Legends of Success with John Resnick
Join John Resnick for exclusive and rare interviews with members of the prestigious Forbes 400, America's top CEO's and entertainment icons as they share their personal journey of overcoming obstacles and setbacks to make it to the top.
"People love to hear the story of the underdog that rises to the top." Through hard work, inventiveness, perseverance, and good old 'American Work Ethic' the guests of John Resnick's "Legends of Success" have made names for themselves and the companies they run. "Every story is unique but at the same time there are some common denominators." John talks to the people who have achieved the 'American Dream' and finds what makes each story it's own.
"Legends of Success" is a valuable resource to help the individual. John spends one hour a week with some of America's most successful businessmen and entrepreneurs. Using a one on one format to talk about their early influences that helped shape them, the risks they faced, and the hurdles they had to overcome, John shows us what makes and drives these individuals to succeed.
Having grown tired of only hearing the media's reporting of business scandals and greed, knowing these stories did not represent the real state of business in America, John Resnick began "Legends of Success."

Listen to those who have achieved the American Dream. As John says, "It's about time we celebrate the stories of successful business leaders, not the failures."
