Living Your Legacy With No Boundaries

by Barbara Shaiman

We’ve all heard about everyday people who have righted wrongs, or singlehandedly made a difference in someone’s life. We read countless stories of people who zealously take up a cause after enduring an injustice or tragedy. But creating a legacy is not always just about what you do. It is not about individual actions. It is the core of who you are, how you act, and how you react in life—at home and in business, in private and in public.

It comes with the mom-job. Traditionally, we’re responsible for the everything at home. (I’m not saying dads aren’t responsible, but when’s the last time you heard a 10-year-old yell out “Daaaaad?
