American Genius Beat kicked off 2014 with a list of Top 50 Influencers. The list did not focus on a specific subject or simply social media. The editors featured artists, authors and even politicians. Readers were encouraged to follow at least ten of the influencers, "because we’re certain that they’ll enrich your life. They don’t know they’re being named, they didn’t petition for any votes, they are finding out as you are that we find them to be influential regardless of follower count, but based on their talent." When explaining Eve's selection they said, "But what Mayer most inspires us with is her deep knowledge about LinkedIn, a professional network that many people misunderstand, misuse, and worse, ignore." Other influencers include:
- Amanda Quraishi described as one of the most selfless people you’ll meet in a lifetime, and the web administrator for Mobile Loaves and Fishes. The organization takes catering trucks filled with food and clothes directly to the homeless in the city to afford them basic dignities.
- Founder of PredictableProfits.com, Charles Gaudet has championed entrepreneur marketing and seeks to help those around him to create better visions of themselves.
- Examining important topics for Millennials on her television show, Raising McCain, Meghan McCain has offered a unique insight into a budding generation.
