34 Questions

The other day I asked whether we could consider ourselves good marketers if we couldn’t get our friends and family to sign up for our stuff, or to subscribe to our blogs and the like. Tonight, I’m going to be somewhat thankful that most of them don’t subscribe.

Many of us don’t dare take the opportunity to answer questions about ourselves to begin with, let alone in person. Our friend John has been doing a series of questions that he’s been answering on his blog John Dilbeck & Friends over the past few weeks, and I’ve been examining myself along with him.

Tonight, I learned about a blog from Kristi’s Fetching Friday post on her Kikolani blog that had posted 33 Questions that actually turned out to be 34 questions, a blog called Dragosroua. I decided to go ahead and answer these questions based on how I’m feeling at the present moment after a pretty good Friday; honesty is my thing, even as it pertains to myself.

I doubt many folks will want to try this one, but hey, I have no fear:

1. What Do You Do For A Living?

    1. Thanks Rummuser. I figure why do anything if I’m not going to be honest about it. No one is fooled but me.

  1. Hi Mitch

    V uncomfortable when you have to answer questions about yourself and tell the world I think…….

    Just like my 25 things….
    .-= Peter Davies´s last blog ..Does anyone have any knowledge regarding worldprofit.com? =-.

    1. Hi Peter,

      It might or might not be uncomfortable. My answers were kind of tough, but answers like what Rummuser gave paints a much different picture.

  2. Thing is, Dennis, if I’m not going to take it seriously, why do it in the first place? Honest to the end; that’s me.

  3. Hey Mitch,

    Thanks for answering those questions from my blog. The reason behind launching this type of interview was a strong belief that everybody on this planet is important. Everybody has something important to share. Everybody counts.

    And you proved this with your answers, more than once.

    Thank you 🙂
    .-= Dragos Roua´s last blog ..How To Be Productive without Becoming a Productivity Freak =-.

    1. No, thank you Dragos, for putting it up in the first place. I was glad to share my answers, and hopefully more than one person whosaw this post shared theirs also.

  4. Wow, Mitch.

    Those are some tough questions to answer.

    I just now noticed this post from a link in the dashboard of my blog. I was so sick back in November that it was like blundering through a fog and I missed a lot of things I normally do on a regular basis.

    Now that I’m thinking pretty straight, again, I plan to resume those questions from Think and Grow Rich and finish that series.

    I’m not sure I want to answer some of the questions in this list, but I might — after I’m feeling much better.

    Thanks for the link, even if I did wait a long time to see it. (grin)

    Act on your dream!


    1. Take your time, John. As you noticed, no one else had the guts to try it. lol Glad you’re starting to feel better.
