Lou DraperBy Gini Dietrich

You know how I always brag about all the great friends I’ve made through this very blog?

Well, today’s featured guest is no exception…and she’s all the way from New Zealand (which means you get to listen to an incredible accent)!

I’ll admit I’m a little reticent to have you watch this week’s Inquisition because she totally calls me on the carpet during the Five Second Rule. I mean, at a #micdrop level.

But hey! What fun is it if we aren’t making fun of me? I mean, for the rest of you…not for me, of course.

And, with that, I’m excited to introduce you to Lou Draper.

Lou is the founder of not one, but two, PR firms (one she co-founded earlier this year) in Wellington—LOUD in Public and Draper Cormack.

She also has a crazy and sordid past, which includes a mobile espresso truck and make-up artistry.

I met her when she took the Modern Blogging Masterclass pilot last year and we became fast friends.

So here she is…in all her glorious accent, calling me on the carpet glory!

The Spin Sucks Inquisition

I asked Lou the normal questions (which you can find below):

  • 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?
