Questions to ask in an interview:
- You talk a lot about "authentic business" -- define that for us and how that's different from simply "business"?
- What about "authentic marketing" -- how is that different from how marketing is usually done?
You've pioneered the idea of "Joyful productivity" -- define that for us, and also, what aspect of that is particularly alive for you at this time?
- If you could teach a masterclass to succeed with an authentic business, what might it be about? (The 111 formula.) Next question: describe the 111 formula in as much detail as we have time for.
And, you can ask me anything else -- no question is off limits :)
