Work Happy Now was granted an interview with Steve Pavlina, the online Personal Development King. I just gave him that title, but I think most of us can agree that no one has more online “personal development” clout than Steve.
I was nervous. I wanted everything to go perfectly. My voice was a little shaky at the start. You’ll notice this when you listen to the first podcast. I calmed down after a few minutes and I delivered a pretty good interview.
I told my wife that I probably would put Steve at the top of my list of famous people to interview.
“What about Obama?” she asked.
“Sure, I would love to interview Obama, but interviewing Steve meant more to me. I would probably get more readers with an Obama interview, but that doesn’t matter. I’ve been following Steve’s blog for almost three years,” I replied.
“Wow! You really enjoyed talking with him.”
“Yeah, he’s down to earth and intelligent. I couldn’t have asked for a better interview.”
“You’ve worked hard for this. I’m proud of you.”
I broke the interview down into five parts:
The sound quality isn’t the greatest since I recorded it using Skype. I had to increase the volume on Steve’s answers so it matched my volume. It’s not a perfect recording, but I’m sure you’ll find it interesting. Steve’s answers are honest and unique.
Enjoy! I know I did.
Check out my review of Steve’s book Personal Development for Smart People.
