I had the privilege of joining Bill in person during one of the most interesting interview series he’s ever recorded on Morning in America. A few weeks ago, Bill sat down with Steve Wynn, Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts – arguably some of the most exquisite, five-star hotels in Las Vegas, and likely the world. Wynn is an icon of American business and the unofficial king of Las Vegas. His history with the town (and Vegas icons like Frank Sinatra) is storied, and through his massive investments – his first big splash was with the Mirage and most recently with the Wynn and Encore – he gave new life to a seedy, down-and-out gambling town. He is visionary who transformed lowly gambling parlors into transformational resort experiences.

For the first part of the interview series, Bill conversed with Wynn about the nature of work and the employer-employee relationship. Among Wynn’s most impressive accomplishments with his resorts is the unparalleled reputation of his staff and service. It’s widely known in Las Vegas that Wynn Resorts are the best places on the strip to work. His workers love working for him and that loyalty and admiration is passed on to how they treat their customers. In the first part of the interview with Bill, Wynn discusses his unique ways to inspire and motivate his employees.

Wynn is also an outspoken critic of Obamacare and the way that Pres. Obama has handled the U.S. economy. In the later part of this interview, Wynn explains what the proper role of government should be in our lives and the workforce. He emphasizes what all business owners know: that the economy functions better when the government is restrained and removes its clumsy fingers from the gears of the private sector.
