Vote for Scott's Manifesto on ChangeThis!

ChangeThis is creating a new kind of media. A form of media that uses existing tools (like PDFs, blogs and the web) to challenge the way ideas are created and spread.

And just like them, I too am on a mission to spread important ideas and change minds. That's why I need your help:

Please vote for my manifesto!

(It's called, not surprisingly, The Power of Approachability.)

It takes no more than 25 seconds to read and 3 seconds to vote. And all you have to do is click YES! Write this manifesto! no later than April 20th.

If enough people vote, I will be approved to write a manifesto based on the following proposal:

The Power of Approachability
Approachability is a way of life that enables people & companies to magnetize more opportunities, more mutually valuable relationships and more business. The word derives from the Latin verb "apropriare" or "to come nearer to," which means it's proactive AND reactive; it's about stepping onto someone else's front porch and it's about welcoming someone onto your front porch. For PEOPLE, approachability is building social capital, what you say, what you don't say, maintaining authenticity, being easily reached, openness of personal space and openness of mind and heart. For COMPANIES, approachability is being "that guy," owning a word, doing something cool, being unforgettable, telling your story, creating fans (not customers) and marketing yourself daily. ULTIMATELY, approachability works because confidence is king; nice always wins; and you can't afford to miss any more opportunities. From a brief hello to a deep conversation to a friendship, you're always richer because of it.


Thanks for your help!

LET ME ASK YA THIS...

What would your manifesto be about?
