Time to Win

What started as a brief email, Time to Win has developed into a thought-provoking newsletter that touches on the principles of sales, management and business leadership. When it hits teammates’ inboxes early Monday morning as they sip their coffee and prep for the week, it inspires them with stories, advice, and tasks of how they can win today and every day moving forward — and we hope it does the same for you. Winning at GKB isn’t about our success, it’s about our advertising partners, fans and teammates achieving success.
