My Life As Lizza

Where the world is my stage, soapbox or runway…depending on the day

It’s never too late for a second chance…

Sometimes second chances come in the most unusual packages…and thanks to the power of social media, YouTube to be exact, Ted Williams has gone from homeless to priceless. The video has officially gone viral and Ted is already booked on CNN and The Today Show tomorrow…

Lessons Learned:

1. Always be ready to take the opportunities that come your way!

2. Don’t be scared to be vulnerable or to ask for what you need

3. Embrace the power of social media

4. Sometimes the best publicity doesn’t even require a publicist and it can be FREE

5. Never give up on your dreams because you never know when they are going to come true!!



[Update- 1/7/10] The original video uploaded by Columbus Dispatch was pulled down by them as they were upset that the video had gone viral but they weren’t receiving credit. But the YouTube community stepped up right away and has uploaded the video countless times. I chose to embed this one as it gives props back to Columbus Dispatch. Enjoy!
