An Interview with Emmanuelle Chriqui; Actress, Philanthropist, and Star of the Show/Movie ‘Entourage’

It has been a while since I have last interviewed someone who inspired me. You see, I am a big believer in learning from amazing people and I decided long ago that interviewing some amazing folks would be the best way to accomplish that. Except how does a simple guy like myself get to interview legendary human beings like Woz, Marc Andreessen, and all the other epic people I’ve interviewed? Social media, of course.

 

An Interview with Saul Singer, Co-Author of the Book ‘Startup Nation’ and One of Israel’s Greatest Thinkers

Over the years, I have done quite a few killer interviews and I am very proud of the long list. Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor.

 

An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer.

 

How it Happened and What it Was Like to Spend Two Hours with Steve Wozniak, Founder of Apple

Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try and reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz.

 

An Interview with the Legendary Damian Burns, Google’s Director of Global Strategic Partnerships

As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good.

 

The Two Words You Need to Know in Order to Effectively Market your Brand on the Web in 2014

So I was asked to come speak at a Microsoft Bispark event last week. The topic I chose was how to market your brand in 2014. I know, shocker. The thing is, I genuinely believe that my whole “philosophy” in marketing can be summed up in two words. Of course, you are going to have to watch the entire speech to learn what the two words are.
