"Our legacy needs to be what we live. Now, when it really counts."

The day we depart and look back on our life will be too late. There will be no time left to catch up, to create or to complete what we have not yet accomplished. Our legacy needs to be what we live. Now, when it really counts. Something that makes us jump out of bed in the morning, all fired up. Something that fuels our life and business. We already mark an imprint in people, in our communities and in the world through who we are, what we do and what we create. Let us capture it and take it to the next level! Business studies show that purpose at the core of a corporate strategy results in sustainable profitable growth. Personal development research demonstrates that purpose at the core of our actions and our work results in happiness and success.

Amélie shares six unforgettable stories of people, resilience, and resourcefulness.  

Women, men and children from Colombia, Guatemala, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cameroon, Afghanistan and North Korea will take you to the journey of acknowledging and embracing your inner diamond for a legacy fully lived in the now, in your personal, professional and business life.

Available worldwide in English (Speak and Live Your Legacy) and Spanish (Expresa y Vive tu Huella) in eBook or paperback.

"I read this book cover to cover as it was difficult for me to put it down. The stories that Amelie tells are full of humanity, kindness, and fire. After reading this book, I feel like I can run a marathon, go on humanitarian missions, talk to random people more, but mostly I feel the need to be kinder to myself. Thank you for your legacy, Amelie."
