Jann Freed | Breadcrumb Legacy: How Great Leaders Live a Life Worth Remembering

@ Beaverdale Books

Legacy can seem far off and out of reach, but it doesn’t happen at journey’s end and it’s not only for the rich and famous. Legacy is now, and this book shows leaders how you can find and leave meaning on a daily basis. Breadcrumb Legacy™ introduces Jann Freed’s pragmatic approach, made up of small actions you consciously take over time that accumulate into the legacy you’ll leave behind.

  • How can learning to be a better person make you a better leader?
  • How can you live with meaning and on purpose?
  • Why is it important to embrace death in order to live fully?
  • Why are relationships the key to living a meaningful life?
  • How to make friends as an adult

Breadcrumb Legacy provides answers to these questions and others, so you can:

  • Live with meaning and on purpose.
  • Live a fulfilled life.
  • Live a life worth remembering.

Since the themes are universal and everlasting, Breadcrumb Legacy will have a long shelf life because it can change how you live your life every day.  Legacy is not for later. Live your legacy now.
