When I turned 30, something inside of me blossomed. I reflected over the fact that at that time, I was a wife, mother of 2, and was doing something I loved — sharing my story. I also decided that it was time to think about leaving legacy, and what that would entail.
This website became one of the biggest parts of leaving a legacy, especially to my little girl. As new “girl mom,” I felt empowered to be the example she needed to see. I wanted to lead by example. I wanted to achieve my audacious dreams, and encourage her to do the same.
What I didn’t expect is that while I was building my own dreams, and creating a legacy, I would be inspiring other women to achieve those things they never thought they could.
Want to get out of debt? It’s possible. Need to have some fun with your family, without spending a ton of money? That can be done, too. Want to be a homeowner? That dream can be reality. By sharing my story with you, and our community, there has been a mutual appreciation for the power of one woman to change her stars.
I wouldn’t dare call myself an unsung hero when it comes to leaving a legacy, but I do love to find fellow women who are passionate about creating history, generational wealth, and a story that future family members will be proud of for years to come.
I recently learned about MassMutual’s celebration of unsung heroes for Women’s History Month, and I couldn’t have been more excited. Celebrating the women who are leaving a mark is something that I feel many companies should do, and to see MassMutual take on this task was empowering. They are encouraging all of is to “live mutual,” and celebrate those that already do. Pretty cool.

How are you leaving a legacy for your family? What’s one thing you’ve done this month, in honor of Women’s History Month, to change your history? I’d love to know!
