You ever have one of those friends or acquaintances who you just know will succeed? I’m sure you do. Bryan Harris is one of those people for me. This guy does not stop. He was an early member of Monthly1k and has gone on to be a complete beast creating content, successfully growing his business, and really making a name for himself.
I even asked him if he see’s his wife very much cause he always seems to be working and [...]

I asked: How can I take advantage of people who are super smart but can’t get an internship?

I was around college kids all the time (I was in college myself).
The kids wanted experience and something cool to put on their resume.
I’ve always wanted my own army.

But I figured it was worth seeing if that was the case or not.
With marketing / business / life, it’s helpful to test your assumptions to see for yourself.
So I posted this one tweet:
…Got me over 50 new subscribers (daily average is 15) to Okdork.
Since it worked on Twitter, here’s how I to get more subscribers from Facebook; I posted:
