Of course this applies after having made the TOP 50.  Seems many were hung up on thinking success will be based upon video views or how many friends clicked your clip.  Well, unless all those ‘friends’ are buying a bottle or case of Murphy Goode as well (not likely) then it doesn’t mean a whole lot at this point I’m betting.  Here are the facts Jack straight from the Goode book;

1.  You must be at least 21 years of age.

2. Must meet the skills and qualifications of the job.

3. You must provide documentary evidence of your identity and that you are eligible to be employed in the United States.

Number 13 is the kicker.  Let’s hope of course there is a champion among us who will change the way wine is marketed online forever!  Or at least for 6 months. 🙂

Cheers!
