What is Reputation Capital?

We live in the age of reputation. Influencers, gurus, wizards, czars, geeks, mavens, and thought leaders rule the roost. So what about you?

We ask difficult questions of hustlers and heros, founders and failers … those who have done it, are doing it, and will get things done.

Capitalize on your reputation. Step out of the shadows. Shift the earth on its axis. #YOLO.
