How Many Followers

I spend time helping people create a following on the internet.

I follow many "gurus" and their teachings.

My conclusion about how many followers you should have: you should have all the followers that are interested in you, what you have to say and your product.

It is nice if you can have a million followers. If none of them buy a thing from you or learn anything from you, that is just wasted space. I would rather have one hundred followers and make a positive impact in their lives than having a million people just looking for automatic adds.

What am I trying to say to you? Purge your list of those who are not adding to your life and don't add people automatically. That does not mean that if you are a Republican, all your "friends" have to be Republican. What it means is that if you don't like pornography, you should not have a porn site in your list. If a person insists on insulting all the people that contribute in your chats and comments, that is not the way to carry on a conversation. You want debate, not abuse. It is OK to unfriend a person if they are not willing to disagree respectfully.

Be careful and mindful and respect your space and your friends. You will see your list grow slowly and powerfully. And who knows, maybe your followers will teach you a thing or two in the process.
