we find recurring themes, pull out signature quotes, and create a beautiful digital document showcasing your life story that makes a one-of-a-kind gift family and friends will treasure.
