One of the natural loves that humans possess is a love of place…the love of place shapes humans, conforming them to the topography of the landscapes they inhabit. – Dale M. Coulter
I spent my weekend working here at Legacy Ranch, getting ready to bring our horses home from the Black Forest in Colorado Springs, where they have been living since about mid-August. We had planned for them to stay at the boarding barn until spring, giving us plenty of time to prepare a place for them. But Cooper, our retired race horse, is not doing well. He needs to come home, to his own place where he can relax, knowing he is safe and loved where he belongs.
Driving the tractor, fixing fence and building stalls on a brisk fall weekend while the sun sank deep behind the mountain gave me plenty of time to think about this place, this Legacy Ranch.
What does it really mean to hold a place for someone … whether for an old horse, beloved friends or clients?
Legacy Ranch: The Gift of Place
We started offering private law firm retreats several years ago, when we first opened our Learning Center in the Olathe offices. Through the years, we came to realize that place did not fit the work. Oh, it was a fine place to learn about SEO, social media, click-through rates and sales funnels.
But it was not a place to Do Something Remarkable.
It was sterile, uninspiring, even confining. Your story, your vision is much more personal, creative and powerful.
We Created Legacy Ranch for You
Legacy Ranch is dedicated to lawyers who are committed to their clients, who work daily to protect individuals and families and help preserve legacies.
This is the Place to do the work we do. We intentionally created a place for growth, transformation, and vision. For you.
But, really, what is so special about a place?
I recently read Dale Coulter’s article, On The Importance of Place. In this short article, Coulter writes about our natural human love of place, and how places shape us.
“One comes to love life by loving the place of one’s sojourn through life and then one finds the reasons for this love in the tales one tells and the vision that emerges from those tales.”
Legacy Ranch is a place for you to rediscover your passion, find your voice and tell your story.
Because marketing is about more than clicks and views. It’s about connecting with people so deeply that they trust you to lead them to make the decisions – sometimes the very hard decisions – they need to make for themselves, their loved ones and future generations.
Without trust and leadership, even the most brilliant legal minds help no one.
Do Something Remarkable
My old horse just wants to come home. Cooper’s race is run.
But your story is different. Your story is just starting.
We are booked for private retreats at the Ranch through mid-January, but we can still get you in during the first quarter of 2018. Call James at 1-877-352-2021 to discuss your dreams, and find a place to Do Something Remarkable.
