From 2008 – 2013 I made over $1,000,000 by wearing t-shirts.
Those fake testimonials seem more realistic, don’t they? Well, believe it. For five years I convinced over 1,600 companies to pay me to put on a t-shirt everyday and promote them via social media. The project was called IWearYourShirt and it’s how I cut my entrepreneurial teeth (which is SUCH a weird phrase!)
Ready for things to get crazier?
I sold my last name twice. Yep, I was every TSA Agent’s dream.
Don’t worry, the white glove treatment wasn’t as bad as you think, and neither was the hassle of living with four different last names in the span of four years. In 2012 I auctioned off my last name for the first time and it sold for $45,500 to Headsets.com. Then, I did it again in 2013, and my last name brought in $50,000 from the guys at Surfrapp.co. I also donated 10% of my last name proceeds, but you’re not here for the charitable stuff: There’s more!
Yep, there’s even more to my story...
Only ever written tweets? Why not write a book… in two weeks?!
After my IWearYourShirt business took a dump (read: went under due to being overworked, trying too hard to scale, and not knowing how to run a business), I decided to write a book! Hey, why not? But in true Jason Zook fashion, I did things quite a bit differently. I nabbed 204 sponsors and generated $75,000 in revenue for a book by a first-time, self-published, has-no-business-writing-a-book, author (me!) Creativity For Sale was born.
we’re done, right? Wait... we’re not??
T-Shirts, last names, books? What’s next, my future??? Oh wait, yeah, that was next.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I make a living by selling the weird/crazy/impossible. Selling my future seemed like a next logical step. BuyMyFuture is like buying a Costco Membership, but to me (and without the 5-gallon tubs of mayo!) It’s a one-time fee for unlimited access to everything I’ve created and everything I ever will create.
No, not my kids, you weirdo. Business stuff. Sheesh.
holy crap is there more?!
