If you haven't been here before, or if you're generally confused by the project, please read this.

To answer the most common immediate questions:

Yes, this is for real.

No, this isn't some publicity stunt.   No, this isn't a gimmick to get you to send me money.

I really am in New York.  I really did show up here with a hundred dollars.  I really didn't set anything up in advance, and I really have built a staff of people up who are working hard for me.  I really am working on a new product; I really do think it has a multimillion dollar selling potential, and I really do intend to sell the entire product line to another company by July 16. 

I am filming as I go.  I'm finding that everyone I meet is interested in my story, and that they all have their own stories.  Most of them want to talk about the state of America right now, and so do I.

That's really what this project is about.  I'm not really here to accrue wealth, I'm here to see if there is still capacity for Americans to change their fate.  I'm here, looking for opportunity.

And along with it, I'm finding a great wealth of charity in the hearts of New Yorkers.
