Follow These Leaders: Wisdom and Mentorship from the Voices of Success


What if you could gather the smartest people you know into one room and ask them anything? Who would be there? What would you ask?

Most likely you would want a wide range of advisors who had been there and done that; people who succeeded; people who failed and got up and dusted themselves off and won the battle anyway. You’d want their sage advice on business and life drawn from their real-life experiences. No agendas in this room except what’s best for you. That time in that room would no doubt be priceless for you as you gather all of the intelligence you’ll need to be your best in every area. 

Follow These Leaders is a chance to do just that. 

When author and speaker Jill Griffin reached out to her network and asked them to contribute their best advice and counsel here in these pages she had no idea that literally everyone would jump at the opportunity to share what they know with people they don’t know and may never meet in person. The room filled up quickly, and the wisdom flowed freely. 

The result? A wise and entertaining handbook with a single goal. Helping you soar.  

Come join us. Follow these leaders and build a great career and life!
