Wow–talk about game-changers.
Seth Godin has a reputation among marketing circles (new and old media types) for shaking things up and helping us see the world “different.”
He has written some amazing books that challenge our thinking (my favorite “All Marketers Are Liars: The Power of Telling Authentic Stories in a Low-Trust World.”) But I think this one just about takes it. He is offering a few, select people, a chance to work with him for 6 months. Unpaid. And I think it is worth it!
In his words:
If you’re stuck in a dead end job in publishing, or if you made a not-so-great choice in getting your career started, or if you thought Wall Street would be a different place, or if you just got laid off, or if you’re not crazy about fretting away the next six months waiting to get fired and you’re not quite ready to start your own gig… this might be the turbolift you were hoping for. Yes, it’s free.
It’s a chance to get off that track and onto a new track, faster and cheaper than most of the alternatives. And it might even be fun.[The rest of this page has various details about the program, so I don’t have to answer the same questions again and again. It also has a bit of encouragement to it, since I realize it’s a very big deal for you to drop everything to do this. It’s also a big deal on my end, so hopefully it’ll all work out.]
