At the end of our life, what matters more than how charitable we have been throughout our life

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think.

As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so...

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so important to raise up great children that become productive members of society. The best way to raise children is by example. The way that we live as parents is likely what they will become. I am convinced that philanthropy and helping others is the key to living a successful life.

I am Ryan Van Wagenen and originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and now spend a great deal of time in Denver, Colorado. I have lived my whole life in Utah and Colorado and love the people in these regions.
