Lindsey Mountford is one of the case studies in Screw Work Let's Play. After graduating, she fell into some pretty miserable sales jobs and ended up frittering away time at work playing around on Facebook and YouTube – so she went out and found a way to get paid to do exactly that.
“I came to work for a small start-up company that runs the website viralvideochart.com and also distributes videos around the web, giving them the best chance of 'going viral.' I have to know about viral marketing and all the latest trends in social media so now I get paid to spend time on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and blogs!"
She loves the job and the people and she also has time spare to work on her novel.
