Watch The Nametag Guy on ABC’s 20/20!

OK. I’ve kept it a secret for three months…

I’M GOING TO BE ON 20/20!!!

I got the call in March. One of their producers read my article, How to become the Luckiest Person You Know.

HERE’S THE BEST PART: their upcoming episode is all about (get this) … people who create their own luck!

That’s me!

Anyway, their crew flew down from New York City, came to my office, sat in the audience of one of my speeches … even rigged me up with “Nametag Cam!”

Sure, they completely took over my entire office. But it was a blast. And I’m excited to see how the segment turns out.

(Boy, ABC brings a lot of gear, huh?)

REMEMBER: tune in THIS FRIDAY, June 15th on ABC’s 20/20 at 10 PM Eastern!

And if you can’t watch it, don’t worry … it’ll be on YouTube by next week.

ONE FINAL NOTE: you’re probably wondering, “How in the world did you get on 20/20?”

Check this out.

In March, 20/20 online posted this page.

It’s a online form.

You fill it out, share your “lucky” story and HOPE that 20/20 maybe calls you back.

Who knows how many thousands of other people you’re competing with?

I guess you could say it would be “lucky” if you got the call.

That is, if you actually believed in luck.

Which I don’t.

That’s why I NEVER filled anything out.

And miraculously, they called me.

Here’s why…

Because the producer, who was creating a piece about “lucky people,” went onto Google and did a search on the exact phrase “the luckiest person you know.”

And out of 539,000 pages, guess who’s article came up first AND second?


1. Writing is the basis of all wealth.
2. It ain’t about luck.
3. Stick yourself out there; get them to come to you.

Who’s the luckiest person you know?

What do they do that nobody else does?

The Nametag Guy is featured in the premiere issue of Escaping Adulthood!

Growing up?

Once a kid, always a kid.

And my friends Kim and Jason agree. They’re two of the coolest, most creative and folks I know.

That’s why I’m proud to be featured in their brand-spankin’ new publication, Escape Adulthood.

Download a PDF of the issue here.

They even included a picture from when I was seven years old! Try not to laugh too hard…

What’s your favorite childlike quality … to practice as an adult?

Happy Nametag Day Everybody!

For the second year in a row, Colchester, CT is celebrating Annual Nametag Day!

Jason Cohen and I (mainly Jay) started this holiday back in 2006.

This year we actually got a decent amount of local press, thanks to all the hype around my new friend Joe Porcelli from Neighbors for Neighbors who (unrelated, believe it or not) wore a nametag every day for the past year. Way to go Joe!

In order to make it as easy as possible for people to get involved, the Wyndham Price Agency and the Norwich Bulletin are both providing free nametags, which will be available for pickup Thursday through Tuesday, January 18th – 23rd, at many locations around town, including Colchester Parks & Recreation and a number of local businesses.

Also, this is pretty cool:

The Norwich Bulletin will attach a fantastic nametag ready to use right on their front page! There will also be a complimentary edition of the Norwich Bulletin delivered to all non-subscribers in Colchester. Everyone in Colchester will receive a nametag and a Norwich Bulletin on either January 20th or January 22nd.

Nametags and special promotions will be available at many supporting businesses. See the growing list below!

The fun does not end there! Colchester Parks & Recreation will be hosting a wrap up Nametag Day event on Tuesday, January 23rd from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Colchester Youth Center located on Norwich Ave. Come and share your unique experiences of wearing the nametag for a day and meet new people and join us for some “getting to know you” type activities!

Way to go, Colchester. Hopefully more cities will follow suit!

Would you and your town want to participate in Annual Nametag Day?

If you’d like to be a participating city for Nametag Day ’08, please contact Jason Cohen at Colchester Parks & Recreation.
