It's 2012... May I interview you about your freakishly cool life?

Recently... DMJuice came to me to ask how I helped people to set goals without being "too cheesy" or "Tony-Robbins-esque." 

They wanted their readers to think about their dreams and goals but they also wanted people to have some fun.

So I said, "How about an interview?"

They said, "Well that's why we're talking.  Right?  An interview with you about helping people set goals?"Interview

I corrected them and said, "No I'm talking about a strategy called 'the interview."'

Before the conversation escalated into a bad Abbott and Costello routine I explained that I often have new coaching clients go through a process that's fun but it also gets people thinking about their dreams and goals.

I call it simply 'the interview.'

What do you say?  Are you game?

So imagine that it's 2012 and a reporter is coming to interview you.  She's sent you the following questions to prepare you.

Now your job is to sit... relax... dream BIG and answer them as if your wildest dreams have some true.

Sound like fun?  Well, dig in.

1. I have heard you have a great workspace.  Describe what I'm going to see and experience when I come to see you.

2. I have heard it's been an amazing ride.  Tell me about where you started and what's happened over the past 5 years.

3. I have talked to some of your (employees/team mates) and they LOVE working (for/with) you.  How many people do you (employ/work with) and why is it such a great place to work?

4.  What products/services/offerings are you most excited about?

5. Looking back over the last 5 years, what would you say has brought you the most joy?

Okay, there are more questions but I'll stop there for now.

Dig in.  Take the challenge.  Get ready for the interview.

Oh and hey... maybe if you write it down and then put a little strategy behind your answers they might just play out by 2012! 

How cool would that be?

Maybe you'll hear an actual reporter say "Excuse me... May I interview you about your freakishly cool life?"
