daily bizcard 048: jeremy schoemaker

Today’s “Daily Bizcard”, “Recession?” goes to affiliate marketing maven, Jeremy Schoemaker, the fellow behind Shoemoney.com. Jeremy’s done very well. Apparently that wasn’t always the case. One day it seems that some sort of switch went off inside his head and since then, there’s been no looking back. I like it when switches go off. Makes […]

Testimonials

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

The New Republic
Lydia Depillis

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
