Here’s the deal, I got tagged to answer some questions by my friend Hallie. Being the amazing writer and blogger she is, I was intrigued. I’m also a sucker for answering questions. I’m more of the type to ask questions. Which is why I think I’m a good consultant. I help people figure out what they want by the questions I ask.
After reading the article Hallie was referring to — To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This — in the Times, and the subsequent article, No. 37: Big Wedding or Small, I was game. I skipped a few of the questions, but here are my answers. Maybe you’ll feel like you know me better after reading. Would love to hear some of your responses in the comments or if you do a post on this, please leave me a link in the comments!
Here we go — 25 Questions
Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?
I always think this question is really hard. I don’t know why, but right now my gut says Mark Cuban. Ya know, the billionaire from Shark Tank. If I could pick his brain for an hour I’d probably start shitting rainbows.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I actually think being famous would kinda suck. I like not having my photo taken by paparazzi or anyone with a cell phone when I’m out for a walk or at the grocery store with no makeup and greasy hair.
The ways that I’d love to be famous would be by inspiring and educating female entrepreneurs/women in business and for my creativity. I’m working on all of that.
Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?
If it’s a business call, I usually prepare for it, but the only thing I’ve rehearsed recently in my head is how I’d pitch Mark Cuban. Yes, I’m serious.
What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?
I’m going to do this for a non-workday — I’d be somewhere with warm weather and a beach (not too hot though). Wake up to the sunrise next to my husband, do something active with friends/family (hiking or some crazy activity), get a massage, have a long dinner with people I love the most — and then maybe some dancing.
When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
About an hour ago to Sara Bareilles singing Elton John’s Yellow Brick Road. I never really sing to anyone because I don’t have a good voice, but people might be in the room sometimes. However, I can rap some old school stuff from the ’90s…
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?
Mind for sure. Does anyone pick body?
Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?
I constantly tell my husband that we are going to die while embracing each other in our sleep. I’m going to continue to believe that. Continue reading…
