About Legends of Success
Join John Resnick every week for a unique radio program featuring insights from our country's most successful entrepreneurs, entertainment icons, and members of the prestigious Forbes 400 List. This program offers listeners a rare opportunity to hear first-hand the exclusive interviews and personal journeys of how America's greatest legends made it to the top. Legends Of Success debuted on January 12, 2002 on a single radio station in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The show is now broadcast on over 100 stations across America.
Whether its Steve Forbes talking about the about the history of Forbes Magazine, William Lauder sharing the incredible growth of The Estee Lauder Companies, or Howard Schultz, Chairman & CEO of Starbucks sharing his first-hand account of Starbucks’ phenomenal expansion from a single location in Seattle to a Worldwide brand, listeners are treated to an entertaining and educational hour with the people whose companies have become household names.
Legends of Success was originally inspired by the success stories host John Resnick heard from his estate planning and life insurance clients. A former adjunct professor and frequent lecturer at The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, John’s experience of presenting educational seminars for some of America's most successful family-owned businesses combined with his background in the entertainment business has brought a unique perspective to the show. "I continue to hear incredible stories from people who started their own business with absolutely nothing," John says. "Many of them made extraordinary sacrifices to take a shot at achieving their dream. Their stories deserve to be told – they are true American role models."
John is continually invited to speak to business organizations, executive groups, national associations and colleges & universities. His topics include: Behind the Legends : Unique Traits of America's Business Icons and Succession and Estate Planning Strategies for Family Owned Businesses.
"Your interview was a joy and delight for me to do. Your program gives its listeners a refreshing insight into guests' values and philosophies that helped to shape their failures and successes. Thank you for allowing me to share a piece of my life with your listeners and I wish you continuing success."
