We Are Having a Party all Over the World – And We Want YOU There!

Lately I’ve been so excited I can hardly sleep.

I see the core focus of Live Your Legend as being quite simple: Bring inspiring people together to help each other do work they love and change the world.

If we can do this online and in the real world, we can start to create more change and possibility than any single activity.

And I see the in-person part of this as a HUGE part of the future of Live Your Legend. And something that’s terribly underserved in a world obsessed with online connection and social networks.

That’s why we’ve recently launched our Live Your Legend LOCAL initiative – a way for Living Legends (all of you) to host and attend your own local events in your hometowns around the world.

When we first announced this a few weeks ago, you all went crazy with it.

And as a result we now have over 200 Hosts in 142 cities in 44 countries who will be hosting their own local meetups all over the world, on the same day, on January 7, 2014.

How crazy is that?!

On January 7th, we are hosting our first same-day global meetup, and it’s going to be an absolute party.

We’re actually even building a custom in-person connection app and website which we’ll be announcing next week (hopefully – it’s taken waaaay more effort to build than we thought. No surprise ;).

Take a second to think about this…

What if there were a place where anyone could go to find passionate and inspiring people in their local community, anywhere in the world, who believed in the same values and possibilities, and could help each other succeed in doing work that matters – both to you and to the world?

And imagine if that group met at least every month to discuss and build upon their big ideas.

What would that look like?

We’re building Live Your Legend LOCAL to find out.

It’s all based on a simple principle:

The fastest way to do the things you don’t think can be done is to hang around people already doing them.

Our goal is to help you find and do work that makes you come alive – by surrounding yourself with the people who make it possible. And there is no better way to genuinely and naturally connect with passionate, inspiring people than meeting them in the real world.

We believe that the world is at the heart of a global connection crisis.

In a world of never-ending online “connections” and friend requests, true friends are becoming fewer and farther between. We have lost sight of what it means to genuinely connect with another human in real time. To sit down with them and share our ideas and struggles. To discuss and discover what’s really possible.

The Internet has allowed us to connect with amazing individuals from all over the world, but we sometimes forget or undervalue the power of sitting in the same room with a living, breathing person. Those connections are essential, especially when you’re on the road less traveled – as all of us are!

So this is our next big step in solving that problem.

The days of feeling like you and your “crazy” ideas are all alone in this world are over!

We’re now officially in your corner. And right down the street. 🙂

All that’s left to do is show up.

Your task today is simple: Please find your city or a city near you below, click the link and register for your local LYL Meetup. 

I cannot wait to see what happens on January 7th!

I think it’s the start of something bigger than we can all imagine.

And I’m so glad and grateful to have you all a part of it.

It’s time to show up and join the party!


Below is a list of all our events by continent. Find one near you or search the page for your city, state or country. On a Mac just hit “Command + F”. Welcome to the party and Enjoy!

**Note: The exact venue locations for each event have yet to be decided by the hosts, so don’t worry about that when registering. Just know that they are happening on January 7th and they’re going to be awesome! More details coming soon…
