Some people will read this as YAFS - Yet Another Facebook Story - but I think it is different because it shows how I used a social network in a way that will provide free promotion for me, my ventures and build my reputation: Something that I feel would be helpful to many people.
I was recently asked to read an upcoming book on entrepreneurship and provide a written testimonial and video if I liked it. The book is called The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur and is written by Mike Michalowicz coming out in September.
I was doing some work around the house over the weekend when my neighbor came over to tell me he recently co-founded a diversified business in the services industry. After we talked for a few minutes about his new business, I asked him for a card. About an hour later he came back, card in hand. Multi-job Company: specializing in lawn maintenance, pet sitting, auto detailing, and beverages/snacks. Oh, I forgot to tell you the first draft of his card was in pencil, and my neighbor is 9. I was amazed. I don’t remember what I was doing at his age, but I know I wasn’t launching a business.
