- Goins, Writer — Jeff Goins’ blog has been a driving motivation for my own blog and writing. His posts remind me that I write for me, and they help me keep my content focused on my passions and talents.
- Michael Hyatt — Michael Hyatt doesn’t exactly write about writing… He writes about business, leadership, publishing, productivity and building a platform. His posts about productivity and platform building are the most inspirational to me. I identify with Michael because of his desire for efficiency, his passion for his work and his drive to succeed.
