Which business leaders, writers or gurus have most influenced you and why?
I'd have to try and contain myself here, because there are quite a few that I could gush about all day. At the top of this list would have to be Tim Ferris who is a business leader, writer and guru on many topics rolled into one.
What I love about him is his ability to do great on all areas (not just in business) by applying a very unique and effective thought process to learning: e.g.
- Kickboxing champing
- Salsa Dancing Champion
- Hacked a effect method of dieting
- As well as cooking
- Language learning hacking
All his teachings are a lazy mans way to getting a great result which is in line with my own values :).
I'm just in awe in his ability to just learn and do so many different things (something I tend to love to do). Being able to define yourself by the speed with which you learn not about what you know. I guess multitalented is the word?
I'm working my way through all his books and thoroughly enjoying every minute of it, including his writing style.
Other business leaders and influencers include: Seth Godin, Noah Kegan, Sheryl Sandberg and of course all you guys here at SavvySME :)! Awwww.
Love to hear your inspirations too Neil!
