Our Tale

Robison Family picture 9-15

We’re an entrepreneurial family that loves to learn, work, play and pray together.

We believe in leaving a legacy of faith for loved ones.

In fact, there’s nothing more important to us than faith and family.

 

Family is our Why

Family is why we traded the 9-5 corporate security for our 24-7 husband-wife partnership. 

While I’m grateful for the skills I developed in public affairs and nonprofit executive roles, I’m even more grateful to apply them now to work that is deeply meaningful. And remarkably, working together daily as partners in business and family is refining and rewarding.

Family is why we choose the roller coaster life of entrepreneurship.

Because we know our years are limited with our children, we make unconventional choices toward time and location independence. Having the flexibility and freedom to choose how and where we spend our days is worth more than we even imagined.

Family is why we are intentional about making and keeping memories.

We want to live without regrets, and consciously choose to collect memories instead of things. As we are deliberate about our parenting and family choices, our family culture more closely aligns with what matters most.  

Family is why we record and share stories across generations.

As I capture meaningful memories, feelings and experiences, I enjoy personal growth and healing. I also leave a priceless legacy for my loved ones.

Family is why we research and use technology to document family life.

With remarkable tools in the palm of my hand, I can collect, curate and share photos and memories more easily than ever. And I can share my passion with a broad audience across the globe.

Family is why we founded Legacy Tale.

Family is our why.

 

If family is your “why,” too, we’d love to help you make and keep memories.

Hilarie H. Robison, M.A.
Founder, Owner, and Chief Teller of Tales

All my life I’ve been a writer. Not the exciting, become-famous, write-great-works-of-fiction kind of writer. The words that live inside me are the kind that tell true tales, works of inspiration and information and contemplation. Words that analyze and make compelling arguments for action. I can’t help composing strings of words that flow together in my head, nonstop. Phrases with alliteration, description, and meaning. Around the clock, my brain is unwittingly composing.

In high school, I earned my first $500 in a writing contest on a topic of political analysis. My college, grad school, and career writing continued in that vein, with written works published and awards earned. My words helped change public policy and public opinion, helped teach young people and old, helped train and motivate and educate. At times, my words even inspired.

My words earned money and recognition. Yet they didn’t leave a legacy. At least not the kind that holds meaning for me now.

Now I’m thrilled to help others use words in giving meaning to a life well lived, to help good people recall the past and reflect on the present, to capture and preserve tales of legacy.

I used to seek inspiration for the words in my head. Now the words come from others telling their tales. Now the words inspire me.

I’m a third generation native Las Vegan who graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University (Provo) and later earned a Master’s in Ethics and Policy Studies.  I’ve worked professionally for many years in roles that built and strengthened my leadership, strategy, analysis, and communication skills. With more than twenty years of writing and publication experience, I’ve written and presented widely on a variety of topics throughout North America. Today my family and I call rural Moapa Valley, Nevada, our home.

Ben Robison
Founder, Owner, Head Magician, and Teller of Tall Tales

I’ve spent 19-some-odd years working in the computer and IT industry.  Technology has changed a little in that time.

Like most computer geeks, no one really understood what I did, so I have found it easier (and usually more amusing – to me at least) to say I practiced magic (or voodoo, witchcraft or priestcraft, depending on my mood and the audience).  A few years ago, I started sourcing and selling physical products on the Internet, and doing some Internet marketing.  I found it was fun and I was pretty good at it.  However, it’s a skill that, like IT, is somewhat unfamiliar, so “magician” still works.  I also like to call myself an Internet marketing sage, since ninja and guru are overused.

When I’m not practicing the mystical arts of IT and Internet marketing, I enjoy trying to convince my children that some outlandish story I made up is true.  Since they’re getting older, they have caught on to most of my tricks, but I still enjoy the looks they give me when I make up stories… and I love hearing them try to take my story and improve upon it.  One of their great-grandfathers used to say, “There’s no point in telling a story if you can’t improve it!”  I’m proud to see them take that advice to heart.
