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?













LESSONS LEARNED:

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.

LET ME ASK YA THIS...
Who's the luckiest person you know?

LET ME SUGGEST THIS...
What do they do that nobody else does?
