C.C. Chapman’s Top 5 Influencers That Keep Things Fresh

On the last episode of “Smashing the Plateau,” we brought you content marketing expert and author C.C. Chapman. C.C. made some great points about getting excited about new projects and admitting your weaknesses. (If you missed C.C., go back and listen here.)

Like mostly everyone, C.C. knows he couldn’t have done it alone. Here are 5 of his favorite influencers:

1. Seth Godin

His writing and approach to business has always reminded me that there is no wrong way to approach a situation. He may be a mentor from afar, but when we met he knew me by name and that means a lot.

2. Chase Jarvis

His approach to creativity and photography is a constant inspiration. It has been fun to watch his endeavors grow, expand and go in very different directions. He constantly pushes me to be better in all I create.

3. First Break All the Rules

This was the first book that opened my eyes to the fact that it was ok to be a misfit in business and that my thinking wasn’t so crazy. I go back and read it often as a reminder that the path I’m on is the right one.

4. AJ Leon

AJ is a dear friend and the way he approaches life and business is a constant inspiration to me. I look to him for advice, direction and motivation whenever I need it and he always delivers!

5. My dad

I can’t make a list like this without mentioning the man who made me who I am. He gave me the love of the outdoors, showed me what it meant to be a father and how to be a good person.
