First impressions — this book really pushes to sell itself. The language is a little like self-help books. “Keep doing X and…”, “In 6 months you will…”, “just trust it and…”

Reading past that, it is quite interesting!

It gives 5 true suggestions that would help make you eminent in your niche:

  • have an answer for ‘what you do? — with a specific structure
  • start writing publicly — it pushes you to write a book for good reason
  • start offering products — books, blogs, courses, todo lists
  • build a profile — to hold of these things
  • partner with others — to extend your reach and scale

The author, Daniel Priestley, does what he says and you can feel that in his writing with this book — he is completing his method by writing this book!

What is a KPI?

A Key Person of Influence is someone who are known in their niche — “well connected, well known, well regarded and highly valued”. They don’t chase opportunities, they take their pick.
