Miles connected with the audience from the get-go with a personal anecdote about a laptop gifted by a teacher, which his mom accused him of stealing because according to her ‘people like us didn’t get gifts like that.” He seamlessly navigated through key pillars of prosperity: resilience, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and social capital, which he believes are more than just skills.

Miles dispelled myths about legacy by sharing personal experiences, demonstrating that it’s less about money and more about “who we know and the mindset we adopt”. He concluded the talk by challenging the audience to rethink legacy and actively participate in shaping a brighter, richer future for the next generation.

Miles is no stranger to delivering impactful speeches. However, he is pleased and elated to add TEDx speaker to his growing list of accomplishments. When asked about his motivation for sharing lessons on When Poor Kids Think Rich, he explained: “I wanted to challenge the topic of legacy and reframe the minds of parents and educators. I grew up as that “poor kid” to a single mother in Houston, TX with no influences for wealth, entrepreneurship and business. Throughout my journey, I’ve discovered that true wealth isn’t about money. It is fostering a way of thinking within our future generations.” See his talk “When Poor Kids Think Rich” at https://youtu.be/vbAlQAY4QA8?si=3wIilx3r1FJDmtmZ

This speech is a potent reminder that our background does not define our future, and that wealth and prosperity are within our reach if we dare to think differently. For those who are keen to leave a valuable legacy for future generations, Miles’s TEDx talk is an essential watch. His message of resilience, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and social capital is not just applicable to the younger generation but also serves as a reminder for adults to keep these pillars in mind as they strive for success and leave their own legacy.

As Miles quotes, “Legacy is not about what we leave behind, but who we inspire to do better.” This powerful statement reminds everyone that actions and words have the potential to shape the minds and lives of other people.
