Today, I have a special little treat for you. Its what the blogging experts call a “guest post” but I just call it a treat for the readers. Todays post comes from a guy who knows a thing or two about social media and blogging. In fact, he knows so much he founded a company called EyeSpeak that is changing the way companies interact with customers through the web.
Today on the blog it is my great privilege to turn the pages over to Benj Miller.
Instead of me go on and on about what he does and who he is here is what he does at EyeSpeak: Benj founded eyespeak with the idea that he could create an agency experience for clients without all of the add-ons and bloated billing practices of traditional agencies. In the last six years his idea has blossomed into a full service design, development, and social media agency service focusing on faith based organizations, start-up companies, and small and medium sized businesses that are looking to get over the hump.
I am pretty pumped about this post and I think you will find yourself at the end understanding what the title is all about. Enjoy and follow the guy on twitter @benjmiller
We all remember the success of the Jackass crew on MTV and their follow-up movies. If you are XY you found them entertaining. You may have felt guilty for finding them entertaining… but they were and you know it.
I was thinking about them the other day and their secret to success; they knew one thing that was exploitable for success…COURAGE.
I’m not so much speaking to the courage it takes to run in front of a horny rhino and risk bones being broken. That is brave, but what set them apart was their courage to look stupid and ugly in front of a lot of people.
I think Jesus could use a few Jackasses (is that a word?). A few men and women to rise up, band together and not be afraid of what the world will think when people see their naked insane ugliness.
I want to be a Jackass for Jesus.
