Influencers the Chet Team Follows

The Chet team is always looking for the most influential businesspeople, writers, and leaders to learn from. Here are some of our favorite people to follow for their insights.

1. Tim Ferriss

Tim Ferriss is a jack of all trades. An entrepreneur, angel investor, author, and podcast Ferriss seemingly does it all. He focuses on a diverse range of topics, from the startup world to methods of optimizing human performance. There’s always some incredibly interesting and useful tidbit of knowledge in his content.

2. Barbara Corcoran

Everyone knows her from the popular tv show ‘Shark Tank’, but Barbara Corcoran has lived a true rags-to-riches story. Growing up in a poor family, dealing with dyslexia, and going through the trials and tribulations of an entrepreneur, Corcoran successfully built a real estate empire in New York from scratch. We love to hear her unique perspectives as a woman entrepreneur who has faced some of the toughest challenges to get her to where she is today.

3. Bill Gates

Bill Gates needs no introduction. The tech pioneer turned mega-philanthropist has been one of the most influential human beings on the planet for decades now. From founding Microsoft to his dedication to eradicate deadly diseases, Gates has always displayed brilliance. Whenever he has some recommendations around books, articles, or podcasts, we’d be remiss not to pay attention to them.

4. Richard Branson

Business mogul, investor, author, and philanthropist are just a few words to describe Sir Richard Branson. The larger than life founder of Virgin Group has accomplished seemingly everything, from launching successful music labels to an empire of airlines. Branson’s ability to always pivot, stay ahead of curves, and develop a diverse portfolio of products lands him on our list of someone we listen to.

5. Sheryl Sandberg

Sheryl Sandberg is one of the most influential and high-powered women in the world. As the COO of Facebook, she has been a trail blazer for women in the tech industry. Beyond that, she has written numerous books and has started the Lean-In Foundation to help further support and empower women in the workplace.
