More On InnerviewingInnerviewing is an internal process and defines communication between you and your authentic self. It requires knowing who you are, what you want, and why. Interviewing is an external process and defines the exchange where two parties are interacting to get to know each other better. It requires that both the company and the individual innerview to explore what they truly want so that they can determine if there is interest. Great interviewing is preceded by great innerviewing—your discoveries about yourself, your desired career path, and the company prior to the interview will be captured in your résumé, cover letter, 30 second pitch, and interview answers.
Interviewing is natural after you’ve properly innerviewed, but innerview isn’t taught anywhere—instead of self-discovery being a direct result of higher education, it’s oftentimes a derivative. The world has shifted drastically and in many ways college hasn’t caught up. Therefore, there are some challenges that come along with this huge shift in your life. A good GPA and good personality used to be all you needed to get a good job, but today that isn’t the case because a GPA is only a correlative measurement for how hard of a worker you are. In many instances it measure how much you think within the box rather than how much you think outside of it. In the box thinking has led us into the economy we are in today where unemployment rates hover around 10% and only 25% of college graduates are graduating with a job in hand. Out of the box thinking is the only thing that is going to get us out of this mess and revive our hopes and dreams.
My mission is to help people achieve freedom through self-mastery, skill mastery, masterminds, and business mastery. That's why I founded TheFreedomSchool.com—an online university that teaches business and life coaches, consultants, speakers, and authors how to turn their intelligence into income and impact and build businesses bigger than themselves. I also created Masterminds.org an online platform to help coaches and online educators start, scale, and sustain virtual mastermind groups that provide ongoing accountability to turn information into transformation.
I'm blessed to be a 6-time author, 5-time TED speaker, and featured on MSNBC, Forbes, and INC Magazine. I earned my MBA and Masters in Education from Stanford University and my BA from UCLA in 3 years. I am originally from Oakland, California and currently reside in Brooklyn, New York with my wife, Pam, and my daughter, Jada.
