Edition #125 – 05/09/2007
Today we launched The Next Internet Millionaire, which is an entrepreneur-themed reality show designed for the internet.
The genesis of the show occurred late last year, as Joel and I were discussing possible ideas for our next joint venture. Joel came up with the idea of doing a reality show, and the time since then has been a fast-paced ride as we developed the concept and created a business out of it.
In case you’re one of my beloved loyal readers and wondered where I’ve been lately, or why I haven’t been writing very much–this is why.
I have long wanted to do a project like this, but I had no idea just how labor-intensive this kind of work is. When you watch a TV show or a movie, there’s usually a list of credits which includes dozens and often hundreds of people responsible for making it happen. Now I know what a lot of those people do, because I have been doing all their jobs 😉
And while I won’t be getting much sleep this year, it’s great working with Joel and his team, and with my brother-in-law Micah who is a partner in our production company.
Rather than take the time to explain what the show is all about, I’ll just let you watch this video:
Yes – we really are bringing all the finalists to Colorado all-expenses paid, and when you see the names of all the guest teachers that are coming out to help us, you’ll be amazed (well it amazes me anyway).
The best part is that you’re invited to try out for the show. We’re accepting auditions from now until June 6th, and you can submit them on our website.
But regardless of whether you decide to try out for the show, there’s a lot of great stuff for you on the site. For one thing, you can view the audition videos and vote on your favorites!
We’re also giving away prizes to some of our viewers, and there is an affiliate opportunity as well. You can get all the details at:
Ok, enough said. Go check it out and let me know what you think!
As always, you may leave your comments here on the blog.
Have a great day!
