Leon Logothetis is a global adventurer, motivational speaker & philanthropist. It wasn’t always that way.
Leon Logothetis used to be a broker in the city of London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed. He gave it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the inspirational movie The Motorcycle Diaries.
You can see the results of this life change on his current show, The Kindness Diaries, which is streaming on Netflix now!
Inspired himself by the greats like Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Michael Jordan, and Mother Teresa – Leon shares his insights with me on a Facebook Live interview (originally broadcast on March 7, 2017 on Facebook.com/MizMelizLA) answering audience questions and telling us all about his latest adventures!

Help me welcome Cowboy Carew Papritz, author of The Legacy Letters on Tinsel Town Live https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime
Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz Presents:
Wednesday, December 21, 2017, 6:00 pm Pacific Time
Carew is passionate about living the central message of his inspirational book, The Legacy Letters, by living life to the fullest. As a result, he’s done book signings on top of volcanoes, on horseback at Barnes & Noble, on whistle-stop book tours on Amtrak, while river rafting, on top of the Space Needle, outside The Today Show, and next to Niagara Falls!
Cowboy Carew, as he likes to be called, has created such national events as “The Great Legacy Letters Book Balloon Launch” in which kids sent aloft miniature versions of my book by balloon and then tracked how far they traveled. The event also helped such charities as The Make-a-Wish Foundation, Reading is Fundamental, and the Military Mama Network by creating a world record!
With his background of working on feature films in Hollywood, Papritz has created a number of YouTube videos series that help promote kids to read more. One series called, “I love to read and . . .” has him reading The Legacy Letters while actually doing various activities such as skiing over a cliff, riding a horse, walking up to a castle, and much more! He loves a good adventure!
In the spirit of the book, Carew has done TV and radio interviews that include such topics as, “How to write the Perfect Love Letter for Valentine’s Day,” “How to Get Your ‘i-Kid’ Back to the Holiday Table,” “How to Create the Perfect Gap Year,” “How the Olympic Games Made Me an Award-Winning Author,” “How to Reconnect with Family in This Technology-Drenched World,” and the incredibly cute, “How to Write the Perfect Letter to Santa Claus!”
“If I get to walk my talk, live my book, and inspire people to do the same—while being outdoors—then I’m a happy man!” ~Carew Papritz
Cowboy Carew Papritz really loves sharing with the world the inspirational stories that people have revealed to him about their lives from their reading “The Legacy Letters.” H finds their stories to be moving, heart breaking, fantastical, and soul humbling. He also loves talking about how kids can be inspired to read more by making reading seem more cool and exciting with his book adventures.
Carew had this idea when we first planned doing an interview together…he wrote on my form:
“A suggestion: How about doing a special video segment where we walk the streets of Hollywood, Sunset Blvd area, UCLA, and/or other areas while talking about my transition from UCLA Film School, working on features, music videos, and commercials to then becoming a working cowboy in Arizona while writing a multi-award winning book? Might be a fascinating segment. Let me know what you think?”
I was wowed by this idea! Carew seemed to have an insight about the direction I wanted to go with my interviews. So, we will be walking and talking on my first interview in a new series: Inspiring Adventures with Miz Meliz. Watch for it in late February 2017.
Thank you to everyone who allowed me to interview them on Tinsel Town Live this year. It really is my very own passion project. I love doing it and I am looking forward to seeing how it will grow and flourish in 2017 as part of A Year in Bloom! with love and gratitude, Melissa @MizMeliz
I was so looking forward to meeting this fascinating and inspiring man! Our values are aligned and I always find it remarkable when someone has an awakening at a young age. Any age younger than me is young, okay! We all have the propensity to learn these lessons if we pay attention. I believe that Lou is an inspiration because he listened. He reacted. He acted. Look at him now!
“I do yoga, read, and travel. This past 18 months I’ve been to 3 countries on travel retreats that focus on volunteering and adventure.I’m currently working on finishing up my book project. It tells the story of my personal transformation and how I quit my 9-5 to pursue my passion. I’m also very passionate about meditation and working on creating ways to help people in their practice and promote it’s benefits.”
