About Building A Dream
Every Child Deserves a Bike!
Building A Dream is 100% about putting children on bicycles and is a service of Be Legendary. If you put a child on a bike before the age of 12, they are 65% less likely to be obese as an adult. We could change healthcare in a single generation if we could simply get kids to ride bikes. But there are many children who will never own a bike due to financial challenges.
Be Legendary has put tens of thousands of children on bicycles through our programs over the last 15 years. It is not enough. We need to be able to say hundreds of thousands
Be Legendary Company Summary:
We are a true social enterprise that ties philanthropy with every service we offer. Giving back to the community cannot be separated from what we do or our service is not possible. We have intentionally stayed a for profit company to show that companies can be for-profit, for purpose at the same time. Being a social enterprise means we can continue impacting the world and share our best without requiring outside funding.
Share Your Umbrella
You have a gift. To share that gift you must offer your gift, sometimes taking a large risk that you may be rejected. Commit to sharing your umbrella at every opportunity.
Have an appreciative mentality and be grateful for all the wealth we have in our lives.
When given a choice, there is no need for thought:
Follow in the footsteps of true legendary people and be really awesome at being humble.
Find Your Pennies
We can all make a difference. Most of the time, the difference will have little ‘value’, like pennies. Every action, no matter the value, adds up.
Be a Learner
Have the mindset of a learner means continual, life-long growth. Learn from mistakes.
We began as Repario – Latin meaning to ‘rediscover or find again’, in 2003. And for 3 years before that, as The Carter Group.
Since that time, we have been working on helping each person rediscover the very best of who they are.
We have focused upon corporate America because, frankly, that is where the money is! We have been using ‘team building’ events and training as an experiment lab. Thank you corporate America!
In 2010, we changed our name go Be Legendary and focused on sharing our research about legendary people and creating legendary teams.
We have facilitated our events in front of over 1,000,000 people and MANY other statistics that are really only for credibility. To be frank, we know our stuff and have tested our Roadmap against Fortune 10 companies and their executive teams. The research holds up. You know why? Because each one of us is human with the same needs, fear and educational system as our backbone.
In the meantime, our Founder James Carter, has written books with Steven Covey, Ken Blanchard, Deepak Chopra and Brian Tracy. But that is blatant credibility-building. Let’s get back to what is REALLY important.
In truth, we work in corporations with MUCH greater effectiveness due directly to our research and experimentation. Corporate America has a great deal of influence and we want to make that influence incredibly positive, wherever we can and whenever we can.
That being said, we need to impact EVERY generation to truly change the world and create the incredible future we see. Corporate America can help us achieve that! There are GREAT people in corporations who see the potential future we do and want to help make that a reality. In many ways, they already are!
So, let’s not jump on the “corporations are evil’ bandwagon. Let’s work with the ones that are positively impacting the world and pressure the rest into becoming AWESOME corporate citizens.
This world is not only possible, it is INEVITABLE. It WILL occur. What role will YOU play in making that a reality?
I hope we meet and are able to help you achieve your own version of ‘Legendary’.
