The Greatest Transfer of Wealth in History Should Come as Values—Not Valuables.

– Renown Publishing's Vision

Don’t Share Too Little of Your Story Before It’s Too Late.

You’ve faithfully built a life through blood, sweat, and tears. But have you…
  • Stewarded your mission for future generations? 
  • Codified your values & core beliefs?
  • Used your narrative as a platform and purpose?

“If there is not intentional communication ... it's tantamount to withholding affection.You didn't just get where you are overnight—and your kids and grandkids need to hear those stories."

— Russ Crosson

Let's Shape, Write, & Share Your Legacy Story

A life is only as good as its story.
