ActiveRain, I thank you, and Seth Godin may never forgive you!

This was put together a lot quicker and a lot dirtier than the winning video, and leaves a bit to be desired in my opinion, but I wanted to get a "thank you" video message out to everyone who was involved in the contest. Whether you were a viewer, a commenter, a fellow video submitter, a judger, a picker, a grinner, a lover or a sinner...I want to express a sincere heartfelt thanks to all who participated. I feel like one of the luckiest guys in the world for the chance to spend a day with one of my business heroes, Seth Godin, in NYC. Thanks for encouraging my behavior and I will be sure to put together a video diary of my travels to New York. Enjoy the show!

PS- This video is about 2 minutes too long, and I apologize for that. But like TS Eliot said, "If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter." And my 15 minutes of fame is.... just.... about..... over......

Thanks everybody. In the words of one of my heroes Jerry Greenfield (for his business too, but mostly his products), "If it's not fun, why do it?" If anyone has any referrals up in the Boston area, please send them my way!
