Teaching is the best way to learn.
Here are some things you should teach as soon as you get the chance.
1. Teach your grandmother how to play a social or casual game on Facebook. Seriously. Pay attention to how the game creators try to get you to keep playing longer than you should. Pay attention to how the game creators try and get you to shell out some real money and make you feel good about it in the process.
2. Teach your younger cousin how to make and buy ads on Google or Facebook. Work together to pick a product or something to advertise. It could be as simple as his best comic book. Put it up on eBay or run a manual auction on Squidoo. Think through the process. Who are you trying to reach with these ads? Are they searching for your product? Do they fit within certain age, income, geographic, or gender categories?
3. Teach a friend how to be a Linchpin. Share your copy of Linchpin. Take on the role of coach. Transfer emotion and logic. Be persuasive. What are your friend's strengths? What makes her unique and remarkable? How do they come to see that in themselves and what do they need to ship?
