In a world where attention has become both currency and commodity, it’s tempting to believe there’s a direct correlation between influence and impact.
The modern definition of an influencer is someone who can persuade people with their recommendations. But it turns out, the people who have the greatest impact are not necessarily the people with the most influence.
Our impact isn’t only measured in crude metrics like attention.
Think about the people who have had the most impact on your life—a patient teacher, a caring friend or a wise mentor. These people likely made a difference, with something they continually did, not just something they once told you to do.
Change happens when more people seek to be less influential and more impactful.
We get to choose which matters most.

If you’re ready to increase your impact, I hope you’ll join us.
