How to Not Come In Dead Last at a Bachelor Auction

by Larry Chiang on May 16, 2011

Larry Chiang writes about entrepreneurship and pre-entrepreneurship. He edits the Bloomberg BusinessWeek channel “What They Don’t Teach You at Business School”. After Chiang’s Harvard Law keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“ (the same title as his NY Times bestseller). If you read his scandalously awesome “What a Supermodel Can Teach a Stanford MBA” and “How to Get Man-Charm”, you will like his latest post:

How to Not Come In Dead Last at a Bachelor Auction

By Larry Chiang

I am horrified to be doing a bachelor auction.

Don’t get me wrong, I am comfortable with women in their 20s and 30s buying me. What I am scared of tremendously is coming in dead last…

Its for charity and the Guardsman is putting this on in SF at Ruby Skye.

Here is my proposed date package #1. I am calling it:
“Gossip Girls: Bachelor Date Package with Larry Chiang”
The write up is below and I am super open to getting feedback via email larry @Duck9 .com
Its Sept 8-12, 2011 (Thurs to Sun)

Get VIP treatment and behind the scenes access to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week that would make Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girls jealous.

You’ll slip backstage with Larry Chiang and get an incredible life experience at Lincoln Center in New York City.

Package includes access to shows like Diane Von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung, Betsey Johnson GStar Raw, etc.
Stay at the Chuck Bass hotel, “Empire” in a corner suite just across from Lincoln Center.
Hang out with male supermodels that IMG represents – He launched his NY Times bestseller from the runway thanks to his mentor’s organization, IMG.
Party crash with your celebrity wrangler, Larry Chiang, as you wiggle pass the velvet ropes. Examples include events hosted by Jeremy Piven, Tyra Banks, Chris Bosh.
Mercedes Benz VIP Suite provides refreshments and allow you intimate interactions.
American Express SkyBox allows private viewings provided Larry hasn’t worn out his welcome authoring too many credit card laws.

*** BONUS ***

a party invite for you…
