The Best Interview I have done in a long, long time

Date: Thursday, April 9, 2015 4:18 PM EDT

One of the challenges of doing so many interviews is that inevitably I am asked different versions of the same questions over and over again.  For the first time in a long time I can say I was actually asked unique questions that put a smile on my face. They were short. Simple. To the point.  They were perfect for the reporter's audience.

Shockingly I had never been asked any of them before.

Here it is

​Dear Mr. Cuban,

My name is Mauricio Vazquez. Today you visited Medrano Middle School to talk to over 100 business students (thank you by the way). I’m a reporter for the school newspaper and we would be incredibly thankful if you could answer a few questions for an interview. If you choose to do so, the segment would be featured in the April issue. Please answer the following questions in however many words you feel is enough and send it to Mrs. Hopkins.
