No Matter What – Day 17

We’re back with the No Matter What Game.  This is the place where the world’s greatest coach Gillian provides a writing prompt and I answer no matter what. She can also provide a prompt for you.  Email her at to get started.

G: If you had your own talk show, whom would you love to interview?

P:  Let’s start with everyone on the TED talks lists.  These are some fascinating individuals with compelling stories to tell.  Not only are they brainiacs but also beautiful and bold as they tell their stories as only they know how.

Plus they know how to get their point across in 18 minutes or less, so I’d never have to worry about them hijacking the show.

Specifically I’d love to interview some of the bloggers and teachers I follow:  Marie Forleo, Marianne Williamson, Brene Brown, Gretchen Rubin, Danielle LaPorte, Chase Jarvis, Heidi Rose Robbins, David WhyteMichael Hyatt, Jeff Goins, Tosha Silver, Alexandra Jamieson, Jennifer Grace, Austin Kleon, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Martha Beck, just to name of few.

Fortunately, most of these people have written books and offered online workshops – many of which I’ve participated in – so it’s like having the chance to interview them even if I never have the chance to meet them in person.

We live in amazing times with instant access to incredible teachers. The list of people who inspire me is endless. And most of them are just ordinary folks without websites, books, or workshops.

Which leads me to my next answer.  If I had a talk show, I would love to interview you. That’s right, if you’re reading this, I’d love to have you on the guest list because I know you are up to something worthwhile and I’d love to hear about it. (If you don’t want to wait for my “show”, give us a sneak peak into your current adventure by leaving a comments below.)

PS  – This is a timely question because on Tuesday I will actually be giving an interview on our local radio station to promote an upcoming event as the college.


What do you think?  Who would you interview and why?  Dare to share your thoughts in the comments below.  Or follow along in your own journal.
