Not just 50 states: when my journey made global news, people from many countries emailed encouragement and appreciation.

“I just saw you on TV2 Danish News. I just wanted to let you know that I admire your mission. Your middle name should be ‘inspiration'." --Michael from Denmark

“I moved to North Carolina from South Korea because I saw you on the national news and you inspired me to take risks and create new opportunities. You have changed my life.” --Hyoen from South Korea

“I want to say that you are a great man. I am 23 years old.  I will graduate, but still looking for a job. I always surf the internet and found an article about you. When I read the article, I thought I was stupid and still a child. Now I can do anything because I am still a young and important man. Thank you for giving confidence to me. I pray for you.” --Byeong from South Korea

“Today I saw your history on TV and think you’re a great example that anything is possible.” --Kate from Ecuador

“I can’t wait to read the book!” --Kyra Phillips, CNN

“It’s not every day that you meet a kid who is so disgusted with the job market that he decides to pack up and pursue 50 different jobs in 50 different states. This morning, I talked to a remarkable young man named Daniel Seddiqui, a professional job hopper, who graduated from USC and got rejected from over 40 job interviews. He is a perfect example of persistence, perseverance, all of the above.” --Alexis Glick, Fox News

“Your experience could serve as the great example of human power under the economic crisis in process around the world! Also you demonstrated the possibilities of american way of life - now huge in Russia. In Siberia, where I am living, this experience of such mobile working is impossible. But we are hoping that you personally can show [a] good example of optimism and skill for our young people.” --Irina from Russia
