Our social media buddy Zach Bussey is making a name for himself with his project to live life off of $12,000 in savings and whatever freebies his online presence get him.
He described his idea to us, just a few weeks old at the time, when we partied it up at the Bud Light event earlier this year, and I have to give him kudos for sticking with it as long as he has, not to mention taking it to the national news level.
In the latest development, a condo owner has decided to put Zach up in an empty condo for a week in exchange for blogging about the property. It’s one of the bigger perks in an otherwise tough year — food, clothes, and even a bed, have at times turned out to be luxuries.
I suspect I’ll bump into Zach at some event or another before this is all through, and I’ll definitely grill him on whether or not it was worth it. But if the purpose of this was to get exposure for potential future projects, which I suspect it was, the man has already found success.
