What Should We Ask?

We love interviewing awesome people. The insight, lessons learned, and overall knowledge shared with the Ideamensch community has been incredible. We want to make it more incredible.

But, we need your help.

We’re going to be adjusting our interview question format slightly in order to have a greater positive influence on the community. We want YOU to make suggestions for our new questions.

If given the chance to ask a single question to the world’s top entrepreneurs and businessmen/women, what would it be? What information and insight would you want to obtain? We’re looking to dig a little deeper into the minds of those interviewed on IdeaMensch, and your question suggestion could be influential in doing so.

So please, go ahead and post your question in the comment section.

Thank you!
