Machiavelli’s Guide to Becoming the Top Authority In Your Niche

Everyone knows that if you want to make powerful connections and launch a successful career, you’ll need to become an authority in your field.

Or do you?

If you really want to rise to the top of your trade, it’s far more important to play the part of the authority than it is to actually be one. Today we tell you how to do it. We also take a look at history to study those who – for better or worse – have used this concept to gain notoriety and solidify their places as kings of industry.

Machiavelli would be proud.
