The July 2011 issue of SUCCESS magazine celebrates the freedom of entrepreneurs and individual achievers to thrive in this era of unprecedented change!
The cover story features three-time Oscar-nominated actor and philanthropist, Leonardo DiCaprio. His rags-to-riches life story has all the elements of a movie, and his desire to be known as "someone who stood for something" is being fulfilled via hard work, overcoming adversity—and a little bit of luck.
In "Lessons from Sports," Roger Brooks talks about how, even as a youth, soccer legend Pelé knew what was necessary to be extraordinary, and how he now shares that knowledge with children. Correspondent Alice Daniel explains how Jim Henson's children built a cutting-edge entertainment business while honoring the late Muppet-maker's creative legacy. Plus, read a Q&A with What Not to Wear's Clinton Kelly, and profiles of actor Gary Sinise and legendary social reformer, author and industrialist Samuel Smiles.
The issue also includes a "Forecast for Your Startup" with tips on how to start and build a business while maintaining your life, as well as a piece on how to establish your brand with Facebook, and much more!
The SUCCESS CD inserted in each magazine features two examples of achievers who have discovered power in their freedom to create great things and who are using change to lead the way. Publisher Darren Hardy interviews entrepreneurs David Heinemeier Hansson, who talks about how he and his business partner reinvented what it means to be an entrepreneur, and Chris Guillebeau, who shares the strategies you will need to challenge the status quo. Also, leadership expert John C. Maxwell talks about how he learned tough lessons and used them to his advantage as a leader.
