I'm looking for a name for a website about leadership, motivation, personal development, productivity etc. I need a word meaning "clever/skillful/hardworking and successful person". Hotshot seems fine according to dictionaries, but it looks like the meaning is somewhat negative. In Cambridge Dictionary the meaning is just "someone who is skillful and successful at something". But in THEFREEDICTIONARY:
- A person of impressive skill and daring, especially one who is highly successful and self-assured.
- An important person or expert, esp when showy
- Highly successful and aggressive: a hotshot sales manager.
- Displaying skill flamboyantly: a hotshot ballplayer.
- An impressively successful or skillful and often vain person.
Is 'hotshot' used mainly in a negative meaning? Is it ok to use it in my context?
Edit: can people like Tony Robbins, Robin Sharma, Brené Brown, Michael Hyatt be called hotshots? I mean it in a 100% positive way: clever/skillful/hardworking and very successful. No negative connotations.
Thank you in advance.
