Jason Zook is one of the must creative and innovative entrepreneurs I know. He lives his life (both on and offline) by one rule: he must Do Things Differently, however possible. This is evident in everything from his website copy, to his wacky businesses where he even sold his last name to a company for a whopping $50,000.
I love the authentic boldness he brings to his ventures, and to his life, and in today's episode we go behind the scenes of how he makes it all possible.
“If you’re not willing to invest in the project, then you should be okay with mediocre results or no results.”
