About a year ago, I was contacted by a guy on twitter named Torrey McGraw (sounds like a country singer, right). At the time, he pitched an interview idea for me to talk in-depth about my company and how (and why) I created it. My gut thought was “who the hell would want to listen to me talk about business?” Also, I didn’t know Torrey from Adam. Could he be trying to get me on live video and do the okie-doke with some gag (this actually happened before…long story)?? But I trusted my gut and trusted Torrey, and did it.
12 months later, Torrey (who has now become a good friend and to my knowledge can’t sing a lick) tells me our interview was one of the most popular ever done on his Grind and Thrive site. Also, to keep it real, I’m very passionate about entrepreneurship (hell, I’m Jamaican, so I have to be). What this interview did for me was gave me the confidence to finally speak up about something other than romantic relationships.
I just gave the interview another listen and everything in it is applicable to today. If you’re searching for your passion, we talked about it! If you’re wanting tips on branding & building a business, it’s all in there! It’s also amazing to see me talk about ideas and dreams (a year ago) that are coming to fruition now (hmmm, laws of attraction).
I encourage you to grab a notepad and something good to drink like this…and check out this interview above.
