For Joe Wite, the Chief Operating Officer of Legacy Book, when they launched their new app it was the fulfillment of personal goal, satisfying his "Why", if you will.
We interviewed Joe Witte and Lindsey Stillwell from Legacy Book for our podcast.
According to Joe, “I joined the LegacyBook team so I can help families. I don’t want anyone to have to go through the painful experience I’m still dealing with.”
He and the company founder, David Thorne, wanted families to not have to sort out all of the financial assets and family heritage after a loved one has passed. So they designed a solution for financial planners.
