Need some good #LaborDayWeekend reading? If you buy my book in paperback on Amazon, you can get the Kindle edition for only 99 cents. How cool is that? http://amzn.to/1iiTyl3

Sweet edit from our #TahoeSkiBu  insider Brandon Bies at +Northstar California Resort  on March 2, 2015. #LakeTahoe   #snowboarding   #Tahoe   #TahoeNorth  

Back in the day when iPods were new and the only "smartphone" was a clunky Blackberry, I found a way I could get almost anyone to respond to me, no matter how important or influential or high-ranking that person was. I'd buy an iPod shuffle and record in as brief a recording as possible (never more than 7 minutes) what I was trying to communicate with them and load my message onto the iPod. I'd then write a quick note, acknowledge how busy they were, and ask them that the next time they were getting on the treadmill or on a flight to listen to my message. I'd close the note saying the iPod was my gift to them just for hearing me out. Then I'd FedEx it off to them.

Obviously, in a day when everyone has a smartphone, this doesn't work anymore. (Didn't Apple discontinue the Shuffle anyway?). And I no longer have a magic bullet. Does anyone have ideas or tips or examples of different things you've done to get through to hard to get through to people?
