The people you meet on my site are on the whole more competent than lucky. In that regard, we can learn from them. There is little to learn from someone who was simply born to success or from someone who rolled everything they owned on a “hard-eight” and won! If you are not a legacy, are not royalty, have no trust fund, don’t vacation in Vegas and your uncle’s first name is not “Senator”, then this new category might soon become your favorite.
This Winning People category will help us learn from the stories of unique individuals in hopes of understanding the many components of a successful life. Here, I will take philosopher Ayn Rand’s advice and profile the careers of producers, songwriters, composers, performers, educators, artists, painters and business owners to enhance our knowledge and embolden our courage.
Winning People will examine individuals who have manufactured their own bootstraps, installed them and also pulled them up… all within the proximity of both allies and competitors. Here in Winning People, we will hopefully engage the wisdom and insight of others, who are already winning the life we would like to have ourselves.
