The difference between successful entrepreneurs and those with 1,000 great ideas boils down to one factor: execution. That’s why, instead of thinking about being the #2 top online influencer in the world, John Rampton put pen to paper and made it happen.

“When becoming an entrepreneur, the first step is to just get started.”

John Rampton is the founder and CEO of Due, an online invoicing company based out of Palo Alto, California. Recently named #2 on a list of the Top 50 online influencers in the world by Entrepreneur Magazine — as well as a top blogging expert by Forbes — Rampton is an online marketing guru and entrepreneur matchmaker.

He also writes for notable publishers such as Inc., Huffington Post, Forbes, TechChrunch, and Mashable. Passionate about entrepreneurship and building products and services, Rampton is the global go-to for the knowledge and skills needed to startup successfully.

In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to John about what it takes to be top #2 Online Influencers in the world and the challenges and opportunities that come with leadership.
