ABSTRACT
The author reflects on influencers' role to one's personal life as well as business life. He asserts that influencers are everywhere and they can yield one's confidence and divert their ideas and not on personal grounds and simply goes to the flow of the suggestion. However, the real value of the influencers are not meant to be a surrogate brain, but to supplement and compliment one's research and to think clearly on the plans.
