Did Shakespeare know our Power Players? It’s a temporal impossibility, but his writings suggest that he was aware of what makes them tick. (“There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.” —Julius Caesar). That’s all about risk taking, and in this issue of Inside Memphis Business, you’ll find nobody who is risk averse.

The Power Players mentioned here are among the best at what they do in their respective fields. (“To business that we love we rise betime, And go to’t with delight.” —Antony and Cleopatra). The categories range from Architecture to Staffing and encompass people and endeavors that make Memphis exceptional.
