While I was at Platform in Dallas, I got a chance to sit down and talk with Cliff Ravenscraft who is otherwise known as “The Podcast Answer Man.” If you are familiar with Cliff and have heard his story, you will get to hear more in depth his path to finding his passion and some of those challenges he faced. If you do not know Cliff, you really need to listen. His message is loaded with power. You will question your path and your passions and hobbies. You will wonder if you too could say “I do whatever I want every day of the week.”

Interview with Cliff Ravenscraft – Passion to Profits
I went into the interview with Cliff with these questions in mind:
- What do you do for a living?
- How did you get started?
- When you started, did you ever think you would make as much money as you did in insurance?
- You found your passion, but where was it before? How did you find it?
- For those who are working and providing but feel discouraged and want more, what would you say to them?
We got to talk through all of these questions and many more.
The Reverse Interview
While technically this interview was not a reverse interview, some of the same characteristics showed up. I asked him how he got started and this led the conversation. The key is that when you hit a person’s passion, they want to share with you and you stand to learn a ton. Cliff and I could have talked over another hour. I stopped the interview knowing he was going to be called back to the stage at any minute at the close of the Platform conference.
