Win Win – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans
People often compare business strategy to combat, and sports. Â
In sports, we grow up learning itâ€™s the game that counts – winning isnâ€™t everything. Which is true, unless youâ€™ve got money on the game.Â
Itâ€™s not always legal to bet on the outcome of games. But Zach Dixon has found a way.
Zach is the co-founder of Players Lounge – a real and virtual place where you can bet on the outcome of video and computer games.
Brian LevyÂ is not concerned with winning. As a matter of fact heâ€™s focused on not winning. Which is not the same as losing.
The win-win outcome is one of the principles of a Japanese martial art called Aikido. Brian Levy is the Director and chief instructor at NOLA Aikido in Mid City.
Brian Levy and Zach Dixon are two New Orleanians with two very different takes on winning and business.
