  1. Great show! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve not reached out to influencers because I felt like I didn’t have anything to offer. There are even those I don’t reach out to because I honestly believe that there is no way they will ever read my email and if I do get a reply it might not even be them but someone hired to manage their email.
