So this makes no sense: Friendly neighborhood sports blogger gets 30 minutes to talk capital B Business with the world’s most renowned business and financial personality, Jim Cramer.
It’s all part of new initiative by Philly Mag’s BizPhilly called The Hookup, where they “pair mentors with successful business people so they can share lessons learned and help entrepreneurs get to the next step.” I had to send in a two-minute video pitch (0% chance I’m posting that here for the mongrel commenters) describing the business, challenges faced, and questions I’d want to ask Jim (who, among his many other accomplishments, founded the incredibly successful TheStreet.com in 1996). Today, BizPhilly editor Jared Shelly announced that I won.
So, to recap: A couple of months ago, during his 10th anniversary show, Jim talked to Tim Cook, the CEO of the most valuable company in the history of Earth – Apple – and soon, he’ll talk to me about how to better monetize selfie videos and grow my empire that’s constructed atop layers of sophomoric innuendo. God bless the USA. GET ME GREENWOOD:
