I enjoy answering these interview questions posed by Authority Magazine because they’re so uninformed. Their questions perfectly profile people who don’t understand. If their questions were more intelligent, you’d wonder whether anyone got it. But being as uninformed as they are makes it possible to put misconceptions in the cross-hairs.

Q: Was there a particular person who you feel gave you the most help?

Q: Can you share the most interesting mistake that occurred to you?

Q: Can you tell us the story of your transition from athlete to business person?

Q: What are the most exciting projects you’re working on?

Q: Did your experience as an athlete give you entrepreneurial skills?
