This week I’ve decided to re-inspire myself and all of you with the best of the best – those people who’ve actually innovated, broken boundaries, displayed excellence as entrepreneurs and marketers…
And made fortunes in the process. Some you may have heard of, some are more below the radar but one thing is for sure…these are the real deal. No self-invented gooroos here!
Let’s start with Joe Polish, the man who practically invented many of the techniques we now use every day, especially in copywriting and content, and who consults to people such as Richard Branson.
