“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.” ---Roy T. Bennett

Wow! Do you have any idea how happy I am that you are reading this—right now? At this very moment?

It really does give me chills just thinking about the fact that out of the millions of websites in cyberspace, somehow you stumbled onto mine. And you know what? Not to sound too cheesy or anything but I definitely do not think it was a coincidence.

That said, I’ve done my research. I know that folks tend to spend less than three minutes on a site before moving onto something else, so I’ll make this as quick and painless as possible.

Legitimate Matters is my television talk show (based in NYC). Yes, I know. There are tons of television programs out here too, but just hear me out because I really do believe that this mission of mine is extra-special.

Just what is my show’s mission? It’s to connect with you—and others—so that, together, we can find viable solutions to common (and not-so-common) challenges in our daily lives. Because let’s face it—our health, our relationships, our goals, ambitions and everything else that affects us would do nothing short of THRIVE if we weren’t so boggled down with problems, fears, setbacks, dramas and distractions.

Not only that but if we’re not careful, all the news, social media updates and constant information we get via calls and texts will end up overwhelming us to the point that we won’t be able to come up with solid plans, bright ideas and silver linings to our situations. We’ll end up stagnant. Stuck! Unable to live out our best lives. (How tragic would that be?!)

That’s why I think it’s fate that you’re here. Whether you’re on your lunch break, you’re relaxing on the couch or this is the last thing that you read before turning in for the night, I want to extend a very personal and heartfelt welcome.

Please take out just a couple of more moments to peruse my site, watch an episode or two of my show and—this is the most important part— share your thoughts in the comments section (underneath each episode). Remember, my mission only works if you’re providing your insights, wisdom and good energy to it.

Oh, I almost forgot! Just one more thing. If after you’ve checked out some shows, you feel that there is a topic—or 2 or 10—that you think my team and I should explore, don’t hesitate to let us know. Trust me, we are all ears. Not only that, but if you aren’t too shy, you live in the greater New York City area and you’d like to come on as a guest, we’re totally open to exploring that idea too!

Now do you see why I’m so excited to connect with you?

So, really—what are you waiting for?

Watch an episode.

Share your thoughts—good, bad or indifferent (I can handle it!).

Hop on over to my YouTube page and hit that “subscribe” button.

Or, if you’ve got an idea that you need a promotional video or commercial for, I can probably help you out with that too!

No doubt about it, my friend. This is the day when your life could TOTALLY CHANGE in the best way possible! I really do believe that.

So, in the wise words of Mr. Bennett (the author of that quote up top)—please choose wisely.

Choose to introduce yourself so that we can make life better—for ourselves and others!
