4 Twitter Profiles That Young Entrepreneurs Should Follow

If you’re a young entrepreneur, you probably have a few highly successful entrepreneurs that you follow to the T. After all, if we want to attain incredible success, it’s a good idea to follow in the footsteps of those who already have. I’ve found quite a bit of value in following successful Twitter profiles. The character count limit ensures that the message is received quickly. While some aren’t so good at making use of the minimalistic approach to communication, some are incredible, and give young entrepreneurs a new chance to learn every day.

Here are 4 Twitter profiles that young entrepreneurs simply must follow!

Profile #1: T. Harv Eker.

Harv Eker is, for all intensive purposes, a normal guy. He wasn’t born into riches and he had to work hard for everything he has. However, what he’s got over the masses is an incredible rags-to-riches success story. His journey from zero to millionaire took only two and a half years. Today, he makes his millions teaching others how to follow that same journey.

Harv’s Twitter profile is filled with great snippets of information. He regularly shares advice with regard to money management, motivational quotes, tips on how to become a happier individual and tips on how to become more successful. So, if you’re not already following him, now is the time to start.
