Ted Leonsis - The Business Of Happiness @ Sixth and I Historic Synagogue

Feb 24 2010 7:00 pm
Feb 24 2010 8:00 pm

After surviving an emergency plane landing at age 28, Leonsis (now the owner of the Washington Capitals), already a successful entrepreneur, realized he wasn’t happy. Applying his analytical skills to the question of personal fulfillment, he studied satisfaction in fellow business executives, successful entertainers, and professional athletes, as well as typical Americans.

Description


According to Albert Schweitzer, "Happiness is the key to success." Here, Leonsis, a business, sports, and media mogul, proves Schweitzer's point, explaining that success may or may not make one happy, but happiness will almost always make one more successful.
