Get to know Erin Arnheim, CEO of Legacy Collective, in the newly released Shoutout DFW article! Erin discusses the importance of integrity and chasing your dreams while sharing her journey with Legacy Collective.

“Integrity matters most to me. When I think of the word Integrity, I think of someone who strives to be honest in all they do and sticks to their moral principles even if that comes with a personal cost.”

Erin also shares her ideal day spent in Austin and highlights some must-visit local businesses.

Shoutout to:

The Salt Lick

Lastly, Erin pays tribute to Jen Hatmaker for being a wonderful mentor.

“Jen Hatmaker, Legacy’s Co-Founder, is incredibly worthy of this shoutout! She has used her influence to connect me to women that I can learn from; she has stood up for me in uncomfortable situations unlike anyone I have ever worked with; and she has made sure that I feel supported, loved, and appreciated for not only my work but for who I am as a person.”
