Several members of the BrightStone family recently shared their moments through the Mutual of Omaha "Aha moment tour".
According to Mutual of Omaha, an "aha moment" is a moment of clarity, a defining moment where you gain real wisdom - wisdom you can use to change your life. Whether big or small, funny or sad, they can be surprising and inspiring. Each one is unique, deeply personal, and we think, worth sharing.
Mutual of Omaha celebrates and honors these moments and the people who act upon them.
Please click on the photos below to hear the individual "aha moments"!
