My IZEAfest interview with Azim Jamal

I was asked to be part of a really great interview series that Azim Jamal is doing in conjunction with his book: The Power of Giving: How Giving back Enriches us All. The interviews he did were about how bloggers give back. They ended up doing over 50 interviews with bloggers.

How do you give back?

    Nice interview Lisa. I'm so glad you did it 🙂

    Isn't Azim a warm, caring man? That really comes across in the interviews. After watching him conduct his interviews at IZEAFest and hearing what others had to say, I was quite comfortable doing my very first video interview. And, I'm glad I did. He's very quick to pick up on your strong points 🙂
