Winsky Norceide ‘13, recently started his own entrepreneurial business but not necessarily using his Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and minors in Communications, Law and Business, and Mathematics. Norceide’s business is a web show he created called #TheMUSEUM. The purpose of the show is to attempt to bring the local talent community, especially in the Boston area, together in his own fashion.
#TheMUSEUM has a monthly photo contest where viewers can Google a picture for a chance to win $100 and six viewers are chosen each month for the prize of $100. Viewers are not restricted to only Google and pictures of artwork may be used.
#TheMUSEUM invites a feature on to the show, usually a Boston talent, including but not limited to a musician, clothing designer, or comedian, to tell the audience exactly what to go find for #TheMUSEUM. The steps to enter the contest are the following:
- Follow the Web Show on their social media platforms (Instagram & Twitter)
- Subscribe on Youtube
- Have a PayPal account
- Send in your picture to their email
Norceide explained how easy it takes to enter the contest.
“Roughly five minutes of someone’s time could win them $100 and that’s every month that they can attempt this,” said Norceide. “This is great for college students, especially. Being a Laser alum, I know what the financial struggles are like for the normal college student. On top of that students would get a peek at the various talent lanes Boston has to offer since Lasell is so close.”
“Lasell is a very decorative school har- boring many talents itself,” said Norceide. “Not only would the students be able to finally use Google to earn extra pocket money, but it would be a platform to be able to tell people about what they have going on too. I’ve run into a few students telling me about their up and coming clothing line.”
#TheMUSEUM currently has over 300 followers on Twitter and subscribers on YouTube and over 1,000 followers on Instagram. Norcedide hopes to have a website running January 1 to start off the new year.
