Social Media Experts: Would You Accept This Challenge?

A $100,000,000 brand that generates $7,000,000 of pre-tax profit offers you a challenge.
  • You will quit whatever job you have, and you will work for free for one year. You will also pay the company a $5,000 non-refundable deposit.
  • You get to implement whatever social media marketing program you want to implement. No strings, no interference, you're the boss.
  • At the end of twelve months, you and the company get to split all of the profit generated by your marketing program, 50% / 50%.
Do you quit your job, pay the non-refundable deposit, and accept this challenge?

If you're a social media expert, and you truly believe in your field of study, and you answer "no", please explain your answer. Under what terms would you say "yes"?
