------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Q1) When did you first realize you had the ShalerJump gift?

 

Answer:

I jumped after someone else, who did not end up getting his own ____Jump. It was important that the first one was signature.. I still use it as my avatar and would definitely be the best shot for the cover of the "ShalerJump Book" (if ever created)

 

Q2) How has the ShalerJump helped you in everyday life?

 

Answer:

The ShalerJump serves as an extra place to go to see me on the web, so it strengthens the brand of "Brian Shaler" and assists with name recognition. It is also a conversation piece and can help me inspire those around me.

 

Q3) What advice or secrets do you have for others wishing to obtain

their own "NAMEWhatever"

 

Answer:

If anyone wants to make a "Name[Action] "of their own, they definitely need to make at least one that grabs the user's attention, then immediately follow it up with some variety. After the first instance, it is honestly quantity over quality that will strengthen the brand.

 

Thanks Brian for answering these tough questions. I hope to apply some of your ideas to help strengthen the ACME brand.
