Idea Mensch Interview

An interview with Idea Mensch where I discuss being a self-published author, becoming a brand, and growing Make It MAD to 50,000 monthly readers.

How do you bring ideas to life?
As a writer, I can’t quite explain where the ideas come from. I simply start hitting the keys until someone does something exciting.

What’s one trend that really excites you?
What’s trending on Twitter right now? I’m easily swayed and have no problem conforming. Everything we do, say, or have in 2012 appears to be a trend. Facebook, Instagram, coffee, Zooey Deschanel, blogging, zombies, vampires, sequels. Is Bigfoot a trend? The idea of Bigfoot really excites me.

What was the worst job you ever had and what did you learn from it?
The worst job I ever had was also the best job I ever had: working in a meat-packing plant. What did I learn from it? Don’t eat sausage.

If you were to start again, what would you do differently?
Skip college and hit the road instead.

As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?
Fail, and keep failing. It means you’re trying.
