If you have ever wanted to control someone else’s life now is your time. One man from Portland is literally selling shares of himself and he’s been doing it for years. He gives the shareholder’s the unique opportunity to have the final say in the major life decisions he needs to make.
Mike Merill started acting on his oddly brilliant idea when he was 30 years old back in 2008. At first he put up for online auction 100,000 shares of himself at the price of $1 a share. Initially, he was able to sell 929 shares. The shareholders were also buying into the profits Mike made outside of his daily job.
What Mike did not anticipate at all was that the shareholders would start watching very closely their investment. Suddenly, they began taking part in his life’s choices. Mike assumed that the shareholder’s would make really smart decisions for him so he decided to grant them this opportunity. The shareholders would vote on any major life decision Mike needed to make.
In the course of a couple of years Mike switched his political beliefs from a Democrat to a Republican. They forbade him from eating meat and even had him break up with his girlfriend.
Mike states he really enjoys the way he chose to live and that it’s quite fun to have your life dictated by people who have invested in you. His shares a going strong and you can also invest in Mike Merill from Portland.
