CAPE CORAL, FL, May 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Legacy Education Alliance, Inc. (OTCQB: LEAI), has announced progress on its planned partnership with Cris Carter, Pro Football Hall of Fame 2013.
Barry Kostiner, Chairman and CEO of Legacy Education, remarked, “We are delighted to announce the progress on our “Smart Brother” branded marketing partnership with Cris Carter. We believe that his passion and personal story is building the foundation of Legacy Education’s future, bringing us beyond entrepreneurial education to using our live event and mentoring operations to give underserved youth a path to financial success and achievement of life goals. Additionally, we are working towards partnering with Alicia Hanf on providing education products and services for military personnel. Alicia’s passion and talents are also expected to be a significant contribution to building out the implementation of our vision.”
Cris Carter commented, “As I have entered into the business phase of my career, I have been offered several opportunities to profit from my experience and reputation. My personal desire is to give back to youth. We have created Apex Sports as an education platform to reach youth who desire guidance on a sports career path. By working with Legacy Education, we are seeking to inspire young people on the importance of going beyond sports to focus on basic education and achieve the solid foundation needed to facilitate a career and family stability. Even the rare students who do succeed in sports need to have the culture and support system to acquire skills that allow them to succeed in life after their sports career reaches its natural conclusion. I look forward to working with Legacy Education and our team to partner with non-profit organizations, and bring hope to those who have lost hope, and a path to success for those who are struggling.”
Barry Kostiner continued, “Under the leadership of Andrew McDonald, Tim Chaffin and his daughter Whitney Chaffin, Legacy Education is seeking to restructure and rebuild the real estate and trading education business previously used to serve the Rich Dad, Poor Dad brand. We believe that Legacy Education, with over $800 mm in revenue previously associated with Robert Kiyosaki and real estate education, can be the engine to continue to serve the market seeking entrepreneurial education and mentoring, while leveraging its infrastructure and experience to deliver on inspiring live events and mentoring for youth in underserved communities. We believe in pairing cutting edge technology with personal mentoring and guidance, as buying a book online is very different from pursuing a university degree, launching a career and transforming a community. As part of our technology and awareness initiative, we expect to launch an automated social media campaign focused on educating LEAI investors and customers on our renewed vision and mission.”
Legacy Education has released a new presentation explaining its planned partnership with Cris Carter, as well as additional details on the strategic vision and implementation.

Such securities will not be and have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
