Renowned SEO expert Mike Munter recently interviewed Kimra Bettasso on his website Inspirery. In the interview Munter digs right in and asks the tough questions.
When asked about her success, Kimra Bettasso said,
I have always been committed to generating the best possible results for the clients I work with. I think the clients recognize that I am genuinely interested in securing their financial future, and this has helped to generate further interest in the services the company provides.
Having a great set of interview questions is evident from both Munter and Hirsch as the both excel in their respective industries.
Right when I begin to think being asked into an interview with ideamensch.com couldn’t be more exciting and I couldn’t be more honored, I am then asked in for yet another interview with inspirery.com! Words can’t begin to express my gratitude to the fine people at inspirery.com who have dedicated much of their time and their lives into, obviously, inspiring their readers. The people invited in for an interview are considered to be some of the most inspirational people having taken their struggles and turned them around into victories and inspirery.com wants to learn more about them.
As most people have asked for, I will tell my experience with inspirery.com and any questions I have received will be addressed. Where to begin? First of all, the interview process isn’t at all stressful and you don’t have to know how to ace a ton of nearly impossible questions. The questions are about you and what you have accomplished. They are interested in who you are and what you have done. Where ideamensch.com asked me different questions dealing in different areas that were scattered around different topics, inspirery.com was very focused on me and my business, Slaske Building Company, which thankfully is a topic I know so much about!
As I have mentioned before, individuals who have done what others dream of, such as starting a business or even conquering poverty and homelessness and have a story of a victorious battle against the odds of this world are usually the ones inspirery.com calls into interview. While I didn’t have a super impressive story, I have a super impressive business that was started from the ground up and it showed everyone that if it is possible for me, it can be possible for you. This was good enough for the fine folks at inspirery.com.
As for questions about the interview, the most interesting question I have received was, “What was your favorite question inspirery.com had to ask?” It was a simple answer. My favorite question was, “What is the most important lesson you have learned as an entrepreneur?” The reason why this is my favorite question was because it asked me what I learned. When I would get in trouble as a child, I would be punished and near the end of the day, my dad would ask me, “What have you learned?” He knew that if I didn’t know, there would be a great chance that I would need to be disciplined again because I didn’t understand why I was punished and I never learned anything. In the same sense, the lessons I have learned as an entrepreneur serve as wisdom for anyone else. It is, to me, a high honor when asked what I have learned just as inspirery.com has asked. It tells me they are interested in my knowledge and they look up to me as a business professional.
Just recently, I was featured on ideamensch.com and honestly it’s an honor and a privilege to be interviewed. When someone calls you to schedule an interview with you, no matter what the reason is, they are investing a large chunk of their time into you and asking for a chunk of yours. When you are asked for an interview, they are interested in picking your mind, learning about more of who you are, how you think and what you are all about. It is an honor indeed.
In my interview with ideamensch.com, I was asked a great deal of questions ranging from my Slaske Building company to my experiences from the past. Ideamensch.com always holds the their interviews with poise and professionalism. The quality of questions asked from the interview team are always checked, double checked and filtered by what is important. I can guarantee that every question asked has a purpose behind it. For example, ideamensch.com asked me what was the best $100 I have recently spend and why? You can get a decent idea of what type of person someone is by what they spend large amounts of money on and their motive behind that action. In my case, I love tools and gadgets that well help me do my job better, so I purchased the Wavetek Meterman 37XR multimeter which is a true RMS meter with an optical PC interface for electronics troubleshooting at the bench or job site. I spend to be productive.
After my interview, I’ve had multiple people ask what does it take to turn out a successful interview? One thing I can recommend that seems to work wonders for me is to be honest, be open and just tell the truth. They are interested in you, so why would you lie in the first place? Honesty has amazing returns and people will usually thank you graciously for being honest. Being open means to be open to answer whatever questions may come your way. You never really know what’s coming. If you don’t know the answer, don’t try to make something else and run the risk of looking foolish. This goes back to the trait of honesty. Tell the interviewer you do not know the answer and ask for another question. This is much better than making up an answer and spreading false information.
Prepare. Preparing for the interview not only gets yourself ready, it also tells the interviewer you value them and their time and time is the greatest commodity we have. This is why being asked into an interview is a great honor. When I prepared for the interview, I prepared my clothes, haircut and other qualities of my appearance. I also had a few questions for them as well, but those weren’t published on the site. This shows that I have genuine interest in them, just as they have in me. It’s respect and respect goes a long way.
Composer John Ross Jesensky’s Recent Interview with HuffingtonPost.com
Composer John Ross Jesensky was recently profiled in an interview by the Huffington Post. Jesensky has seen his work used in an increasing amount of movies and scores as seen by his IMDB profile.
From the HuffPo piece…
“I had known for a while that I wanted to play the piano just like Elton John or Billy Joel. When I finally convinced my parents to let me take lessons, I was thrilled! It was when I bought a cassette of the Jurassic Park soundtrack by John Williams that I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my life. Somehow, I was going to find a way to write music as gorgeous as what I was hearing on my Walkman!”
You know you’re a composer when you can name the composer on the Jurassic Park soundtrack! Also of note, Elton John and Billy Joel are pretty big shoes to fill!
Jesensky can be found many places online including his wordpress blog where he shares his thoughts, such as Music Has Power among others. John Ross Jesensky also has his professional site that he keeps updated with his latest work. Jesensky also maintains (albeit infrequently) a Twitter account showing various passions unrelated to just the piano and composition of music.
