Yesterday on Smashing the Plateau, Goutham Bhadri taught us how to become authorities in our fields.
Here are some of his biggest influences:
1) Sir Richard Branson
He’s the standout for me. Coming from the UK, he was the aspirational leader, the typical anti-business hero, not just because of what he achieved, but how he achieved it. He inspired me to start a business.
2) Prof. Muhammed Yunus
He helped me understand the social impact of business.
3) Dan Kennedy
He’s a very popular author, and from him I learned Internet marketing, online selling and automated business systems.
4) James Altucher
He has terrific focus on one’s self and self-promotion.
5) Sabarathnam Ananthram
He is a semi-retired doctor (and my father-in-law) who taught me how to acquire, build and sell businesses.
