News & Opinion: I've Seen a Lot of Famous People Naked-- by Jake Steinfeld

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:43 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Jake Steinfeld, of Body by Jake fame, has a new book out - I've Seen a Lot of Famous People Naked, and They've Got Nothing On You. It is a book about success, motivation, and entrepreneurship.

There are a couple of cool things he is doing to promote the book. First, Jake has an audioblog. He is using and leaves one to three minute audio pieces. I think it is a great use of the technology and allows Jake's fans to get a dose of him every day.

The second thing is a little bigger. Today, Jake was on Fox & Friends (that is what started this whole post) and he announced the Live Your Dream Contest to go with the book. He is going to giveaway $200,000 to the best business idea he sees submitted for the contest. The winner also get $50,000 worth of flight time from Marquis Jet.
