This weekend I was fortunate enough to get an opportunity to help Ivan Misner, the founder of BNI, personally. I was CC’d on an email looking for anyone that could help connect him with someone at Facebook because his personal account had been frozen and he was impersonating Ivan Misner. Crazy right? I thought I had a connection that could help but that didn’t pan out. However I did have an idea. Here is what I sent Ivan on a whim;
If we can’t get access to the account through normal channels today, I suggest turning this into a social media exposure opportunity. We can create “Free Misner‘s Account” images and get all of BNI to share them on Facebook. I think it would lead to the account being released, create additional exposure for BNI, and generate possible media interest.
