I was introduced to Jason Zook in 2008. Back then his last name was Sadler (more about that soon). He had started a business called IWearYourShirt.com. Companies would pay him to wear one of their t-shirts and Jason would create a video promoting that company and share it online. He turned this one crazy idea into a $1M business.
Although it was an exciting journey, Jason decided it was time to move on and try something new. In 2012 he turned a disappointing situation (his mother and stepfather got divorced) into a money-making venture by selling his last name.Yep, Jason sold his last name to the highest bidder not once, but twice! As you cam imagine, this earned him a lot of publicity which helped him gain more exposure as he continued to build his online presence. You can get the whole scoop at BuyMyLastName.
It’s been fun watching Jason’s journey. He and I have had some wonderful conversations over the years. I appreciate his creativity, authenticity, and overall awesomeness. He inspires others to take action every day in order to make things happen in their business and life.
I recently had the opportunity to interview him. We chatted a little about his journey, his thoughts on entrepreneurship and he shared what he’s up to now. Check it out here:
