Vogue 73 Questions
I’ve got 73 questions and answers coming your way today, inspired by Vogue Magazine’s 73 question series.
I’ve watched a lot of these videos and they are great; they give you a lot of insight into the people answering the questions and help dispel a lot of myths and assumptions.
The basis of it is that you are asked and answer the questions in a single take, and in under 10 minutes...no do overs, no second takes, no take backs.
So below check out my answers to the 73 questions…
And once you’ve watched it (or read it if that’s better) ask yourself the same questions and put your answers in the comments section under the post...I’d love to learn more about you too!
