  1. Ensure someone you trust has access to the data on your cell phone

As an entrepreneur, your cell phone is the key to the kingdom! There’s so much information about your business and personal life on your phone, so it’s important that someone you trust can have access to your data if you pass away. That’s why you need to set up a Legacy Contact!

Here’s why a Legacy Contact is essential:

● Continuity for Your Business: Your designated Legacy Contact can access essential information to keep your business operational. This includes client contacts, project details, and crucial financial data.

● Preserving Your Online Presence: Social media accounts and business profiles can become a valuable source of comfort and connection for your customers and community. A Legacy Contact can manage these accounts with dignity, sharing updates and ensuring a smooth transition.
