People Who Changed the World. . .
Over 200 million Americans can trace their ancestry back to a family member who first set foot on American soil at Ellis Island. A dramatic turning point in most of our family histories. Remembering our roots, we know more about ourselves. And the power of the human spirit that resides within us all.
Our Age Needs Good Stories
America is remarkably blessed to be built upon the foundation of truly notable and gifted individuals of creative energy and ingenuity who enrich our nation with varying expertise to fill out the grand narrative of our heritage and national identity.
The Leaders and Legends featured within these pages: business leaders, self-help legends, spiritual leaders, health and wellness professionals, artists, authors, sport icons, as well as recognized community leaders, selflessly share their life philosophies and lessons of self-mastery, that powerfully speak to today's dreamers of the importance of believing in oneself in achieving one's dreams no matter his/her background.
Ultimately, we live, we learn, and we evolve in the way we think about things. In that light, we include sage voices –- American Leaders & Legends of past and present – into a chapter – "As You Think" –- to access the very thought at the very moment you may need instant inspiration to pursue your dream and make things happen.
We believe all America's entrepreneurs share a commendable making-things-happen spirit that transcends borders and cultural differences. It is our hope to continue to chronicle individual stories of dreams, struggles, hope, opportunities, and success, to inspire everyone who comes across its vision.
A story may just be a story, but once it is out there – accessible to those who we may never know may need it, a story can be powerful enough to positively turn a life around, while giving this and future generations a greater opportunity to learn more about us, our times, and our experience. As together, we reach for the stars.
