Mike Merrill is running his life like a business, literally. He has 320 shareholders who each have a stake in making his personal decisions for him, like whether he should go on a diet and if they approve of his girlfriend. He joins the TODAY team to talk about his experience.

There is a name for this kind of activity. It escapes me at the moment... It means selling yourself and has bad connotations...
