This week we have an unbelievable logic trap that comes from the genius mind of one of the worlds leading mentalists, Banachek. In this incredible game, both players can lie or tell the truth… Yet just by asking two simple questions, you’ll be able to figure out who is who…. And who stole your 20 bucks!
Make sure to check out Banachek’s amazing back catalog of material at banachekproducts.com, and drop him a note saying thanks from Scam School!
Hello all! I have some great news about my future and the future of one of my favorite new media companies!
First, for over the past year I have had an amazing job working for a one-of-a-kind person, Brian Brushwood. I was in charge of many things, from moving the live magic show around, to working on live internet coverage at some of the bigest conventions in the world. Working for Brian was rewarding and challenging in ways that I couldn’t have ever imagined. So first I would like to thank Brian for his friendship and tell anyone who will listen that the only reason I am where I am today is because of his generosity.
With that said, on June first I will be starting a new job as an Associate Producer for one of the biggest new media companies in existence, TWiT. Not familiar with TWiT?
Needless to say, I am extremely excited about working for such a great company. My new responsibilities at TWiT will include producing current and new shows, working logistics for live events and anything else they can throw at me.
So I have made it a goal to write down everything that I am doing to try to make myself a success on the internet. This includes researching what works and doesn’t work, reading about goal setting and management, personal finance, and finding out what I need to be good at for “internet entertainment” to work for me. And then become good at it.
Step 1: Re-branding.
For a long time I have been known as KrazzyDude07… What a terrible name! I came up with it in middle school, it is truly the equivalent of LunaticMan69 (except that one is spelled correctly) If someone asks where to find me I have been saying “crazy dude 07 spelled with a ‘k’ and two ‘z’s” No one will remember that! Also that gives me no room to grow, when I am thirty I DO NOT want to be known as KrazzyDude07.
So the new username is OMGchad. It is easy to remember, easy to spell, it works with my brand, it has my name in it, and it can grow. When I am older I can drop off the “OMG” and just be Chad.
Also “just be Chad”. For a long time I have introduced myself as “Chad Johnson”. This causes problems with douche bags because of Chad ‘Ocho Cinco’ Johnson. But it also doesn’t fit with who I am trying to be. I am trying to be the personable guy that I am, like everyones friend. You don’t know friends by their first and last name. You know them by their first name or a nickname. So last name NO MORE!
It is little things like this that get you thousands more followers. That is it for step one!
Tip: If you are trying to do this whole internet thing, think about who you are. Don’t try to be someone else, be you, but think about what your strengths are and play to them. There will be more about that later when I talk about vision.
