The Legacy Show - Survival of the Creative - Hosted by Michael Ian Cedar

Why The Legacy Show #003 Is Free To Attend

How It All Began

I remember being 10 or 11 years old, sitting on the floor downstairs in my family’s home in Roosevelt, NJ and reading a self-help book into a tape recorder so that I could duplicate it and give it to my friends.

Maybe I was doing it because school was not designed for people like me, so helping others was my best attempt at an A+. Maybe it was because I liked making people feel good. Maybe I did it because I just wanted the attention from girls. I don’t know why I would do something like making my own pre-pubescent self-help audio cassette, but I always have done things like that and as far as I’m concerned, I always will.

I love to inspire other people.
And more than anything I love to help other people inspire other people.
And even more that that is to see someone do something they love.

Success breeds success
Love breeds love.
Inspiration breeds inspiration.

The Legacy Show

And… those are the reasons why I started THE LEGACY SHOW.
A show designed for accomplished individuals to show they are sometimes just as scared as the rest of us. That they also put their pants on one leg at a time. That they too are mortal and that they too want to bring #KickAss to the world.

I love putting on these shows because it gives the audience a chance to see first-hand that doing meaningful work is not only possible but also necessary to have a fulfilling life while here on earth. I keep the tickets free so that its possible for anyone to attend. It’s my goal in life to create a positive ripple on everyone in the world one way or another. That’s a tall order, I know, but I accept the mission.

The Legacy Show is a free show here in NYC, and features awesome presenters/speakers every month. If you’ve missed past shows or missed the emails with the replays, you can watch some of them here.
