About The Book

With Come to Win, Venus Williams, the multiple Grand Slam tennis champion and entrepreneur, along with an esteemed group of business leaders, politicians, and acclaimed artists, serves up a book of wisdom that shows how to turn a competitive spirit and athletic background into success off the playing field.

Combining talent, drive, and hard work, Venus Williams has mastered the game of tennis. How will that drive serve her off the court in her post-tennis career? For inspiration, Venus turned to nearly fifty business leaders, politicians, doctors, and artists, all of whom previously played competitive sports and who are now at the top of their professions, and asked them the essential questions: What principles that inspired you toward success as an athlete are helpful in life? In business?

Here an A-list group of visionaries, including eBay’s former CEO Meg Whitman, Nike’s co-founder Philip Knight, stateswoman Condoleezza Rice, entrepreneur and former NBA player Earvin “Magic” Johnson, and designer Vera Wang, respond with a useful array of tips woven through anecdotes from their athletic past that have been instrumental in their post–sports life success. Whether it’s visualizing a course of action before it happens, turning losses into learning tools, figuring out who best plays what position in a team environment, or remembering that there is no substitute for preparation, the advice in Come to Win is knowledge every manager and aspiring professional will want to read. It’s also an indispensable tool for parents and coaches looking to build confidence and discipline in their children.

Venus also reflects on what she has learned from her own coaches, including her father and mother, and how their wisdom contributes to her own remarkable achievements, from her history-making tennis career to the launch of her own businessesV-Starr Interiors, an interior design firm, and EleVen, an athletic clothing line. “

I think the Venus looks great on the cover of the book!  Of course, I’m going to support her by purchasing the book because I find both Venus and Serena two very interesting people.  I like to read about how they eat, train, how they keep their skin pretty and how they have fun.  I’m all over this book!  I can’t wait to give it a read.

Venus also has a clothing line out called “Eleven” which is a line of affordable fitness apparel.  Her clothing used to be sold at Steve & Barry’s, but they went out of business.  Not sure where to buy from now…I contacted the website so let’s see if they’ll get back to me on it.
