Have you seen this video yet about Caine’s Arcade? Caine is a kid who designed and built his own arcade games out of cardboard. Then he sat around waiting for customers to play his games, long enough that it became a standing joke in the family.
Then one day he got a customer…
It’s not just his creativity which impresses me. It’s the persistence. How many people would give up when their business was so hard to get started? Now his arcade has a Twitter account, Facebook page, and people are donating money to a college fund for him. It’s really something to check out.
I hope Caine continues with his creative, entrepreneurial efforts. He’s off to a great start.
As for the rest of us, learn the power of Facebook and Reddit. We can’t all have this kind of success with social media, but it’s amazing when it happens.
