At Alt Marketing School, we spend a lot of time on social media, but that comes with the job. In fact, we are truly mindful of the people we surround ourselves with in the online world. We share some of our favourite accounts for entrepreneurs on Instagram, both from the Alt Marketing School team and our alumni community.

We encourage our students to surround themselves with inspiring people as a great way to keep inspiration high, especially when life gets in the way. 

Dan Murray Serter

Dan is the founder of Heights (we had the pleasure to interview him for the podcast when we just started). He is vocal about topics such as mental health, spirituality and entrepreneurship. Dan is a very kind soul, passionate about normalising men-tan health about other things and embracing a kinder way to be an entrepreneur. 

He is also the host of ‘Secret Leaders’, which recently launched a mini-series, ‘How I Failed‘, which features candid interviews with industry figureheads about setbacks in their career, including the likes of Trinny Woodall. Listeners can glean hard-won advice and learnings as leaders dissect some of their lesser-known failures, often sharing how these early failures brought their businesses to where they are today.

Simon Alexander Ong

Through his content, Simon teaches you how to make the most out of every moment and achieve more than you ever thought possible. Everything he does is built to inspire people to see their world differently and ignite their imagination of what is genuinely possible to unleash their deepest potential. 

As an award-winning coach, author of Energize and international keynote speaker, he has been interviewed on Sky News, BBC and Forbes and has spoken at some of the planet’s most successful organisations.
