Last month a friend of mine sent over an inspirational video from author and motivational speaker, Eric Thomas.
I did not know what to expect of the video – but was so unbelievably inspired by what I heard, that I wanted to interview him as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, Eric and I are located in different locations, so an in-person interview wouldn’t be able to happen until his next visit to Chicago. I was too inspired to wait that long so instead, we did a Skype interview!
In this interview, Eric first discussed the process of the book and what pushed him to complete it, his upcoming projects (there was so many that I lost count!), and his favorite place to visit for a speaking engagement.
I later took the interview to a more personal level. For those who do not know, Eric releases a new inspirational video every Monday (T.G.I.M.) so I was curious to know which of the lessons he teaches his audience was the hardest for him, followed by his inspirations and where he wants to be five years from now.
This was by far the most inspirational interview/conversation I have had with someone, and I know it will do the same for you. With that being said, after you finish, be sure to check out some more of Eric’s work listed below: the video that inspired me to interview him, as well as the link to his mixtape, ‘The Blueprint to Success.’
