Build An Amazing Project That Attracts A-Listers – With Jack Liu

Have you ever wanted to create something amazing, whether it be a project, event, or otherwise, but got discouraged because you didn’t think you could do it alone? If so, you need to listen to this interview I did with Jack Liu, the owner of Teen Business Forum and found of the Teen Business Summit.

Jack is a former software engineer who now spends his days connecting with young entrepreneurs and helping them reach their goals. His latest venture? The Teen Business Summit – a global conference that will provide inspiration and essential knowledge to anyone with a decent internet connection. Jack has worked tirelessly to bring on some A-List talent for the conference, including former Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki, and Matt Mickiewicz, the founder of Sitepoint, 99Designs, and Flippa.

Jack has some great insight on how to build a community and a great event. If you’re feeling in the dark when it comes to online marketing or social media, he has some fantastic experience to share.

Unfortunately, I’m still working out the kinks with the technology I use for interviewing. After a good three hours of editing, I decided this interview would be best as an audio-only affair. However, none of the content is lost due to the medium transition, so no worries!

Interview with Jack Liu, Founder of Teen Business Forum by Thomas Frank

Here are some takeaways from the interview:

  • Facebook and LinkedIn are great places to market your content; Twitter is better for initiating relationships with interested people.
  • If you want to make great connections, ask people if you can interview them. This is really easy to do if they have a book coming out.
  • Make sure you watch the Teen Business Summit!
