Man sells life on eBay -- the beginning of a career as an internet celebrity?
The story gets even cooler. When the sale closes, he'll embark on a new life and, yes -- he has a shameless publicity stunt for that too: 100Goals100Weeks.com outlines his plans for the next two years which include a pretty ambitious travel schedule: Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand and Las Vegas -- all in the first few months!
This is great evidence of the power of the internet to allow just about anyone to construct a bull crap career for themselves in the wake of a mid-life crisis: come up with a silly idea that will get sites like this one to write about you, start a website/blog about it, sell advertising on it, make YouTube videos, make money, get a book deal, etc. Brilliant! And harmless too!
Ian Usher seems to have claimed the sell your old life and start a new one niche, but I'm sure you can think of something equally inane to build a career with. Just hire a good publicist.
