Perhaps You Haven't Tried Everything Yet
Are You Still Unemployed?
If you are, like me, still unemployed, then you haven't tried everything yet. You haven't even heard everything yet! If you have read any of my other Hubs, you know I am always saying you can change the world if you start where you are. It all starts with you. Another fine example of that is here, with Jason Sadler, and his story.
Okay, I know that this is going to sound insane, but what if you could get paid to wear a T-shirt? I don't know if you've heard of these guys or not, but this morning on my way to school, I did. There was a radio interview with a guy from iwearyourshirt.com.
I always listen to the same station: 97.9 WRMF. I am listening, while trying to figure out how to make ends meet, when I hear them talking about an upcoming interview with Jason Sadler, the founder of IWearYourShirt.com. I thought maybe it was like the dirty jobs guy. He does your job for the day and does a video about it, but NO! That is not what Jason and his new partner Evan White do, they wear your company's T-Shirt for the day. They go on live video for an hour and promote your business.
It does not stop here. With less than 40 days left to sell for the year (and it's still March) Jason and Evan are going to expand as soon as he sells out for the year. Shooting for six shirts per day in 2011, these guys can do the math. Here's how it works.
January 1st is $2.00 and the price increases $2.00 every day until December 31st which is $730. Now that doesn't sound like much money, until you do the math. Jason has made 87,000.00 so far. Now I know I have your attention.
So what are they looking for? A College guy, maybe a young woman, and a couple of average Joes, like you and me. They want to "increase their demographic". Right now they are getting paid to wear T-shirts that other people usually buy!
The first thing I did when I got home, was e-mail them about either wearing a T-shirt, or at least writing about them here. I asked if they were looking to franchise, spread out! They haven't got a job for me yet, so no T-shirt, but maybe, if I am lucky, and they like this story, they will send me one of theirs. I would proudly sport an IWearYourShirt.com T-shirt (hint hint).
So How Did He Do It?
Jason Sadler had an idea. How did he get started? According to the Dec.28, 2008 article on jacksonville.com with news columnist Mark Woods, the idea just came to him. Jason had been asking himself "What do I do every day that I could get paid for?" His answer came to him one night "I get dressed" and since he works from home, as Co-owner of a Web Design company, he often wears a T-shirt. I know you wish you'd thought of that. So do I!
Jason was 26 when he did that interview, and ended up selling out all of his days in 2009. The math? Over $66,000. That was with a start of $1.00 for his first day. Jason is giving back. He donates the T-shirts that he has gotten paid to wear. His goal is one million T-shirts for charity.

So what does this mean to me?
You might be asking yourself that question. Jason Sadler and Evan White already have a copyright on this idea. And they are only planning on hiring a handful of folks for 2011. What good does this do us?
Well, Jason Sadler knows he came up with a brilliant idea. He also knows that the only reason he did that was because he, months before, was thinking "I wish I'd thought of that." about someone else's brilliant idea. Because he remembers where he came from, he has been willing to share how he did it with the media, so that you too can achieve this kind of success.
In this interview with Jacksonville Advantage, he lays out the business and marketing plan for you. I am amazed myself. A true Entrepreneur is giving his marketing plan away step by step, to all who are willing to read it. Free. It is another way of giving back.
You can follow Jason and Evan on Twiiter, Facebook and YouTube. You can even reserve a day if you have your own business, or a person you want to honor. If you'd like to purchase an iwearyourshirt.com T-shirt, there were only 100 left at last count: $15.00 a piece.
So what do you do every day that you might be able to find a market for? I am a writer, there are poets and artists galore here. Perhaps you can write an article a day, about a particular company on your blog, or feature them on your web site. How about cleaning products? You know the commercials? Pledge on one side and "the other leading brand" on the other side? Use your imagination. $1.00 a day, for the first day, $2.00 for the second day... I know you can think of something.
