Becoming an Industry Influencer
We have all worked at some company and seen it happen. A new hire comes on board and immediately skyrockets to stardom. That person lands promotion after promotion, rising through the corporate ranks effortlessly.
We look at those types of individuals and think, "Why isn't that me? What does she know that I don't know?"
In the field of industry influence, the good news is, you can be that person. All you have to do are the things most other people in your industry fail to do.
If the vast majority of people are unsuccessful, unhappy, unfulfilled, and would rather follow than lead, don't do the things they are doing. As far as developing industry influence goes, this means taking specific actions that other people in your field are not.
