Tonya Rapley: Will Your Legacy Last?

When you leave this earth, what will people see as your legacy?

The things we do today will determine how the next generation operates in the future. Showing up authentically, operating in alignment with our purpose, and creating resources that serve and elevate others will give us the opportunity to make a difference and have an impact.

We are called to create and leave a legacy, but how we do it will vary based on our gifts and talents. How can you show up today, so that a piece of you remains for all to see?

Today’s guest is an internationally recognized speaker, financial educator, best-selling author, and serial entrepreneur based in Atlanta.

Furthering her commitment to holistic wellness, she recently purchased Club Loofah, an inclusive self-care brand focused on inspiring and supporting regenerative practices for all.
