Q1-02:01: Reading about you on your website made it even harder for me to come up with questions, there are so many things I’d like to ask. So, let’s start with what you’re best at, what will you do to make sure I, as well as all our listeners, remember this conversation?

Q2-04:43: The first thing I’ve read about you is that you’re a “recovering boring person.” Could you tell me a little bit about that transformation

Q3-07:25: So, that transformation, how long did it take you to get to the point from totally boring to somewhat memorable?

Q4-09:46: Was there someone specific that you’ve studied that was a bigger influence than others or was it a combination of everybody?

Q5-11:42: When someone is boring, uninteresting, or not a memorable person, what’s behind it? Is it FEAR of rejection?

Q6-15:23: Your bio says that your favorite word is “hilarious.” How do laughter, humor, and amusement play a role in turning yourself into the most memorable person in the room?

Q7-17:32: Your books, courses, and articles delve into always thought-provoking, occasionally offensive topics. Did you ever cross the line?

Q8-24:44: You produced a video which deals with the concept called “Manifesting” and it all starts with gratitude, appreciation of what we already have. Share with our listeners a quick look at manifesting in the Emma J way.

Q10-25:02: It is obvious that everyone wants to achieve what you’re trying to give them, but my question is why? Why do people want to be interesting? Is it yearning for attention? Is it desire to be “the alpha in the pack?”Or is it so they can achieve more and make an influence on the world around them?

Q11-27:38: We have a question from one of our listeners, and I’m sure you can give the perfect answer to this. The question comes from Philip, he is 26 years old software engineer from Germany. The question is: “I’m successful in all aspects of my life except for my social life. Being an introvert, I can’t strike an interesting conversation with a person, which makes it difficult to find new friends or a partner. How can an introvert overcome this problem? ”

Q12-30:03: I’m certain many of our listeners will want to see or hear more from you. What should we all expect from you, what is the next step in your career?
