The Power of Being Helpful with Jason Zook

Reading Time: minutes

In my opinion, Jason Zook is one of the most interesting people online.  I first became aware of him when he had a project called i wear your shirt, where he got sponsors to pay him to wear their t-shirts all month.

Later he wrote a book funded by sponsorships.

Still later he sold his last name — meaning he literally changed his legal name.  And then he did it again.

More recently he’s been selling his future.

As I said, he’s one of the most interesting people online.  Never a dull day with Jason.

I was interested to get a hold of him and ask him the big questions of why he does what he does, and how he’s found his way into the quirky and fun loving online presence that he creates for himself.
