EEC 221: What Propagandists and Cult Leaders Can Teach US About Success
Are you susceptible to propaganda and persuasion? Hype truly runs our world today. What effects does it have on entrepreneurs? with Michael F. Schein.
- Hype is a word that often has a negative connotation. Why did you choose it for the title of your book?
- What key messages do you communicate in your book, the Hype Handbook?
- You’ve publicly called out a number of prominent gurus, including Gary Vaynerchuk, Tony Robbins, and Simon Sinek. What is your point of view about them?
- Why did you choose coaches and consultants for your company’s target market?
- Why do you shy away from the word “marketing” in describing what you do?
- Is it really more helpful for your clients to promote themselves rather than doing the work for them?
