Interview Someone You Love

When I first got to know about Brendon Burchard through one of his inspirational videos posted on YouTube, I came across this video which mention about interviewing the person you loved most before you never really get to see them again. I’ve always dreamt of interviewing famous gorgeous people who are already under the limelight but I’ve never thought of interviewing ordinary people whom I loved the most. They, too, would be leaving a legacy in this world. If you think about it, they should be the most important people in your life, not Britney Spears, Bill Gates or Lee Kuan Yew. I was intrigued by this unique perspective of Brendon and decides to embark on this little project of mine to conduct interviews with the people I love most. It’s the first day of 2015 and I want to start the ball rolling by doing an interview with myself. 

Below are the 20 questions extracted from Life Interview Guide by Brendon Burchard.
