(From the interview)
You can get a pop star or somebody being an INFLUENCER and they're not necessarily a THOUGHT LEADER.
You must ACHIEVE these four things, otherwise, it's unlikely you'll be a thought leader:
Unless you push and push and push yourself and challenge yourself and keep yourself to a VERY HIGH STANDARD, you're not going to get to that real gem of an idea.
An article or a blog is not thought leadership unless it's truly INTERESTING, EXCITING, DIFFERENT, ORIGINAL, DISRUPTIVE and you know, making heads turn.
Thought Leaders / Entrepreneurs ENERGY >>
"They don't settle for the obvious answer or the first idea that comes to mind. They don't settle for boring ideas. Ideas that offer nothing new. They don't settle because they know that they've been cold to share truly innovative ideas. And unless you push and push and push yourself and challenge yourself and keep yourself to a very high standard, you're not going to get to that real gem of an idea.
Yes, we've helped people write books, but the really exciting bit is to come up with the gem that, you know - at the center of the eye of the book is the IDEA and where it REALLY SHINES, where it's REALLY SAYING SOMETHING NEW, you know, it because of the market response."

Jeremy Redman - entrepreneur, speaker, and author: "I built multiple 6-figure companies by 30 and I’m trying to make them 7-figure. Somehow I got all the way from the trailer park to Sunset Blvd."
"4 years ago I was told I was going to have a hard time being a tech entrepreneur. I did not have a cofounder (on at least 12 different occasions people wanted to be my cofounder and then abandoned me when things got tough – but I didn’t let that stop me), I could not code and I didn’t have much money. But I wasn’t going to let people tell me I couldn’t be an entrepreneur. It’s all I ever wanted to be. I remember when I was first called an entrepreneur and I remember how it felt. I was 7. I also remember being called that when I actually knew what it meant. And I have been chasing that feeling ever since. I want as many people to feel that same feeling and I want to help get them there. It’s not easy, but V/One sure definitely makes it easier than ever before."
Not Boring Business
"I started a brand called Not Boring Business: the go-to resource for pivoters, freelancers, solopreneurs and side-hustlers. Be sure to check out the podcast on iTunes and Stitcher."
"What if I told you that if you are brave enough to follow your dreams and you do what you know is right you will always win, no matter what the outcome is, and no matter if everyone else thinks you are crazy?
My dear invisible friend, I want to share with you a story. I want to show you how Quantum Psychology can change everything you take for granted in the world as we know it. I'm offering you to be part of my personal journey, raising questions that will challenge your own perceptions.
The moment is here and now, but the concepts of time and space can be elusive, as we will learn... Because this is a story about time, space and true interpersonal connections, and how the 3 of them, which we take for granted, can be deceiving even when an alternative truth lays in front of you.
This is a dairy, a window to perceive the world from a different perspective than we have been biologically designed to. If you expect me to inspire or guide you, stop reading now; because I am determined to prove that the power to write destiny lies within each one of us.
This will not be a comfortable or easy quest, filled with frustration and defeat. But remember that failure doesn't come from defeat; failure only comes from not trying or giving up on what you know as true.
Are you ready to endeavor this journey with me?
Our path to change the world starts here, it is all your choice..."

Martin Piskoric, about the Neverboss:
The book is brilliant. I read it from the first to the last page and took notes. Kevin gives himself 100%—openly sharing his knowledge, understanding, and application.
I liked the book's structure as well. For this topic, it was better than a parable and way beyond the classical educational approach.
Neverboss made me think and engage, besides involving my emotions all the time. So both my left and right brain worked as I learned.
This book needs to be read by as many people as possible, from the C level to the front line.
