How to Create Your Influential Team


What does an Influential Team look like?

As you probably know, my work and the writings of this blog are all about closing the gap between the world’s best influencers and entrepreneurial leaders.

And, there has been one key element that I have yet to share with you - one thing that the best influencers have that entrepreneurial leaders don’t know about and struggle finding.

I’ve regularly talked about how to be influential, you need to observe your mark to find your influential hooks. I’ve even created an Influential Profiling Tool to help you with your observations. The idea behind the tool was sparked from my interviews with CIA operatives.

When an agent is given the mission to turn an asset, they spend weeks, even months, just observing the mark and building a dossier on them - their likes, dislikes, the people they interact with, their weekly habits, the types of clothes they wear, … you name it.

The Origin Story of Your Influential Superhero

The power to sway someone’s decisions is an exciting notion. On opening night of Avengers: Age of Ultron, I had dinner with the former Chief Marketing Officer of Marvel Studios. We regularly get together to catch up, talk about our businesses, geek out over the Marvel universe, and, as per usual, I try to get

Conquering the Post-New Year’s Blues

This year, my New Year’s Eve wasn’t spent in a fancy gown, drinking champagne, and watching fireworks. Instead, I was home in front of the fireplace, writing, reflecting, and planning. Oh. And there was a glass of wine, of course. After midnight struck, I promptly curled up in bed at 12:03 feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and
