one of the challenges of doing a lot of interviews is that inevitably I am asked different versions of the same questions over and over again. For the first time in a long time I can say I actually got asked unique questions that put a smile on my face. They were short. Simple. To the point. They were perfect for the reporters audience.
Shockingly I had never been asked any of them before.
Here it is
Dear Mr. Cuban,
My name is Mauricio Vazquez. Today you visited Medrano Middle School to talk to over 100 business students (thank you by the way). I’m a reporter for the school newspaper and we would be incredibly thankful if you could answer a few questions for an interview. If you choose to do so, the segment would be featured in the April issue. Please answer the following questions in however many words you feel is enough and send it to Mrs. Hopkins.
What’s the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
What’s the one word you are guilty of using too often?
What is the last thing you searched on Google?
Who is the last person that called or texted you?
What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?
What TV show should everyone be watching?
What’s the first CD you bought?
What is the one food you cannot resist?
What music are you currently listening to?
What movie makes you laugh the most?
What drives you absolutely crazy?
If you do not feel comfortable answering one of the questions above, by all means do not answer it. It was a honor being able to meet you. You are a inspiration to people from all walks of life.
