While there are certainly a host of people I would be honored to enjoy a meal with, I think a dinner with Mark Cuban would be awesome. I’m not just saying this because he is my favorite investor on the ABC’s “Shark Tank,” but because I admire the way he does business. Continue reading The Cuban Way
If I could have dinner with anyone in the world right now it would be Jordan Spieth. For anyone who is not a fan of golf, Jordan recently won The Masters at the age of 21. In doing so, he broke the record for the lowest position to par at any point and tied Tiger Woods’ four day scoring record that was set when Tiger was only 5 months younger than Spieth. Perhaps even more impressively, a video has since surfaced of Jordan being interviewed when he was 14. In the interview they ask about his goals and he says only one thing: “I want to win The Masters”. Spieth is such an inspirational person because at the age of 21 he has already accomplished a lifelong goal that many people only dream about. Continue reading How did you win The Masters?
Finding the right person to have dinner is a tough choice. But Dan Friedman, who is the cofounder of Thinkful, would be someone I would be interested in taking out to dinner. Thinkful is an online programming school for grown ups. People who sign up for the course spend 7 to 10 hours weekly on course load costing from $1,200 to $1,500 and weekly one-on-one coaching from mentors, who are industry experts. The courses range from web development to data science in various skills levels. Continue reading A mentor to guide you
I have a small list of celebrities that I would one day like to be friends with. Maybe that’s not okay to admit, but it is the truth. On that list are the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Adele, Sam Heughan, and quite a few others, including the wonderful Mindy Kaling.
Beginning with The Office and following her to The Mindy Project, I have admired Kaling’s sense of humor and work ethic for years. I love that she tells it likes it is and writes characters that are lovable and flawed. The opportunity to have dinner with a role model like Mindy Kaling would be both hilariously fun as well as inspirational.
If I could have dinner with anyone, who would I choose? Ellen DeGeneres and Robert Downey Jr. came to mind, but, while I’m sure meeting either celeb would be amazing, I’m not sure I could carry a great conversation with either for an evening.
So who would be entertaining, do most of the talking, be up for an adventurous venue, and be sure to make me laugh all night?
This girl. Continue reading A Meal Fit for Two Klutzes
This week, the blog council wants you to write about a LIVING person you would like to have dinner with. This can be any person in the world, as long as she or he is not a family member. Some ideas for content include brainstorming questions you would ask them, thinking about where you would go to eat, what you would order and most importantly, why do you want to go to dinner with this person?
You can write it as an actual dialogue.
Use this to SHOW your reader why your person is interesting rather than TELLING the reader. Showing more is a great writing skill.
Be creative with this prompt and have fun, we look forward to seeing your posts!
