John Purkiss is a headhunter and co-author of Brand You: http://www.brandyou.info.John has been my sounding-board partner. He helped me find my voice in the blogosphere, thanks to his wicked sense of humour. Here’s more from John
a. What is your life goal?
I don’t have one. If I did, it would be limiting. I am constantly (and pleasantly) surprised by what happens through me when I let go.
b. Do you believe in love at first sight?
I believe in attraction at first sight. Love is infinitely bigger than that.
c. What makes you happy?
I enjoy being well-rested, with a clear mind. I enjoy being immersed in some activity that benefits everyone. I enjoy getting feedback from people who have found our books helpful.
d. The one thing you want to do/ or have done before you die?
There are many things I would like to do. There’s no one thing. The list includes writing another book. Maybe doing video and/or television. Helping some more high-growth companies to succeed.
e. The one ‘clue’ you would share with anyone trying to find their true calling.
Discover the talents you love to use, when you lose track of time, in a way that benefits other people.
