Chalk one up for the little guy….and building “buzz” for your blog, brand and business in a ferociously fast, fun, & creative cool way.

A great example of how to combine a bit of skill, a bit of savvy, and a bit of genuine personal passion into a once in a lifetime experience.

I may try something like this for Game of Thrones.  

I’ve already have the perfect idea.

(and a  closet full of crowns and dragons)

Check out the awesome story on Jake Caputo’s blog below.

Over the course of a few hours back in June of 2012, I created a one page website called Take My Money, HBO! The goal was simple: Bombard the @HBO and@HBOGO Twitter accounts with tweets stating how much money people would be willing to pay for a standalone HBO GO app.

Last month, nearly three years after the campaign, HBO announced HBO NOW. During the announcement event, HBO contacted me and invited me to New York City for an on camera interview.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I'm a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he's super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says " it's always NOW" when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You're making me nervous.
