Who are the brightest entrepreneurial minds that you would love to learn from?

18 replies
Hi guys,

The last couple of days I have a thought that just doesn't leave my brain. And I figured, I need your help to solve it.

You know, there are so many damn smart entrepreneurs in the world but when I'm hanging out in the web, all I see are the same names. Thanks to Google & co, I only see the same ads and infos day after day. Even in the blogs I read, the names stay the same. I want some "fresh blood"!

Now, my thought may seem a little bit unorthodox but I want to play a mind-game.

If you had the chance to go to an "entrepreneurial class" and choose the topic and teacher (= entrepreneur / blogger), what and whom would you choose?

Who would be your no. 1 blogger you would like to ask some questions and why? Out of curiosity, what would be your no. 1 question?

Since I started it, I would love to have a direct talk with Elon Musk. His vision to send people to Mars is quite fascinating.

Well, let us share some thoughts. I hope to learn a few new things here

Thanks a lot and have a great day!

    london reel, Chase Jarvis, Time Ferris ,spartan Up, tom bilyeu.

    these are you tubers and bloggers who are successful themselves and interview a wide verity of other successful people.. and built blogs,youtupbe channels, and podcasts doing that .

    there are thousands of hours of interviews over those channels and you will find others .. search for information from those interviewed .. who you have never heard of before ..

    so anyone worth or willing to be interviewd .. probably has some interview on the web..

    you have to make an effort to get out of the echo chamber today ..

      You're absolutely right. There is no gain without any effort. But there is so much trash out there nowadays, everyone wants to be an expert. It's hard to distinguish the real gems from the rest without a huge investment of time.

      That's why I started the thread. Not because I'm unable to do research myself, but to ask like-minded people for advice of whom they recommend to learn from.

    the number 1 is Anik Singal in my opinion, for me.

    Of course there is Ryan Deiss, Frank Kern, etc...but i like Anik cause it's very helpful and positive and he teaches the basics of Email Marketing and so on.

    Even if i'm truly convinced that you have to learn a SYSTEM, which is Email Marketing, and then go in depth with a mentor.

    I don't think it's good paying thousands before knowing nothing, without any reasearches on your ownd.

    Choose a Master and follow him. There's not more new under the sun: the system, Email Marketing, is the same, it only adds new features and new market to go with.

    Hi Veit,

    Richard Branson, Tony Robbins and Tim Ferriss are 3 fascinating dudes I would like to talk to. But we are blessed in that each is quite active online, so I gain a glimpse into their world, and their insight.

    Ryan Biddulph inspires you to be a successful blogger with his courses, 100 plus eBooks, audio books and blog at Blogging From Paradise

    I learned that mastering comes with experience. Start experementing, testing and that is the best way to learn!

      No question, true mastery comes with experience, but why "waste" days, months, and years, if you can have a teacher / mentor who can give you critical information to boost your learning curve? Doing everything by oneself is not a smart way if you can learn and improve faster with some help.

      That's the point of this thread. To find inspiration from others. Be it from bloggers, youtubers, or entrepreneurs who share their experience with the web.

    Me as well, l don't care too much about Frank Kern, as l have gone through a few of his products, and there is no million dollar idea in them.

    Well, it would be good to have a chat to Elon Musk, and total his Lamborghini.

    But chat to someone in my field, not really, l don't know of anyone in my field who can do two flyers a day, one a day is as close as l have found.

    So in regards to production, l am probably the best there is!

    So l guess that that makes me a bright entrepren,....etc. Groan, l hate being labelled, lol.

    Genius, and kissing my ring is enough!

    Richard Branson, mark zuckerberg- 'lazy entrepreneur' anyone can make it if they realize other people are better than them, so create a team of great minds.

    Jack Ma- 'when you give people what they want, you get what you want' he gave small businesses a platform. many doors will be shut before the right one

    Henry Ford + Richard Branson. I read biographies of both and I have the impression that I'm wasting my time living as I live:/

      Yes, read half of Henry Fords one, but gave up when Edgel came on the scene.

      Interesting life story with the peace ship, and building a factory where raw materials went in and cars came out the other end.

      And it was rumored that he had 315 million in cash, when the 1929 stock market crashed, since Henry didn't agree with shuffling money about and instead believed in creating something real.

      And thankfully ignored his idiot son.

    Not if you learn from them and apply their wisdom to your own life and situation. Taking imperfect action is way more important than thinking about how to deal with it perfectly.
