Influencers vs. Influential People

I have often heard people say “I’m a social media influencer” or “As an influencer….”

Not once have we talked about influential people.

I’m sure you’re thinking “What is the difference?”

I stumbled upon a podcast from the Charlie Rocket Show. This is the difference:

  • Influencers want to be followed because they are perfect, wealthy.
  • Influential people are relatable, neither are they trying to be perfect.
  • We should strive to be extraordinary but also we should learn to be authentic and tell the truth.
  • People appreciate honesty because you are relatable.
  • “I am you theory” – stop trying to show how different you are to everyone else, do amazing things but be honest.
