Winner Magazine is an editorial series that features exclusive Q &A interviews with notable professionals. This online editorial series serves to inform readers about industry-specific secrets to success, shared by individuals that have achieved significant accomplishments in their fields (e.g. outstanding contribution to R&D/ revenue for known companies, profound social influence, Wikipedia reference, etc).

Based on Harvard Business School's case study method of teaching effective leadership, Winner Magazine provides real-life examples of proven professionals in a wide range of fields. Sometimes you need to examine a business in a completely different sector to draw the parallels that are a staple for growth in your domain.

Examples of our features include Amir Nathoo, the multi-billion dollar founder and CEO of Outschool, and Sabrina Sapal, who has achieved international fame with 10s of millions of YouTube views and celebrity collaborations, while simultaneously managing to prioritize education and earn her Master's degree. Other examples of features are Matt Freedman (lead developer of Grand Theft Auto V, a game which generated over six billion dollars in revenue) and Chanelle Fleming, who founded a now award-winning skin care care clinic at only 22 years of age! Our features range to include accomplished realtors and even contractors, each of whom have dispensed well-appreciated wisdom on how they earned top ranks in their respective fields.

  • Benefits

    Benefits of Q&A features are inherent for our readers, given the mentorship and recommendation aspects of the Winner Magazine publication; at the same time, the opportunities that are provided for our featured contributors cannot be understated.

    Stemming from Dr Carol Dweck’s research on the merits of acknowledging persistent and deliberate efforts above end-point accolades, our features get a chance to be celebrated for the trials, triumphs, and tedious dedication to quality service that have earned them their shining signifiers of elite performance. Q&A features are exclusively offered to professionals, business leaders, startup leaders, and youth that have been nominated or selected by means of scrutinous review (for meeting distinguishing benchmarks in fulfillment of their goals); accepting feature representation to share expertise further accentuates each featured individual's ability and willingness to engage their community with confidence in their personal/team vision. As we are grateful to our feature members for sharing their insights, so too have may of our features expressed appreciation for the facilitation of a platform to connect with potential clients, employers, or adminissions officials in their most human and compelling voice
