A personal message from Steven Sonsino
When Rami Makhzoumi died at the age of 33, his dream of an institute to help the leaders of the future died too.
My wife Jacqueline Moore and I would have been Rami’s partners in that amazing legacy project. We’ll tell you about that another time. It’s very relevant to any business owner building a legacy.
A LIKE-MINDED COMMUNITY OF CEOS AND ENTREPRENEURS
So we reached out to other inspiring CEOs – including Saurabh Srivastava, the former Chairman of Computer Associates in India, and Sam Pitroda in Chicago (pictured here).
And we founded a completely new institute – the Legacy Institute.
The Legacy Institute is a like-minded community of CEOs and business owners who can help you to change the world and to make history.
We help CEOs and business owners to build a living, enduring legacy that makes a massive impact.
OBSESSED WITH LEGACY BUILDING
With such a group of experienced CEOs leading the Institute it’s no surprise we’ve become obsessed with legacy and legacy building. We are committed to helping other CEOs and business owners to achieve what Rami could not: a living, enduring, high-impact legacy.
So here’s the question: how can we help you build your legacy?
YOUR ENDURING LEGACY
For the past five years we’ve been researching a new book What’s Your Legacy?
We’ve interviewed hundreds of CEOs – from all over the world – men and women who want to craft an enduring legacy.
And what their dreams have taught us is priceless.
YOU WANT YOUR LIVING LEGACY TO BE ENDURING AND TO HAVE MASSIVE IMPACT
Above all, there are two things you probably want your legacy to be.
You want your legacy to be enduring – for generations to come.
And you want your legacy to have massive impact. Saurabh Srivastava calls this disproportionate impact.
To these inspirational CEOs, legacy is beyond charitable giving or ‘impact investing’ and it’s beyond philanthropy.
To use one of Rami Makhzoumi’s favourite phrases, this is thinking big.
ARE YOU READY TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
Rami Makhzoumi always ended our phone calls with the words ‘change the world’. It was a joke between us. Except that it wasn’t really a joke.
Rami knew that building his enduring legacy was the biggest leadership challenge of his lifetime. Sadly he was never able to see his legacy come to fruition.
WHAT ARE YOU KNOWN FOR?
At a personal level, you’re already hugely successful. You’re known for that.
But what do you want to be known for?
What’s your legacy?
TELL US ABOUT YOUR LEGACY DREAM
We’ve finished our book and it’s ready for publication. But we’d love to hear your story. What’s your legacy?
If you want to discuss your ideas for your enduring legacy, and how you can make it a reality, let’s talk. It would be a privilege to hear your story so far.
