40 Days of Lara WellmanA few years ago, I was invited to keynote Social Capital in Ottawa.

It was there I got to meet Lara Wellman.

I was doing a pre-conference workshop and she blew in like a knight in shining armor—there to save my day if anything went wrong.

Nothing did, but I am proud to call her friend these days.

Though she lives in Ottawa, we see each other at least once a year…she even came to Chicago in January.

(OK, that wasn’t to see me, but I like to pretend she braved a Chicago winter just to see me.)

She turns 40 on Sunday and, 38 days ago, she began to do 40 days of Lara on Facebook.

I know she was concerned about it being too much, but I have loved seeing all of the things she’s posted and learned even more about her.

We talk about that and more in today’s Spin Sucks Inquisition.

The Spin Sucks Inquisition

I asked Lara the normal questions (which you can find below), as well as a few extras about her birthday and a new adventure she’s on:

  • Tell us who you are and what you do.
  • What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in the past six months?
  • What is one of the biggest trends you’ll be using this year?
  • What is one thing about yourself that would surprise most people?
  • What is the best book you’ve read in the last six months?
  • What is your latest Netflix binge?
  • The Five Second Rule.
  • Where can people find you online?
