The Book

How the pursuit of a meaningful life leads to creating Legacies.
And how you can get started on yours.

For thousands of years philosophers have told us how to be happy. Now Robb Lucy confirms the formula is at our fingertips: Don’t leave your Legacy. LIVE your Legacies!

You don’t have to be rich or famous (or dead) to leave a Legacy. And they aren’t all about money.

Robb will show you the joy and benefit of creating your Legacies when you’re young and healthy.


After looking at Legacy and Time, Ego, Religion, Sex, Money… Robb shows how to create Legacies with your values and signature strengths. You’ll find yourself saying “Wow. That gives me an idea!”

With an easy writing style, and many stories, Robb shows how to create Legacies tiny to large, Legacies that will put a smile on your face, enhance lives now, and will continue to positively affect others when you say goodbye. ‘Happy’ isn’t leaving a Legacy; it’s LIVING your Legacies!

You’ll discover:

  • how to create the ultimate Legacy for your family.
  • the only question you need to gather the stories of a special loved one.
  • how to create multiple Legacies using your own values, talents, skills and resources.
  • stories of simple and grand Legacies that will inspire and stir your imagination.

No, Legacies aren’t for dead people. They’re for those of us who want to lead rich, happy, connected and meaningful lives – Now!

This book is your start.

I couldn’t believe how it caught my interest. You explained how beneficial our Legacies would be to future generations and how to get started. It’s easy to read with a humorous touch, great stories, and a sense of urgency. A terrific book.

The Author

Meet the man they call ‘The Legacy Guy’.
He’s got sharing in his DNA.

Robb Lucy is a natural communicator – a writer, producer, and connector. He was a journalist with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation before forming his own company, producing mixed media for corporations and governments around the world.

Robb spent 25 years on the local, national, and international boards of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and continues to help develop non-profi ts in literacy, sports history, and cancer awareness.

Robb has always found the question, “What will your Legacy be?” an intriguing one. He now knows his Legacies will be about happiness and purpose… and will continue to be until those annoying water buffalo take him away.

Robb Lucy has invented a discipline too often left to guys with tall hats, beards, or preachy voices. His book contains many of his notable qualities: explosive brilliance, wit, grace, originality and constant surprises.

Robb’s presentation was uplifting, funny, with a great use of storytelling. What Robb teaches is complex, but he makes it simple and do-able. Rather than tax benefits and financial planning, Robb taps into the personal motivation that inspires a variety of legacies.
