Numerous definitions exist for what a legendary life is. My guest for today is someone who takes individuals through creating and living a legendary life. Following his release from prison as a young man, he worked at some of the world’s most fantastic financial consulting organizations, achieving corporate renown and financial success.

Here are my 3 insights for thriving:
- Do you want to live your life or live your story? You don’t have to continue to live the story that you’ve told yourself or that others have tried to write for you.
- To be legendary we need to lead ourselves, respect ourselves and love ourselves. We need to be able to do that not just for ourselves but for those around us because we can’t fully give those things to others if we can’t give those things to ourselves
- Remove the energy vampires. I loved how Tommy said it with his network and I’ve heard people talk about it this way about projects as well, but it’s either a hell yes or it’s a no.
