The great Stephen King once said, “We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why.” Whether you approach life intentionally or live each day as it comes, your actions, words and nonverbal expressions influence other people’s actions or responses. Similarly, other people influence or impact your daily activities, and these little contributions add up to the big decisions you make; be it in your creative career or other aspects of life.
Today’s Creative Gist features a range of creatives from the design, entertainment, creative business and content creation sectors who answer the question: who is the greatest influence in your career? Dive in to read the impactful answers these creatives shared with us.
Who Influences Your Career?
No man is an island as our insightful creatives have expressed in their responses. One of the ways to keep growing is to constantly acknowledge and intentionally appreciate people or factors that influence your career path. This will also enable you to pay such influence forward by impacting other people’s lives positively.
You circle of influence might be large or small, but we want to know, who is the greatest influence in your career? Tell us in the comment section.

For me, my peers have been my greatest influence in that, they pushed me at the beginning of my writing career to put myself out there. They shared opportunities and assisted me with making myself known in my field.
One of such remarkable people is Amos Adejimi, who during our NYSC programme, reminded of how good of a writer I was in the university, and went ahead to design the graphics and edited my very first self-published anthology. I have so many others I can’t mention, but he was a catalyst to other progresses I’ve experienced in my career.
I will say my siblings, they introduced me to Tech field.
