Role models are the new royalty, so be a great one | Business | Scoop.it

In the age of social media, role models are the new royalty. Whether it's labels such as #fitspiration, #bodyspiration or - the hashtag I most frequently see on my newsfeed - #careerspiration, it seems like everyone is looking for someone to look up to. With power, though, comes great responsibility.

As a CEO in a high-profile publishing role, I am in the lucky position to frequently meet people who say my work, books or conference addresses have inspired, motivated and guided them. I love hearing this, but it always leaves me with a slight sense of 'imposter syndrome'. Because, lets face it, I'm only human, and no single person has all the answers. What if I lead someone down the wrong path, and offer advice that doesn't serve them?
