WHO WE ARE
The Living Legacy Project was launched in 2008 with a mission to save the living history of our time before it is lost forever.
To accomplish this mission, the International Association of StoryKeepers (I-ASK) was formed.
I-ASK provides training and support to a global network of independent Certified Legacy Planners and Advisors, who assist families and individuals with passing down a durable legacy portfolio.
Our Certified Legacy Training was developed by a team of recognized leaders representing key heritage industries: estate planning, wealth managers, caregivers, at home care providers, elder care, hospice, pre-need, funeral, grief management, memory care, as well as experts in the family history, archiving and genealogy sectors.
The synergy of these disparate expertise’s created not only a simple and intuitive process to collect, archive and selectively share life’s lessons and values but also a cascade of ancillary benefits to everyone engaged in this meaningful mission.

WHY OFFER LEGACY PLANNING SERVICES?
The market for legacy planning services is severely under-served. The survey below ranks the importance boomers and their parents place on passing down a legacy.
Despite the perceived importance of passing on a meaningful legacy, only a fraction of these generations have made any provisions to secure a legacy The primary reasons for this are due to the fact that most are unaware of what can and should be done and the inability to find qualified experts to put a legacy plan in place.
This vacuum presents a substantial opportunity to start a legacy consulting business or expand your existing repertoire of services in a meaningful way.
By providing legacy planning services you can generate high perceived-value revenue that enriches your clients, their families and you.
WHAT ARE LEGACY SERVICES?
Start by taking a Legacy Resource Inventory. This process opens your client’s eyes to the extent of their legacy content which can include vintage photos, letters, important documents, heirlooms, artifacts, recorded media of important family / life events, etc.
With this inventory list, organizing and prioritizing sessions aid in defining the scope of the project and the subsequent steps to building a meaningful Legacy Portfolio.
Steps may involve digitization of content, recording and documenting the client’s life lessons, values and experiences in addition to archiving aggregated content in LegacyStories.Org cloud secured vaults and on archival DVDs for absolute security from loss.
In addition, you'll help establish successor Legacy trustees to insure the Legacy Portfolio is preserved and built upon.
Legacy products can be produced from the client's newly digitized content such as: Pict-Oral Memoirs ™, photo books, slideshows, video tributes, etc., all revenue opportunities that are detailed in the certification training.
CAUSE MARKETING ADVANTAGE
Aside from word-of-mouth advertising, nothing compares with the effectiveness of cause marketing.
By promoting a cause rather than a product, opportunities arise to speak to groups and organizations that might otherwise not have been offered.
The Living Legacy Project is a cause that can touch the heart of every family in your community. We have produced a series of compelling videos for public education and raising awareness to both the value and the need to preserve this endangered experiential treasure.
Our program resources provide an entire library of presentation videos. The video below is one such sample that sets up the opportunity for you to help preserve and pass down valuable keepsakes and heirlooms as part of a comprehensive legacy portfolio.
Training is self-paced and delivered online with a personable approach. To deliver our legacy plans you will need an Apple or Android smart phone or tablet and also a computer with internet access.
The training is divided into two course modules, Certified Legacy Advisor and Certified Legacy Planner. Average time to complete the training is about 10-12 hours depending on your familiarity with internet navigation and basic digital technology.
Upon completion of the training, you will be immediately prepared to market and sell legacy services in you community.
Certified Legacy Advisors use cause-marketing to deliver powerful legacy education seminars and presentations to attract new clients and reconnect with existing clients in a meaningful way. Advisors make money on consulting and referral fees and sales of innovative legacy products.
Certified Legacy Planners work with clients to implement a full legacy plan, one that requires regularly scheduled billable meetings over the course of months and even years.
