Odyssey: Legacy 101, Sharing Your Stories

Each of us has a compelling personal story grounded in our individual experiences, passions, and goals. Our lives are adventure stories, filled with love and loss, challenges and rewards, successes and missed opportunities. Like ripples in a pond, we each leave an indelible mark on the people around us, and on future generations. However, for a variety of reasons, most of us neglect to record our personal stories. We tell ourselves we'll do it next year, or that "people won't be interested in what I have to say." The irony is that we're spending money on estate plans and wills, but we're not safeguarding the essence of who we are. In this transformative session, producer and communicator Rich Polt will teach you the basics of unpacking your own story, and techniques for capturing it as a gift to yourself and a legacy for the future. Using examples from his production company Acknowledge Media, attendees will be moved and entertained, as they begin sculpting the narratives of their own lives.
