Each week I pick 5 key folk to follow on the web (and Twitter) based on a selected topic.
Success. It’s something for which we all aim. We read books, articles and listen to motivational speakers, usually only when we make the time.
If you’re looking for daily guidance or inspiration, follow and subscribe to RSS feeds for these key players:
- Chris Brogan (@chrisbrogan) works with Fortune 100 and 500 companies, but that doesn’t mean we can’t translate his oft-inspirational advice for small business folk. You’ll want to make reading his blog posts a daily ritual, for sure. Visit his site–>
- Guy Kawasaki (@guykawasaki) is the author of Enchantment (which I dubbed a must-buy last month). He’s the co-founder of Alltop.com, but, most notably, was the chief evangelist of Apple. Guy takes a no-holds barred approach to business success, and uses terms we understand to explain what works and what doesn’t. Visit his site–>
- Stephanie Calahan (@stephcalahan) focuses on organization as a foundation to success. Her aim is to combat wasted time and resources, inspiring us to take simple steps daily so we may reap more benefits from our work. Visit her site–>
- Scott Stratten (@unmarketing) is a major influencer on Twitter, but I’m willing to wager a good number of his followers aren’t taking his advice literally… And they should, because Scott’s approach is to break out of the “bubble” in which so many “experts” and businesses are trapped, shifting attention to true, human marketing techniques. But it’s not all about marketing. Follow Scott around the web and you’ll see what I mean. Visit his site–>
- John Jantsch (@ducttape) is a small biz marketing consultant. The term marketing tends to scare small business owners because, more often than not, it coincides with the word “expensive”. You can, however, learn quite a bit by following John and reading what he has to say. Although most of his work is not geared toward the tiniest of businesses, it’s simple enough to translate and relate. Visit his site–>
Of course, there are plenty of folk worthy of mention. My picks are based on current trends and my experience with their work. Know someone we all need to follow around? Share your thoughts in the comments box!
