Mercer 8560

HarperCollins Publishers

Venus Williams asked leaders like Bill Clinton, Denzel Washington, Condoleezza Rice and Meg Whitman to look back on their days as athletes.

Sports can be essential to making you a team player who works well with others, but whoever thought that shooting some hoops or dabbling in competitive sports could lead you to become the CEO of your own company or president of the U.S.? In her new book Come to Win, tennis star Venus Williams asked leaders like Bill Clinton, Denzel Washington, Condoleezza Rice and Meg Whitman to look back on their days as athletes. In a collection of essays, these top business leaders and politicians find that some of the same lessons they learned during soccer or football practice led to their successes today. Venus Williams sits down with Patt to talk about how her love of tennis contributed to her personal and professional achievements.

*Williams will be signing “Come to Win” at the Border’s in Torrance today at 5:00 p.m.
