Former Manchester United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson: Practice, Practice, Practice

In this 45-minute fireside chat, Sequoia Capital Chairman Sir Michael Moritz talks to former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who says that, just as in sports, you have to practice, practice, practice to be a top player in business.

Kristina Salen: "I Didn't Realize How Far I Could Push Myself."

This is a short one at just over a minute, but the insight from Kristina Salen, CFO of Etsy, is an important one to keep in mind no matter where life takes you. As a full-time student at Columbia Business School with a full-time job—and being pregnant her last year on top of that!—Salen said she learned how far she could push herself, juggling so many things, and that gave her tremendous confidence. But perhaps even more importantly, it taught her to empathize with the struggles of others—something we all should try to do in business and life.

Stick to SIMPLE Ideas – Steve Wynn

Steve Wynn is an American business powerhouse known for spearheading the construction and operation of several historic luxury casinos and hotels. He's worth roughly $2.4 billion, so it appears that he knows what he's doing. And what's his business philosophy? Keep it simple, stupid.
