This work offers a summary of the book "WINNING" by Jack Welch and Suzy Welch.

In Winning, J. Welch and S. Welch raise a question: "What does it take to win?" This is the sole question everyone in business should be focused on each day. When your business wins, there are many great flowon effects and benefits – people have the opportunity to grow, more jobs are created, more taxes are paid, shareholders get a return on their investment and the list goes on and on. Winning companies are literally the engine of a healthy economy, and the pinnacle of the free enterprise system.

In Winning, the authors encourage the readers to develop a personal business philosophy, and advise them on how to look at their company and their competition and how to build their company.

Pure and simple companies and people have to find a way to win dayin and dayout. There are no easy formulas that can be used, or any exotic or mysterious shortcuts involved. Winning can be brutally hard to achieve but when everything comes together and you win, great things happen. As Jack Welch puts it: "Business is a game, and winning that game is a total blast".

Bode Miller: Racing With Ideas

B.S. AS A WORLD and Olympic ski champion, Bode Miller got paid to endorse skis and apparel, which made him wealthy but not satisfied. “I’d been working with companies my whole career, contributing my know-how and on-the-hill experience in product development,” he says. “But after they got what they wanted, I was left with nothing.” He considered starting his own business (“the logistics didn’t work”), but decided to buy into Bomber Ski and sportswear maker Aztech Mountain. He’s also exchanged expertise for equity at bag maker Esperos. With Bomber, the plan is to give amateurs the hot skis he
