Empire Avenue Wisdom 032 – Pay It Forward

by THE INFLUENCIER on May 14, 2011 •  4 comments

Pay it Forward During [X]PENDAPALOOZA

The members (allegedly) of a group ([X]) that may (or may not) exist are sponsoring a special Empire Avenue event today (for the next few hours). During [X]PENDAPLOOZA, the likes of  John (allegedly) Gushue (e)GUSHUE, Cindy (allegedly) Smith (e)REIGN,  Darren (allegedly) MacEachern (e)ANGLER, Omar (allegedly) Habayeb (e)OKMMH, Ben (allegedly) Arledge (e)BEN, Michael (allegedly) Walker (e)EDM, Adriel (allegedly) Hampton (e)ADRIEL, and others (allegedly) are buying (big) into anyone who asks (for real). In exchange, you are encouraged to pay it forward and use the eaves you receive to build community by investing in others, making new connections, and meeting new people, rather than reciprocating a buy back in these generous (very) folks.

The first two hours of [X]pendapalooza have been insane, with millions of eaves flying back and forth across Empire Avenue in new investments. To join in the fun, post your Ticker in the [X]Bar Facebook Group [X]pendapalooza thread and visit the [X]Bar Chat on Empire Avenue.

New to Empire Avenue? Want to understand better what Empire Avenue is all about? Are you competitive and want to see your share price rise? Are you a social addict and want to make connections? Building your brand and not sure if Empire Avenue has got the goods? Here’s a tip: Chat. But Chat Wisely.

Now, hold on a second. I know, some of you have tried the Empire Ave Chat feature and have been totally turned off by the inordinate amounts of chat spammers shouting “BUY ME!!!” or are disgusted by folks who are missing the point of “true networking” by trading LinkedIn follows. Yes, I’m looking at you, Irene Koehler (e)IRENEKOEHLER.

Empire Avenue Limited Edition 17,500th Share of WRITERTHE 17,500th Share of Brent Knowles (e)WRITER has been added to THE VAULT. The story of how THE INFLUENCIER acquired this exquisite limited edition share is quite the yarn, filled with drama & intrigue, heroes & villains, and action & adventure at every turn. It is a tale that begs the telling…

Chapter I:

IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the season of Light, it was the season of (e)DARKness, it was the (e)SPRING of hope, it was the winter of despair, with the advent of DUBLIN we had everything before us, and with the rumors of ERINDALE, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.

The Darker Side of Empire Avenue

“The streets of Empire Avenue are paved in gold,” they say. “It’s just a game. Try it, you’ll like it,” they say, delicately prodding you with their satiny smooth, velvety voices. “Go on, pick a ticker, it’ll be fun,” they say, gently persuading, smelling like a mix between warm chocolate chip cookies, a rich German lager, and a juicy char-grilled steak…
