True to form being a few years behind everyone else, I am finally reading The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. If you too are a few years behind like me, The Tipping Point is an international bestseller that “explains and analyzes the ‘tipping point’, that magical moment when ideas, trends and social behaviours cross a threshold, tip and spread like wildfire.”
I was struck by the description of a Maven. For a full breakdown of a what a Maven is like I suggest you read the book, but in short a Maven “is a person who has information on a lot of different products or prices or places. This person likes to initiate discussions with consumers and respond to requests”. I thought about Martin Lewis the Money Making Expert. If ever there was a man who fit the description it is him. Having seen him on TV I have often wondered if he is for real and now I know he is.
