Rebel Readers x 20 Questions
We ask our Rebel Readers to answer 20 quick fire questions in no more than 3 minutes. But can they cut the mustard?
Time to get up close and personal…
1. How did you end up here?
I was recommended to join by someone who knew Ben and Ben, and I was intrigued by a company that had co-founders with the same name. The intrigue continued when I found out about all of the cool books, people, discussions and new thinking involved in RBC.
2. What makes you pick up a book?
If it’s about a topic I’m really interested to know more about, if there’s a lot of hype around it and I’ve been pulled in, or if it’s by an author whose story I really admire.
3. Does it come naturally to you?
Yes and no – I was a massive reader as a child and teenager, then went to university to study English Literature and got put off reading for ages afterwards (needing to read and discuss 3 books a week will do that to you…). Back into it more now, at a pace that suits me.
4. Tell us something you’ve done as a result of reading non-fiction.
I think the learnings and personal development you get from reading non-fiction books are almost immeasurable. In a work sense, I apply a lot of what I read towards growing Untapped. From a personal sense, reading non-fiction definitely makes you a more interesting dinner guest and well-rounded person.
5. What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
The thought of learning new things, growing the business, and spending time with people I love.
6. How do you take your tea?
I don’t drink tea (I know, know), but maybe once a year I’ll have a green tea if I’m feeling fancy.
7. You meet someone who has never read non-fiction and wants to read 3 books in 2021, what do you recommend?
Your mind is about to be opened!
- Born A Crime – Trevor Noah.
- Atomic Habits – James Clear.
- Women Who Launch: Women Who Shattered Glass Ceilings – Marlene Wagman-Gellar.
8. Tell us about your business / passion project / a cause and how we can support it?
I started Untapped Digital four years ago, we work with brands and businesses to get them more attention and customers through social media content and advertising. Always happy to chat all things social media with anyone looking to grow what they’re working on, so do drop me a message.
