Resurrecting a failing business takes guts, vision and perseverance. The September 2011 issue of SUCCESS magazine contains a Special Report featuring seven business comebacks that will inspire you.
The cover story features Grammy Award-winning musician and favorite son of New Orleans Harry Connick Jr. He owes much of who he is to his beloved hometown, and now he's returning the favor. Read all about how the successful entertainer is giving back to help restore and revitalize the Crescent City.
Keeping with the Comebacks theme, "Engineering a Comeback" tells the story of Alan Mulally. How he led Ford to avoid bankruptcy and return to profitability has much to do with who he is, and is not. In "Oy Vey!" we asked Rabbi Shmuley Boteach about mental resilience and got a lesson in what's fundamentally wrong with Americans today. (Don't worry; we're fixable!) Plus, a feature on legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey recounts how he's best-known for his optimism, humor and delivering "the heartbeats behind the headlines."
The issue also includes a one-on-one with M*A*S*H actor Wayne Rogers on being a business renegade, as well as profiles of 24-Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov, civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks, and baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield. And much more!
The SUCCESS CD inserted in each magazine features ideas that might help position you for a comeback. Publisher Darren Hardy interviews author Mel Robbins, who offers her very best ideas for discovering a more powerful you, and Rabbi Shmuley, who explains that it all comes down to one word that starts with the letter "C." Also, leadership expert John C. Maxwell tells us the secret to great leadership is to be impressed by everything around us.
