INTERVIEW QUESTIONS

Please be sure to read the GUIDELINES AND REQUIREMENTS below prior to recording. When answering the following questions, please do so on your audio recording in full sentences. Such as, “My biggest challenge is.. and I overcame it by.”

Please answer the following questions on your audio recording in order:
QUESTION 1: Your Impact Founder Statement

Please create a statement using “and” to connect a success and an area you feel challenged as an entrepreneur. It can be personal or professional. We know that it sounds crazy to use “and” instead of “but” or “however”, but trust us. We do this because we when we use “but” or “however”, we dismiss or undervalue the first part of the sentence. This about it, “I like you but…”

I think you get it now. Record your statement by stating it alone from beginning to end, In this question, do not answer in a full sentence. Do not say, “My Impact Founder Statement” before answering the question.

Simply state it like the examples below.
**if you do not use “and” or you do not follow the structure of the 2 part sentence, your audio will NOT be used.**

See Examples: “My business was recently acquired and I filed for divorce”
“I cannot get out of bed in the morning, feel alone and depressed and my business has 40% of the market share in less than a year.”
OR “I experienced a depressive episode that lasted more than 6 months and my business was performing at its best.”
