Who Inspires You To Be Better At What You Do?

I’m driven by other marketers who inspire me to be more creative. These people push me to try harder, and in the end, I’m better for it. One of those people is Shawn Collins.

Shawn inspires me daily with his videos and his marketing ideas and his general attitude of having fun as a marketer. I mean, the guy really knows how to connect with his audience.

Check out this video he did with his kids. He made a post on his blog saying he was retiring from Affiliate Marketing (great hook headline for him), then put up a video of a fake press conference with his kids asking the questions. Very effective.

Watch this.

His promotion of his projects and conference always make me jealous of his ideas. It seems that every month I get a unique item from him via snail maril or email that is tied into some clever marketing campaign pushing me back to his blog or website.

Thanks Shawn, and keep up the inspirational work. It drives me to try new things and reminds me to have more fun.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    Very true Jim, I am subscribed to his blog and I get emails daily about some nice creative idea or something.
    In the email I only get header and maybe 3-4 lines but those 3-4 lines have the content to click on them and go to his blog.

    Shawn is up there on my “admired” list too and the biggest attribute I admire in the guy is his discipline. He has so many projects going on and still manages to pull them all off. The guys blogs religiously and always seems to have the pipeline on the info before anyone else.

    Keep it up man :)

    I think inspiration can come from any source, sometimes even unexpected sources. A film, an advert, something some one said, or something even my own kid did… it is an endless list, i think the trick is the way you you look at everything, at everyday mundane things in our lives.
