TV show host, actress, producer, business woman, philanthropist, publisher, chairman of Oprah Winfrey Network, spiritual leader… it is not a full list of accomplishments of the most powerful media personality in the world – Oprah Winfrey. Her name denotes a business phenomenon, “Oprah Effect”, when her TV show has helped many businesses to raise their profit and many people to launch their TV careers. With her books, such as The Path Made Clear, Oprah inspires ordinary people to pursue their goals and live happier. Here we are going to have a look at what qualities help Oprah to enjoy such an overwhelming success and what can be learned from her success story.

Like a modern Renaissance man, it is difficult to choose a domain where Michael Bloomberg has not tried his hand at. A banker, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, billionaire, politician, activist, media mogul, avid pilot… and it is not a full list of accomplishments of just one single person.

His quick thinking and unbelievably rigorous work ethic have let him foresee how accurate early information from first hands can become a valuable asset in our information age and construct a whole eco-system around this idea. Here we will have a look at how a man who was made redundant at his well-paid job at 40 years old, managed to change the whole financial world, and even win the elections for the mayor of New York.
“Life is too short to spend your time avoiding failure,”
