Seth Godin is a marketing guy who isn't so much into selling stuff as selling the power of ideas. His many books, including his most recent, Tribes, tap stories of remarkable people doing remarkable things, and by virtue of their example, they define a new direction, they gather like-minded and push the envelope around. Oh yes, and they make a lot of money too. Google him and see what I'm talking about.
Today Seth made an offer I hope some of you won't refuse. An apprenticeship for six months with him, in New York, learning, working on projects, connecting to amazing people. Instead of staying in school because you can't find a job, or if your job is iffy or worse, gone, you just might want to throw caution to the wind and see if you can measure up to Godin's expectations. The people he tends to attract are all ages and range from software designers, dot.com entrepreneurs to feed the hungry, micro-enterprise venture capitalist types. And average folk who happen to have good ideas that take hold and change the world or some part of it.
I'd try out for this thing in a New York minute but I have a mortgage and can't commute that far, which by definition, makes me too chicken-hearted to be who he's looking for. But I sure can cheer the intrepid--maybe you on. Check out his offer here. Go ahead; change your life. Or if you are too squeamish, please pass the word on to your kids, your friends or even that clever enemy at work you can't seem to get off your case. In the end, they'll thank you for it.
