About the Book

In a world where racism, violence, illness, and poverty can feel so overwhelming that we often close our eyes—and our hearts—to the suffering around us, we may not believe we have the power to change things. As Barbara Greenspan Shaiman shows us in Live Your Legacy Now!, this simply isn’t so. This part memoir and part how-to guide provides the tools and strategies to help you create meaningful change in your own life as well as in the lives of others.

The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Shaiman shares stories from her family history and over thirty years of her own life experience as a successful educator, business woman, and social entrepreneur to inspire and guide you to create a vision and plan for initiating a personal legacy. Shaiman details her effective ten-step approach by helping you:

• Identify your core values, interests, and skills
• Reflect on how you can use these assets to create meaningful projects that make a difference locally or globally
• Share these experiences with family, colleagues, and friends to create cultures of caring at home, at work, and in your community

Live Your Legacy Now! provides a simple formula to help people of all ages and backgrounds live richer, more meaningful lives by creating projects for personal growth and social change.
