Watching former President Bill Clinton in action is like getting a master class in how to communicate and connect with people you barely know, Scott Eblin writes. Clinton always knows his stuff, but he takes pains to frame his ideas in simple, easy-to-remember ways. "When leaders can boil down their themes to memorable takeaways, they connect with people," Eblin explains. EblinGroup.com/Next Level Blog (11/13)

Under Armour CEO talks about the early days
The desire to get an edge over the competition during his days as a football player gave Kevin Plank the idea for Under Armour, which has grown into a billion-dollar brand. In this interview, Plank discusses how he financed the business, produced the initial batch of shirts and came up with the company's name. Growing the business has included "all sorts of ups and downs, but we have learned at every stop and we have used those lessons to make ourselves better," he said.
