Teen girl builds a Fiero, captivates the internet

A captivating story and great content are all you need. That’s right. Call it what you will… social media, content marketing, digital strategy… any of them apply. This is not just a great story to read (in real-time, I might add) it’s a great story to live. And that’s why I share it with you. It should provide ample evidence to anyone working to leverage good content to drive an audience.

In a nutshell, a Michigan dad and his then 12 year old daughter team up to teach her how to restore a 1984 Pontiac Fiero in time for her sweet sixteen.

I first heard this story on NPR June 17th, driving home from work no less.
