    Author and musician Peter Buffet talks to the 10! Show about the importance of following your passion. (Published Monday, May 24, 2010)

    Imagine your father is one of the richest men in the world.

    Now imagine that you won’t be inheriting his wealth. Would you live your life as if bitter and wronged? Or would you live your life like Peter Buffett?

    Peter Buffett, son of one of the world’s richest men, Warren Buffett, says that his only real inheritance from his parents is this philosophy: Forge your own path in life. Peter Buffett did just that.

    The Emmy award-winning composer, philanthropist and author Peter Buffett is coming to World Café Live Monday April 19 to entertain, to share his secrets to a well-lived life, and to raise money for music education for Philadelphia children.

    In  “Life Is What You Make It: A Concert and Conversation,” Peter Buffett will perform songs from his album releases while intermittently telling stories about his unique upbringing, his passion for life and his belief that nobody’s life is predetermined—you can make it what you will.

    Buffett obviously inherited his father’s philanthropic gene, as his live piano performance, accompanied by cello, will be given to benefit LiveConnections.org-- World Café’s non-profit that creates innovative programs for children and special needs populations.

    Don’t miss the opportunity to simultaneously be inspired and contribute to the inspiration of children. Get your tickets online at www.tickets.worldcafelive.com or call the box office at 215.222.1400.

    Doors open 6 p.m. on April 19 for the “Concert and Conversation,”  which starts at  7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $10 for students.

    Peter Buffett’s book “Life is What You Make It” comes out April 27.
