FOR FAMILIES & FAMILY BUSINESSES

At Conscious Legacy Coaching (CLC), we believe that family, and family-business relationships can be joyful, trusting, and relatively non-conflictual. No one, especially a high performing individual, starts a family, or a family business, believing that relationships with family members are going to become painful, disappointing, or high-conflict. At the very least relationships can be polite, neutral and peacefully co-existing.

CLC helps families just like yours get to a positive state through a combination of individual and family coaching. When desired, we also work hand-in-hand with your advisors to help you make the best choices you can make. When you don’t have the right people in your life, we help you find the best-of-the-best. The choices you make create your Life legacy. Consciously Live The Life You Want And Leave The Legacy You Choose – in your professional, in your family, and in your personal life.
