New Book: Live Your Legacy Now

Posted on November 16, 2009


I am excited to let you know that my new book, Live Your Legacy Now!: Ten Simple Steps to Find Your Passion and Change the World is now available through and Barnes and Noble online ( After fifteen years of success in teaching youth to become social activists through Champions of Caring, I realized it was time to share these lessons with people of all ages.

In this newsletter, you will find information about the book, my upcoming speeches and workshops, and how you can support Champions of Caring by buying books this holiday season. In the next months, I’ll be sharing more information about my new endeavor, Embrace Your Legacy, which provides speeches, workshops, and consulting services that teach individuals to become leaders for social change and create cultures of caring in their home, community, and workplace.

As 2009 comes to a close, I challenge each of you to think about living your own legacy, and finding ways to create meaning in your life while giving back to others. In the spirit of the holidays, I urge you to create family traditions that involve service. Let’s work together to make our world a better place.

Warm regards,


About the Book

In a world in which racism, violence, illness, and poverty seem to overwhelm us so that we often close our eyes-and our hearts-to the suffering around us, we may not believe we have the power to change things. As Barbara Greenspan Shaiman shows in Live Your Legacy Now! this simply isn’t so. This part memoir and part how-to guide provides the tools and strategies to help you  create meaningful change in your own life as well as in the lives of others.

The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Shaiman shares stories from her family history and over thirty years of her own life experience as an educator, business woman, and social entrepreneur to inspire and guide you to create a vision and plan for initiating a personal legacy. Shaiman details her effective ten-step approach by helping you to:

* Identify your core values, interests, and skills
* Reflect on how you can use these assets to create meaningful projects that make a difference locally or globally
* Share these experiences with family, colleagues, and friends to create cultures of caring at home, at work, and in your community

Live Your Legacy Now! provides a simple formula to help people of all ages and backgrounds to live a richer, more meaningful life by creating projects for personal growth and social change.

[Ed note: PHENND has worked with and supported Champions of Caring for years and we wish Barbara all the best with this book launch!]
