15. Your Legacy Letter and Learning to Follow Your Conscience

Welcome to the View from the Top podcast! In this episode, we are joined by Blake Brewer as he talks about the power of legacy letters - letters written to loved ones to pass along wisdom, advice, values, and memories. Blake shares his personal experience writing a legacy letter to his children and explains the incredible impact such letters can have on people's lives. He discusses how writing a legacy letter can strengthen relationships with children and grandchildren, create a more productive corporate team, and help spouses become better.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Blake reflects on his father's final moment of kindness, how it has impacted his life, and how it has inspired him to be generous to others.
  • Especially in times of tragedy, a father's love and words can provide comfort and guidance.
  • We should use our hardships and difficult life experiences to help others.


Blake is on a mission to help 1 million dads write at least one well-written, meaningful, lasting Legacy Letter to their children. Blake has a wonderful wife and loves being a father to his three children, all under 6. As he leads his family, he draws from many mentors, but none more important than his late father Larry Brewer.
