Drew Sells Out is an ever-evolving project.
The guise of becoming the most sponsored man in the world is a wonderful thing, and I do genuinely aspire to achieve that goal. It's the easiest net to cast over the project.
But after the first run of this project (I paused because I ran out of money and needed to find a way to pay for life) and receiving a year's supply of protein powder/436 bags of sunflower seeds, I realized I didn’t need that many of those things.
My expenses are really low right now: I live in a van, I don’t have kids or a family, and I love price/taste of a veggie egg scramble so much that I can eat it every day.
But I really loved contacting companies and the idea of traveling around and interviewing people. And everything is way more fun when you share it. So then the idea became, "What if I could just share my sponsorships with the people who follow along?" I've played around with the phrases "the world's first crowdsourced influencer," "a modern day Robinhood," and "the human kickstarter" because I want to use the money from sponsorships to help people plant cool businesses and ideas all over the world.
The premise is that the more attention paid to DSO, the more cool stuff we can give away to people. Also, when a company sponsors me, they give 10% to the DSO fund!
