The Legacy Show 7 - Hosted by Michael Ian Cedar

Listen to these inspirational speakers from “The Legacy Show #007 / ‘Un-f**k Thy Life’”

The great Dorie Clark, author of ‘Reinventing You’; the inspirational Faye Lane, an award winning writer & performer; the hilarious Mary Bridget Davies, actress who played Janis Joplin on Broadway; and the always excellent Jordan Matter, pro photographer and author of ‘Dancers Among Us’  – took the stage at LPR to tell us what ‘Un-f**K Thy Life’ means to them and how they got out of sticky situations to getting back on top, higher than before.

The Legacy Show, for those of you who aren’t familiar, is a bi- monthly live show in New York City that is based on the content of this blog. It is a quirky take on storytelling events that entertain AND get the listeners thinking about their lives in new ways. The performers and presenters are all people who gave a middle finger to the status quo. If you missed it (or if you want to re-watch any of it again) here are the links to the videos below or the full playlist link here:

It’s my utter joy to inspire others to get creative and break down barriers to get to where they can do meaningful work. I hope I get to see you at the next The Legacy Show in March 2017. Do you know of any speakers who would be good for one of our future events? Do you have a story to tell? Please send an e-mail to me at!

All proceeds from the show went to She’s The First! She’s The First provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries, fostering first-generation graduates and cultivating the next generation of global leaders.

Remember: Cute quotes and stories don’t make us successful; action does. Supplement your mind and soul with these stories, but the greatest achievements occur with what you do with the motivation.

Motivating the Legacy of You,
