Who do you respect as a business influencer?

With the growth of social media over the last few years, everyone has become an expert. I have found myself at times claiming as much as well. But when it comes down to it, there are people that we respect in the industry as someone that can influence us in decisions that we make in our business.

Today I want to explore who you feel is an influencer in your business. Here are a few ideas to get the juices flowing:

  • Industry Consultant
  • Industry Peer
  • Spouse
  • Business Partner
  • Author
  • Parent (my dad is a constant source of knowledge for me)

I would love to do an informal survey. Name specific names if you want. Who do you feel influences you in your business? Post your influences in the comments. Give them props. Tell them WHY the influence you and give them a great big thanks.

Maybe you will be named as an influencer by someone else. How amazing would that be?

    This is a great question, the print owners participating on the printownerslist.com . Their knowledge, experience and willingness to share have proved to be invaluable for me and my business. I have created quite a few friends from this list and it never ceases to amaze me all the solutions and relevant conversations I acquire from this list of friends.

    Mr. Joe,
    I would say the market influences our business decision. This will boil down to my customers who give me direction on which way to go based on their need. My respect as a business influencer goes out to my customers. Developying an excellent customer relation is the key to the success of any business.
