#BehindtheCurtain: You’re Not a Thought Leader Unless You Take a Stand

In this episode, James & Logan share why you can’t be a thought leader without taking a stand for or against something.

Thanks to Andy Crestodina for prompting this discussion.

Examples to look at where people & brands do take a stand:

1) Sweet Fish: we adamantly disagree with “Quality over Quantity” in content marketing

2) John Barrows: you have to be agile in your approach to sales & not simply subscribe to one single methodology from now until the end of time.

Check out John’s new children’s book here: I Want to Be in Sales When I Grow Up!

3) Sangram Vajre at Terminus: marketing is a function of sales

4) Dale Dupree: he’s leading The Sales Rebellion, talking about vulnerability in sales.

We also discuss the dangers of not taking a stand (vanilla content) and taking a stand just to take it (just causing controversy for no reason).
