By applying our proprietary methodology to extract the key leadership elements, we will begin a process to document the wisdom leadership in a practical and relative way specific to each leader and targeted consumer. This is accomplished through a skilled process blended with the reality that the leader is a finite resource. Through trust, we will take on the heavy lifting in all areas and principle protection as a nonnegotiable requirement.
Through principle protection we seek to preserve and document the thought contribution of the Wisdom Leader, both individually and corporately, for the betterment of society.
III. Vanguard - Legend - Partners
Vanguard's internal team along with industry clients and partnerships provide the business development channels required to advance the Wisdom Leader's content and platform. This is in the form of published books, training modalities, member communities, workshops, events, speaking and consulting.
Vanguard seeks industry, humanitarian and community leaders who maintain a vast span of influence combined with genuine values and the vision for a sustainable future. Each serves our fragile nation and its culture by advancing their personal and business leadership competencies and critical thinking skills.
“Wisdom Leaders reside all around us and are our greatest national resource to navigate this critical time. We must effectively communicate their contribution of experience, leadership and wisdom to the people. This is our obligation and we need our leaders to first Stand UP with us as a unified front to transcend our history, our culture, our values, and our lessons to our future generations. Vanguard and Legends & Legacy seeks to bridge that gap for our country, our communities, for our children and our grandchildren. This is your legacy!” ~ Suzanne Leonard
V. Legend - Partner
The critical challenge in this industry is the segmentation of strategic services offered between the wisdom leaders and required industry partners in order to bring them to market successfully. This is a niche and unique industry that has a steep learning curve, even for the most successful and seasoned business leaders. The industry is comprised of many services and functions that must work together in unison to effectively create exposure in this chaotic and noisy marketplace. Vanguard cuts though that chaos delivering legendary wisdom leadership to the consumer, be it individuals, corporations, associations, or communities.

Beyond the business plan and strategy, the core purpose of serving humanity is at the heart of Vanguard and Legends & Legacy's mission. The national team, partners and leaders are first and foremost purveyors of the vision. The world is in a very critical time of generational, technological, economic and political shifts and instability. The United States and the world needs super champions delivering hope and genuine leadership to all people.
While a hunger exists for growth and change, the noise is prolific from the Internet, Media and Hollywood, which make it nearly impossible to find the genuine thought leaders. Our job is to intentionally cut through the noise as a single trusted access point globally and advancing the next generation of legends out of the chaos. Through this platform, additional physical and digital channels connecting the individual to the thought leaders within and beyond their communities will be established. These channels along with the direct connection will impart the powerful messages needed today to adjust the global trajectories by empowering change- one life at the time.
Legends & Legacy is a grassroots movement to create Legacy Communities, Corporations and Individuals with the strategic mission to restore America from the inside out. This is achieved in alliance with the local and national Legacy leaders that currently exist in abundance across America. The agenda of Vanguard and Legends & Legacy is to create personal and economic change for people, communities and our nation. The ultimate mission is to empower our legacies to become independently sufficient in an effort to marginalize the national and global effects upon them.
