The most valuable thing I ever could do would be to continue the legacy that we had begun.
– Gail Miller (speaking about her thought process after the death of her husband Larry Miller)
Gail Miller is the matriarch of the family that owns the NBA basketball team the Utah Jazz as well as many other businesses. She was recently interviewed on the Jonah Keri Podcast.
In the interview, of the many things Gail Miller mentions that are consistent with the philosophy and the services that The Certior Group delivers, one idea stands out. Whether it’s developing a movie theater complex in Sandy, UT or keeping the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City or engaging in their numerous philanthropic initiatives, the members of the Miller family consistently express their values through generosity and active contributions of their time, energy, attention, and resources. Gail Miller seems very aware of an idea that we advocate; that is, “mindsets matter”. In sharing a parable about the gift of a valuable stone as well as the real-life stories of her family’s contributions to the state of Utah and their Salt Lake City community, she conveys the notion that one doesn’t leave a legacy; we live our legacies through the gratitude and generosity that permeates our lives.
