I am a capitalist. But what is that? It is a useless word without a definition. Here’s my meaning: I am a person who believes in creating opportunities, entrepreneurship, that a political operating system is more equitable to its consumers than any other form of government. I believe that companies have to be profitable to be sustained, that they have to pay their employees from those earnings, and those employees then pay their bills, their kids thru college, laugh, have wine.

GAME CHANGERS fueled by #ambition

“All organisations seek out highly talented people who ensure the (longer term) success of the company. The question is, how to define that relatively small group of identifiable people whose motivation and talent lead them to become and stay ‘Game Changers’.

However, these are the individuals that business leaders, across every industry, are desperately searching for. They are the individuals who ensure businesses do more than just survive in today’s fast paced digital economy; they often have the ability to ‘see around corners’ in ways that most of us cannot.” Nathan Ott of the Game Changers Index.®
