WELCOME TO ere’s to another 365-day opportunity for self-renewal. New health & wellness plan, new reasons to be dedicated to the art of living well, and perhaps a new career. We’ve always felt the same way about InFluential Magazine Family. If we don’t reinvent ourselves on a consistent basis, you’ll get bored, we’ll get bored, and soon thereafter we’ll lose appeal, which in the publishing world is the last thing you want to be.
Starting with this edition, we’re taking a refined approach to our Exclusive Features. Having had the opportunity to get to know so many national influencers - we decided we were due for a few updates. Thus, we can’t wait to bring greater awareness to influencers, who from an international scale, are making positive differences. By doing so, we highlight emerging influencers and, not coincidentally, many of them are women, people of color, young entrepreneurs; in other words, those often less represented among the traditional sphere of influence. We’ll strive to take a similar approach to many of our topics we bring to you in each edition. It’s a testament to InFluential Magazine’s commitment to recognizing, valuing, and highlighting the cultural diversity that fills our wonderful world. We hope you’ll embrace the updates. Perhaps, as part of your New Year’s Resolutions, you’ll commit to read more and subscribe at www.influential-magazine.com to InFluential Magazine and our amazing sister publications Spanish InFluential and Teen InFluential. We wish you the very best in 2019! May it be prosperous in so many thrilling ways.
