Growing up, my favorite books were always autobiographies. They gave me a chance to learn about someone I was interested in, without a filter and directly from them.
These days I am not so much interested in famous people as I am the industries or businesses behind them.
I designed the Interview Series to give readers a behind the scenes look at industries of interest. Think of it as crowd sourced information from hundreds of different experts. I start with asking similar questions and am treated to a variety of responses that give insight into the minds behind the subject.
I hope you learn as much as I have while reading the answers these experts provide. I try to compile answers from people who are truly passionate about what they do. Many are small businesses in towns and cities, just like yours. Stop in, support them, and see that passion for yourself.
