“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Benjamin Disraeli

In a world that is increasingly growing more visual, how do you keep up? 

Younger and younger generations are becoming more socially competent in understanding differences in the “true-self” and “Instagram-self,” but what about information spread online? 

86% of people are now what is known as a  “visual learner.” Infographics and other visual aids are a great way to absorb information. However, as we look at older generations, we see a problem where we have not kept up on our education with the vast evolution of the internet and are trusting of data visualizations that might have completely false data. 

Amy Balliett of Killer Visual Strategies joins us today to discuss what you need to know as a consumer, entrepreneur, marketer, and leader. From best practices to statistics, this is one podcast you don’t want to miss.
