TGIF, dear readers!
Here’s the scenario for this week’s Fun Friday:
You’re a successful journalist, well known for getting to the truth behind the issues. You have the opportunity to interview a public figure, and the assurance that they will be completely honest with you. Who would you interview, and what five questions would you ask him/her?
The rules: the person you interview must be alive today, and they have to be a public figure. No spouses, mothers or grandparents, please!
I would interview Oprah Winfrey. The sheer amount of success this woman has achieved is amazing, especially in light of where she started out. She had everything against her: sexually abused and neglected as a child; a poor black woman in a rich white man’s domain. And yet, today’s she’s one of the wealthiest people in the world. Love her or hate her, her story is inspiring.
I would ask the Queen of Talk the following questions:
1) You’ve gone through some really tough times in your career (the cattle trial, etc.). During those bad days when you don’t want to get out of bed and are tired of working so hard, how do you push past it? What motivates you when nothing else will?
